Hello from freezing rain Toronto, Ontario Canada! I am officially over climate change, Polar Vortex last week with a snow storm from hell, then now mild Spring like temps, melted all the snow and we have pouring rain and now we are back to cold temps, snow and expecting freezing rain later toady and Polar Vortex temps again next week. What's it like where you live?
Accountability: spot on, skipped breakfast, and was not hungry in the evening, for a change!
Which brings me to my QOTD: Are you a evening snack person? Do you love to have a snack just before bed? Pre op and post op I have a hard time breaking the routine of having a late night snack before bed. I would prefer to have something sweet like a slice of cake or cupcake but since that is out I now eat vanilla yogurt with SF jam, its not the same of course but it will have to do. I love love love evening snacks and this is when I could go totally overboard if I let myself. And I struggle with this, as I love late night snacking.

Answers to your problems are not at the bottom of a chip bag or in a box of Oreo's! You can do this!
I'm up but not ready to move yet so I figured I'd pop in here. Weather here in the northeast has been just what you described but to a lesser severity. Not as cold, barely any snow and a few warm days sprinkled in between.
Right after work I'll meet up with the hubby and kids and go to the auto show. We're going mid week to avoid crowds and actually enjoy it. We'll grab dinner in the city too. Its now just 18 days left to my half marathon in Disney. I'm am SO READY. I'm proud how consistently i stuck to my training. I signed up for a popular 10-mile run in my city for May, but its lottery based so I may not get in.
Qotd: nope, not a late night snacker or desire a snack before bed. I just never did- even tried to make it a habit but nope-- it neve atuxk. Once I eat dinner I'm done for the night. That space between after work and dinner is brutal though-- munchie fest!

I am so so wowed by you everyday! you are amazing!!
I always wanted to do the Disney Princess half but my hips are really in bad shape and I can't run without discomfort. I loved running but it didn't love me back. I am living vicariously through you and your running! Good luck!
You can't measure your achievements with someone else's yardstick!
