Rain & cold, please go away....

Monday, December 07, 2009

I have been blessed to have been able to walk daily for most of this year. So these past few weeks have been humbling indeed.

Cathy & I simply cannot walk in the rain or in weather below 40 for various reasons.

We are champing at the bit to get out there again!

The good news is I am managing to stay pretty much within range for my calories. Sheesh, this is the flip-side of my lifestyle changes!


**it ain't much but I managed 3 miles yesterday and 3 miles today! keeping my fingers crossed for 6 tomorrow!

    I did WATP twice today because it was snowing here today. I really like to be able to do that when I don't feel like going outside. I know you are a fan off WATP too. In fact, I think reading about you doing it is what got me interested in trying it in the first place.

    Seems like it's crappy outside everywhere........I hope you can get back to walking outside again soon!

    It's true, Linda - we really are getting into "crappy outdoor walking" season. I hope it warms up, though, so you and Cathy can take your walks! - Susan emoticon

    I enjoy my outdoor walking but now it is almost out of the question. I get too cold. So I am either inside with Leslie or get to the gym.

    Every morning I wake up and start checking the weather to see if I can run outside or if I have to go on the "dreadmill". So far, I've managed to avoid it - I've ran outside in below 20! (Love my cuddleduds). Looks like I'll get outside this morning, but tomorrow we have high winds, rain mixed with snow - think the treadmill is looking better:)

    Still going to run outside when I can.

    We have snow now. It gets treaturous some days when the wind blows and anything wet turns to ice. This is my world 6 months of the year. We have been blessed with a snow free month this past November so I am just bundling up , putting on the boots and getting out there. My little dog seems to love the cold weather so out we go! Welcome to the Great White North. LOL

    oh yes , I so know the feeling, the days it is warm enough it rains. I am having trouble losing but am maintaining. I need the walking. I have tried a treadmill and it ends up hurting my knees. I also would swim but the darn pool here is really cold, I thought about maybe skating on it ;-) So I am looking at mall walking or maybe an inside track some where. I need and miss my walking so much. I have tried a few times doing inside RV walking but this is almost impossible with the extra things that my son brought with and also with our holiday extras. UGH...I am working on this.
    Blessings, Em

    I know what you mean. The hub and I like to walk outside as much as possible but these temps have us staying inside. I've been doing a lot of marching in place while watching TV. lol
