Iced In

While we have had a bit of snow this winter, tonight, we are officially iced in at home. We're in the midst of a super nasty ice storm that promises to be quite nasty.  It's beautiful to see the trees ... from my position on the couch. I slipped and fell on our front porch taking this photo:
Because our porch currently looks like this:
You're welcome, Internet. I put considerable pain into this blog, especially tonight.

Before we got iced over, Tim and I started the day with a trip to the gym. I'm working on some of my favorite CrossFit moves and  did a few miles on the treadmill. And by a few, I mean two. I really need to get my act together. When we got home, I wanted waffles. With Weight Watchers, I can eat anything I want, just not everything, so I adjusted my remaining points accordingly. Snazzy Gourmet sent me this sweet potato waffle mix and I wasn't about to pass them up.

They were totally worth it.  I busted out the Bugs Bunny Waffle Maker and enjoyed these cinnamon-y, delicious waffles. They were everything I hoped for.
Since we're stuck inside, I spent my evening prepping my meals for the week.  I've been eating the same lunch pretty much every day, so now I'm set for the week. It's just as easy for me to make and measure out one lunch as it is to prepare five, so I just get it all together at the same time. Lunch this week will be quinoa, veggies and turkey Polish sausage, which I'm kind of obsessed with lately.  It's a five-point lunch, so I usually pair it with a salad, yogurt and an apple. I also chopped up veggies and portioned hummus for snacks, measured out a large container of Greek yogurt and added strawberries and portioned out some snacks for the week. It makes following points pretty easy and foolproof.
Now I'm off to enjoy the rest of my book with Napoleon. He seems to have a bit of a static problem this winter.

I haven't been out since 11 this morning. I agree the trees are pretty. I hope you are ok.

Oh my, Napoleon is so cute!!

We got some snow this morning, but it has warmed up and it turned to freezing rain. Now it's just raining.
