Superstorm Lyddie

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

It's grey and bleak and rainy in the aftermath of Sandy. We were very fortunate in my town (Chambersburg, PA) and escaped with some flooding and power outages. I know that some people had to evacuate their homes and there are still closed roads and downed trees, but it could have been much, much worse. I am expecting that schools will reopen tomorrow, as long as there is power.

I took advantage of having another day off, got my butt in gear, and worked out. YAY!!! I was full of excuses, why I couldn't do it, but ended up telling myself to shut up and get my sneakers on. I wanted to walk outside, but the wind is still gusting and I didn't want to risk getting nailed by a falling branch, so I did a Leslie Sansone mile and then a Coach Nicole upper body strength training video with a resistance band. My foot was bothering me a little during the cardio; I am going to have to break down and get some better sneakers. It was 22 total minutes of exercise, which is not a tremendous amount, but the great thing is that I DID IT.

    Last I checked, twenty-two is still more than ZERO! Good job!

Glad you're ok after that storm. A lot of people aren't.
