Boy, is it snowing out there! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

We already have at leastย 8 inches of snow on the ground and it’s not expected to stop until 8:00 tonight. We’re snowed in!

I woke up craving something cool and creamy, so I immediately made myself a protein shake with iced coffee, soy milk, and Vanilla Whey Superior Charge.

Then, I toasted a frozen waffle and added peanut butter and banana sliced to it.

Perfect breakfast.

Allowing myself daily treats has satisfied my sugar cravings without overdoing it. Here are a few of my favorite (mostly) healthy treats: Sweet Snacks: 3 Treats That Help Keep Cravings Under Control

Question of the Day

Are you a warm weather or a cold weather person?



  1. Warm weather all the way. I moved away from the Midwest because I couldn’t handle winters anymore. The snow is pretty for a few minutes, but then I don’t want to be near it. I’ll take my year round sunshine!

  2. Fall is definitely my favorite season, so it’s hard for me to say I’m totally a warm or totally a cold weather person. One thing I do know for sure is that I don’t like it THIS cold!

  3. I grew up in the midwest, so I have to admit I do love being snowed in– no better excuse to cuddle up and watch movies! However, I have lived in the south for the last 7 years, so I have gotten very spoiled by year round 70 degree weather!!

  4. I’m definitely a cold weather person, but I’d rather my cold weather come in the fall. Once Christmas is over, I’m ready for spring. Unfortunately, that’s when the dead of winter sets in.

    Can’t say I’ll ever be a “warm weather” person. Of course, I don’t know that I’ve ever experienced steadily “warm” weather. Last year we had about one week of “spring-like” weather bookended by a harsh winter and blistering hot summer. My plants just hadn’t a chance.

  5. I love freshly fallen snow! Pretty!

    I think I am in between. I dislike anything really hot and really cold. Give me a place where the climate is fall-like year round then you’ll see a very happy camper. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I’m definitely a warm weather person! In Atlanta we are still snowed in from the 5 inches we got on Sunday night. The snow is gorgeous, but being stuck in the house is really making me wish it was Summer time!!

  7. ever since you mentioned that you needed to cut back on sugar i took a look at myself and realized i was a bit out of control (i may have eaten 2 dozen butterball cookies in a week). i realized when my sugar craving starts, usually after lunch, so i’m making an extra effort to add in protein and replace my afternoon chocolate with dried fruit. yes, not the same as a candy bar, but it’s all about getting used to things.

  8. your snow photos are so pretty! i’m a cold weather-wisconsin girl all the way! ๐Ÿ™‚ don’t get me wrong, i like summer, but when it gets warmer than 75 degrees i get a little cranky.

  9. Snowed in as well and work got cancelled. It is a great day to get mid-week chores done. Will be going out this afternoon to shovel. I am hoping it isn’t as bad as it looks.

  10. The snow is so crazy! It definitely looks like there’s about a foot out there already. I didn’t even have to go to work today because of it, so I’m enjoying a nice, warm day at home. =) I’m a warm weather girl all the way. I don’t like extreme heat like in the summer, but I love, love, love the spring! It’s the perfect weather. Can’t wait for it!

  11. Ahh so much snow!
    I live in Halifax on the east coast of Canada and we`re supposed to get a combination of what you`re getting and a storm making its way from western Canada. Seeing these photos make me so anxious about the coming snow! I`ll have to make sure to stock up on wine and yummy food to make it cozy!

  12. I saw on the news this morning that you guys were getting hammered with snow- did Mal at least get a snow day?? ๐Ÿ™‚ I like to think I’m adaptable to the seasons, but man am I excited when the first 60 degree spring day rolls around!

  13. Well, at least you have gorgeous pictures!
    Cold here. However, I’m in CA so for me anything below 70 degrees is cold. LOL.

  14. It is so crazy out there! I am definitely a warm weather person, but I’m trying hard to embrace the relaxation of being snowed in and relaxed. I am also getting excited for some skiing to make the winter seem more fun!

  15. I love the hot and cold equally. I am really enjoying the frigid temps right now, but everytime another city gets blasted with snow, I get a bit jealous. I live in Wyoming and I’m pretty sure all that snowfall is supposed to be here.

  16. After I lost 100 pounds winters became really hard for me. I am SO COLD all the time. I wear tons of layers and I’m just always freezing!

  17. I’m working on my intuitive eating and I also found that allowing myself a treat when I want one has helped with my cravings. It’s also helped tremendously with my portions so I’m super happy with that. It’s a work in progress so we’ll see what happens.

  18. Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons! Summer is too hot and winter is just depressing after the holidays. Spring where are you???

  19. I’m from CT and snowed in, as well. I don’t remember getting this much snow since I was a kid. I might not be out there making snowmen, like I was back then, but I’m just as happy with my snow day (maybe even more so) ๐Ÿ˜‰ Stay safe and warm!

    PS: Your breakfast looks yummy. I’ll have to remember that for the future.
