No I didn't walk the dog today in the cold, BUT I did spend about four hours at the barn. My younger daughter had a dressage lesson and yes it was COLD! Now I understand what "cold down to your bones" means. Ok, it wasn't that bad! However, I was wearing my Carhart boots
and my toes still got cold....that's pretty cold! It felt almost balmy once we were out of the barn and back in the sun. No, the "training" barn was not heated, but luckily our barn is.
So Lady spent two hours in a stall with her cooler on so that she could be completely dry before she was put back into her outdoor paddock. While she dried we went to Subway where I had the kid's turkey meal with lowfat milk and apples.
I didn't get my normal power walk in, but I did walk a lot and help carry tack. Plus getting in and out of the truck a bunch of times. It may be a stretch, but I counted it all as exercise. I'm also going to do some strength training tonight. Right now my calories are pretty low...almost too low, below 1,000, but it's late and I'm really not hungry.
I'd better get to those weights before I change my mind. Stay warm everyone!!
