I woke to a massive snowfall in Ontario this morning-cleaned about 3/4 foot of snow off my car, but there was no way I was going to make the usual 30 minute commute into work today. I was able to enjoy my workout in the morning instead of evening. I went outside a few hours later, cleaned about the same amount of snow off my car again as well as the sidewalks. Great workout opportunities today. Some may think it crazy to clear away snow when it is still snowing, but in my mind it is accomplishing two things - an extra workout, and I will have less heavier snow to clear off once this storm comes to an end. My legs are certainly feeling energized. It is a day like this I wish I had some snowshoes-now what a workout that would be.

I was telling a friend, about the workout I had done last night. She told me she wished she had my energy to move forward to good health. I told her, it wasn't so much about the energy I had (I was tired after standing on my feet all day moving around already at work), but I knew I had the workout DVD's and have been avoiding the gym currently. I know 43 is just around the corner. I know what I want-to be fit and healthy, and sitting in my comfy chair in front of the tv for the last 20 of those 43 years got me where I am and isn't going to make it happen, but getting up and moving is another step closer to it. It is happening. It isn't in the distance. Every night I do a cool down routine, and one of the stretches takes balance, which mine wasn't good. Since I have started, I have seen a difference in my co-ordination. After I complete the workouts my energy level is up. I like that. And so, I will keep moving forward and hope my friend will also stop wishing about what she wants, and also moves forward to get what she wants.

Tonight consisted of the Biggest Loser walk 1 and 3. I began walk 1 but kept getting interrupted. I stopped having completed 1/4 of it, and came back to it later in the evening, beginning from the beginning. I was tired by then, but just knew I had to do it, or tomorrow I might not do it. Walk 3 is more of jogging and jumping jacks and sprints in place. I didnt want to make a lot of noise, so I actually completed it with my shoes off. I still worked up a good sweat. I think I will sleep quite well this evening.

I am feeling pretty darn good-tired but good. I have been consistent with my workout program for almost two weeks. I would feel myself sinking down on the comfy chair in front of the tv after work, and know I had a short work out waiting for me, got up to get it done. Tonight I did walk #4 of the Biggest Loser power walk Dvd, then I added 10 minutes of high burn cardio from the Biggest loser 2 workout.Short workouts, but the last one had me really sweating. Thanks trainer Kim. I am actually looking forward to even tomorrow nights schedule which involves running and sprints. woooooooohooooooooo. I haven't stepped on a scale yet, but I can feel a difference. Maybe it is in my mind at the moment,but that is enough to keep me motivated and moving forward.

Two days of commitment! I started yesterday. I actually surprised myself (not really) with how out of shape I am. I bought some new fitness DVD's. With the new year, everything to do with fitness can be found on sale in stores. I bought some Biggest Loser DVD's. I would like some of the Sparkpeople items, but I don't believe they ship to Canada, so I am getting back into taking advantage of the website. Time working out wasn't long to start-a 16 minute indoor power walk yesterday, and a 21 minutes one today. But I felt it. I am motivated after it. In fact, as soon as I log off here, I think I may hop on my upright bike or my recumbant and pedal for a bit. I have decided I am going to slowly work my way back into the gym-I mean I pay for it. Anxiety is a big issue with me-and crowds, so my plan is to start this Friday after work-it will have died down some as the week progressed. I am moving forward, back on the right path which I have chosen. Yay me!!!
