Busy days at work are best, because they seem to make the time fly by. Boy was time going at warp speed yesterday! Sometimes I impress myself with my multitasking skills.
I let Bill know before I left for work that I planned on walking once I got home for the day. We texted back and forth during the day about the snow that was falling, then wasn't, then was. I liked seeing it fall outside our office window, all lazy and drifty and quiet. As long as it doesn't stick and make everything icy, I'm all for it!
Unfortunately, by the time I got home, it had warmed enough to turn everything to mist/drizzle rather than rain, but that's alright, I walked in it anyway. I didn't get cold (base layer under technical long-sleeve shirt, regular long workout pants, gloves, ear muff, neck gator, hat, SmartWool socks) and was able to keep up a pretty good pace. I think I'm going to start including the 59th St hill in my route. It doesn't really add any distance (I ended up at 2.5 miles) but it's a steep incline that gets my ticker pumpin'! It's a good feeling to reach the top of the hill and keep on going, breathing hard but not stopping.

Of course, when I changed to go out and walk, I forgot to clip on my Fitbit, so it didn't log my steps, mileage, or calories burned. That's ok, I remember how to enter that stuff manually LOL
The Bacon Brussel Sprouts were delish, btw.
I know I need to start reigning in my appetite and bring that calorie count down down down. It's all working for me right now though so we'll see.
BLC officially starts TOMORROW so I'm excited for that to see how it all shakes out.
