First frost and odds and ends

Icy windows and crunchy grass; we had our first frost this morning. It was c-c-c-cold! Luckily for me I have an auto-start on my car. Got to love that!

Things my dear husband says to me:

As we were walking in Costco the other day we happened to go by the eliptical trainers and treadmills. He says, "Do you want to buy one of these so you can sell it at your garage sale next year for $75?"

I'm on a diet so of course I'm craving everything fattening within sight. I passed up a yummy looking cream filled, chocolate covered donut at work. Then brownies and pumpkin pie later in the day. Why does everyone have to bring out the goodies when I can't have them? Tomorrow one of my co-workers is bringing in a Boston Cream Pie. Not fair!

I bought some icky diet fudge bars at the store. Now my mouth tastes like fake sweeteners. I hate that taste. I should have known better!

Good luck on your diet. I am in that mode too. Must be done. Must be healthy.

So you're not going to have a pound of bacon on your BLT's anymore?

Your husband is a hoot. We have four pieces of work out equipment in our (should be) master bedroom/gym. I sometimes use the treadmill. Sit on the weight bench to tie my shoes. DH sometimes uses the bike and the nordic track. Two of them we bought at garage sales. Sometimes is NOT often enough.

Dieting is sooo hard! I wish you success... then when I go on a diet again (for the 100th time) you can wish me success... deal?

Oh wow. I am so not into cold weather yet. Thats obscene to be cold now. LOL I have found that bicycle exercisers make great clothes racks. :))
