Well actually today isn't that bad, it's 2 degrees celcius and they're announcing 2-4 centimeters of snow. But right now, there is absolutely NO snow at all on the ground (or anywhere). That is INSANE for mid-January here. I've asked my coworker Judy if she's ever seen a winter with this little snow, ever. She said never. It's so bizzarre. It feels like a really cold fall day. Dead leaves are blowing everywhere, since they didn't have a chance to turn into mush under the usual footage of snow. But the thing is we still have to walk around in our stupid boots because one minute it's raining, one minute there's freezing rain, we keep expecting snow... Maybe mother nature is on strike.
Well I still haven't lost that stupid pound. I know I know I shouldn't weigh myself every single day, but I have SO much weigth to lose that I usually lose at least a decimal every day. And I really need the validation that I'm doing something right. But right now I've been stuck at this weight for a few days and I'm racking my brain thinking of what I'm doing wrong... Speaking of wrong : At the diabetic clinic on wednesday, the nutritionist kept insisint, much to dh's pleasure, that there is NOTHING wrong with drinking as much diet pop as he wishes. I kept trying to politely disagree, I had finally convinced him that he shouldn't be drinking massive amounts of the poison daily, and he had cut down considerably. From 2-4 litres a day, to 500ml 2 or 3 times a week. As soon as we got out of the diabetic clinic he started drinking 2 litres a day again. *slaps forehead*.
On a brighter note, apparently the provincial government is investing $2 Millions for healthcare. To PREVENT diseases and promote physical activity and breastfeeding and discourage nicotine use. $2 Mil is not nearly enough but it's at least a good start. Apparently hospitals will only encourage formula feeding when it's medically necessary, although letting the new mother make the final choice if she insists on formula. It is not clear if the mother who choses to use formula will be provided with free formula still. But they are investing 200 000$ to promote breastfeeding. A step in the right direction.
Well, I have to go get ready for my chiro appointment. bbiab.
