I haven't been weighing myself lately - my weight fluctuates so much day to day these days (more so than has been the case in the past few years) that it's frustrating and I don't feel like it tells me much about where I'm actually at.
The three of us - DH, DD, and me - went xc skiing yesterday. The conditions were not great - the temperatures have been bouncing around the freezing mark and so the trails had become icy and rutted. However, DD skied off with her training group and DH and I went off for our own ski excursion. Wasn't long before I bailed out - I was struggling to get up the hills because of the ice and scared going down the hills, again because of the ice. So we went off to a flat practice grid and just practiced technique drills back and forth for a while, which was very useful.
I wound up coming back to the lodge because my left hand was really cold and wasn't warming up (DH kept skiing). A few other people were in the lodge too, a few of them commenting on how cold it felt even though the temperature on the thermometer wasn't all that low. All of a sudden DD came in, without the rest of her training group. She said she had had to come back because her hands were so cold. Then, all of a sudden, she got really faint and dizzy and I had to help her lie down on a bench. I think that she had a blood sugar crash as a result of having gotten so cold. I got her a chocolate bar from the vending machine and eventually she was able to sit up. By that time DH was back so we sent DD off to the car to get the heat going and DH and I packed up all the gear and we drove back into town.
DD had her Grade 12 grad photos yesterday afternoon and she was allowed to bring "props" - she decided to bring our older dog, and asked me to come along to help with dog-wrangling. It was a pretty funny scene in the school gym as many of the kids had brought dogs - including one SUPER-CUTE four-month-old border collie puppy - and one had brought in a cat, so there were lots of very excited animals and owners trying to keep order
. I helped out with DD's photos that included the dog and then, when they moved on to the serious/formal/dog-free shots, moved off to a quieter space.
