The storm wasn't as bad as I expected and we never lost power. I can't begin to say how thankful I am for that. I've spend a few days snowed into my apartment without any heat, and although we survived just fine, it isn't as fun as romantic movies make it seem, lol. I did manage to get quite a bit of knitting done, besides this completed sweater. I knit through the 2nd clue for Follow Your Arrow, and yesterday I banged out the 3rd clue in one day!
On a slightly related note, I've gained quite a bit of weight since my injury. That happens when you go from being really really active to sitting all day. Aaron recently got started as an Herbalife representative so I took advantage of his discount in exchange for being a Guinna pig. I've been having protein shakes for breakfast and lunch, and then eating better at dinner. So far, I've felt great. I haven't been hungry. I've been making shakes with real food that I would normally eat but don't always have time to eat on work days. I also picked up the suggested supplements and I'm enjoying feeling alert and satisfied when I eat. So far I've lost about one pound a week, and considering that the only exercise I get is what I can do at physical therapy, that's not too shabby. I think it's really important to get off as much extra weight as I can, not for appearances sake (I carry my weight really well and most people don't know I'm over weight), but for health reasons. And it'll definitely be easier on my surgically repaired knee if I'm carrying less weight around. So, I'll let you all know how it goes.
