Sunday afternoon... potato baking in the oven, warm lunch on a chill day. Yesterday I had errands to run, despite the weather forecast. Made it to the periodontist just as the rain started to change over. Home after to change, then to the gym where I asked the personal trainer to "be nice to me, I shovel by hand". Hah! As my son said, "Good luck with that, Mom!"
Anyway, it was a great workout, and I decided to wait 'til morning to clear off the snow. Well! Those of you who live in climates like mine know that's a chancy decision. Wait too long, and in falling temperatures, wet slushy snow on the ground turns into textures ice. So this morning's workout began with that ice/snow reduction exercise. The hope now is that the sun will be strong enough even with a high of 30 to evaporate or melt the residue.
I also followed through on my "blended" training plan to start the Spark "5K your way" plan, as it just fits nicer into that plan than the Couch fo 5K I did last year. I did a treadmill rotation, longer than officially noted, as I added warmup / cooldown to the workout.
And with this level of meeting my promises to myself, and avoiding procrastination... so far, food plan is on track! First weekend in quite some time I've been able to say that for the whole weekend. Yep, "don't get cocky".
Here's to good decisions, delivered one at a time. Life's good... Spark on!
