New Orleans is well known for rain that appears without warning. It has been raining here for two solid days. Sunday, I spent the day cleaning between watching football games. Football is difficult for me because prior to my banding, it would include junk food, beer and sweets. I didn't do badly at all. I avoided the beer and talked my husband into grilling before the game. Today it is raining again, my husband and I elected to drive to the gym to use the treadmill for our morning walk. I was very pleased with myself for two reasons. 1. normally the rain would have given me an excuse to bail on exercise and 2. I even added some light jogging on the treadmill. Looks like the rain did not derail my journey along my new healthier lifestyle.
