Happy DST, Sparkers!

Monday, March 12, 2012

Unlike a lot of people, I love DST. I love not having the sun in my eyes as I squint to see the stoplights on my morning commute. I love still having 2 hours of daylight left when I get home in the evening. And I love the warmer temperatures. My body even does pretty well on the spring ahead time schedule; this morning at 5 AM I was wide awake. Not out of bed mind you, but awake emoticon.

Today is the first full day of my 10 Weeks to New Orleans plan. Yesterday I got groceries, but I was lazy and used the drive through pickup. They gave me strawberry greek yogurt instead of plain :( Just when I was trying to get used to plain to cut my sugar intake... /sigh. Oh well. Not the end of the world I guess.

I planned to go running yesterday but my calves were still on fire from my hike on Saturday. According to Spark that burned over 900 calories!!! I have never burned that many calories at once before. I am definitely going hiking again soon. But anyway, I decided to go for a walk instead of a run. Hey, it's something.

So yeah, first full day of my plan and I've had a couple little snags, but I am still very excited! And I have a date with Jillian Michaels tonight, I'm sure she'll be happy to whip me into shape emoticon. I even thought about taking before pics to compare to when we go on our vacay. I know if I stick with doing that No More Trouble Zones video 2x a week I will see results. That video used to kick my @ss regularly... I've never even finished the whole thing. But like a lot of things I did before and then tried again this year, I am hoping to see some improvements due to my increased fitness level. Fingers crossed anyway...

Hope you all are ready to kick some Monday butt!! emoticon emoticon Whether you bike, walk, do a video, swim, or just play with your kids for a while, make it a Sparkalicious day!!

    I love the extra sunlight from daylight's savings as well. unfortunately we don't have daylight's savings here in QLD but it's kind of entertaining to argue with the locals about why we should since a lot of them are dead set against it!

    Yeah, I like DST, too. We slept half the day Saturday so that we would be ready for it this morning. I love being able to go run in the woods later in the evening. And, like you said, it means warmer weather is just around the corner. It's been really nice here already and last night the weather man said he thinks winter is over and it will just steadily get warmer now. ah.

    The extra sunlight is great. I'm getting up early to take advantage of it.
