Happy Spring! At 2:55 PM it is 38.3C (101F for you Americans)
Today's SparkPeople Day at a Glance calendar page is:
Get outside and enjoy the first day of spring! For a fun activity that keeps you in shape, try hiking. Find a park or trail near you and take to the hills to torch calories, build enrurance, and strengthen your bones.
I would LOVE to do this in New Hampshire but the trails are filled with ticks, mites, mosquitoes, black flies and wild animal droppings.
I did eat the corned beef yesterday but it was on the dry side because I got a very lean piece of beef to start off with. I only had 3 ozs beef, 2 cups carrots, 1/2 cup potato, 1 cup cabbage, 2 cups tossed salad and 2 pieces of home made Irish Soda bread and water. It was good and we'll be eating leftovers for a few days.

This is my weekend. Today I am cooking the St. Patrick's Day meal so our friends can join us. Corned beef, cabbage, carrots, potatoes, tossed salad and Irish Soda bread. I WILL portion my plate.
I have a wicked sinus/allergy thing going on today and I don't know why. The weather is no worse than usual, the trees are pretty much gone now. Maybe I stirred up to much dust yesterday when I cleaned.
Today's SparkPeople daily calendar entry:
Start a Journal. Use it to track your progress, record your successes and learn from your mistakes. When you have a bad day, use it to remember why you chose your goals and how far you've come to date.
I do keep a journal and record progress and slip ups.

Today's Spark Calendar page says:
Plan something fun. Set aside time to participate in activities you enjoy on a regular basis. Plan a weekend trip, take a drawing class, or schedule a round of golf. Enjoy your life to the fullest!
Today I spent cleaning, an entire hour of vacuuming alone. I have to use a shop-vac because my regular vacuum cleaner doesn't work well. I have to get down on the floor and push the end of the vacuum over the dirt & stuff so I do it sort of aerobic style, so many pushes with the right arm, so many with the left arm, stand up, squat down and push again. An hour later the chocolate brown carpet was sort of clean. The white cat hair doesn't come up out of the brown carpet very easily. Then back and forth down the hall, up and down stairs.
Later I will dy my walking video too.

This is today's page from my Spark daily desk calendar:
Happy ST. Patrick's Day! Research shows that moderate drinking can prevent certain diseases, but binge drinking is never a good idea. If you do imbibe, limit it to 1 drink daily for women and 2 drinks daily for men.
I WISH I could have a REAL beer or a REAL margarita or a REAL glass of wine, there is NO alcohol here but DH does make his own beer but it's just not the same.
I did my 2 1/2 mile 53 minute walk this morning and will do my walking video this afternoon.
My internet seems to be back up and normal today.

My husband's co-worker came back from the US the other day with some things for me. I now have a SparkPeople daily desk calendar, a SparkPeople monthly calendar, a Spark People t-shirt that I can wear here when I walk because I bought it 3 sizes too big and some Spark People "business cards" to hand out. Those were freebies. These are GREAT goodies! Woo Hoo! And since I'm an avid cross stitcher, I got a piece of graph paper and tried to chart the Spark People Logo to stitch, LOL. It would make a GREAT LUGGAGE TAG TOO! Hint hint Spark bosses
My internet is not working right today, IE is so very messed up and won't load 1/2 the pages no matter how often I clean out cookies, cache, history, reboot, dump temp internet files, reboot, log out of everything, reboot etc. Firefox works a tad bit better but not much. I won't be able to log a lot of stuff I want to today.
I did do a 52 minute, 2 3/4 mile walk today and I did the walking video. Woo Hoo!
