Unseasonably Warm Weather for a Day

Unseasonably Warm Weather for a Day
Day before yesterday, we had unseasonably warm weather--the kind where you can walk around wearing short sleeves. I had a lot of work to do, but I knew it was going to rain the next day, and turn to snow the day after. So, I did what any responsible, grown woman would do. I gathered up my outside toys (except for the hippity hop; the ground was too soggy for that) and went outside to play. Thought Iíd bring you along, just for kicks. I hooped, goofed around with my new sock poi and diabolo, and just had fun for about 45 minutes. It was a good way to squeeze in some cardio and blow the cobwebs out of my head at the same time. Afterwards, I was able to take another crack at some challenging projects, with a fresh perspective. It really helped. And, sure enough--it rained the next day and yup, today is cold and snowy. That whole ďmake hay while the sun shinesĒ saying certainly has some truth to it.

Quick streak update: Day 669 for workout streak--elliptical and some indoor hooping. Day 4 of food tracking--I pre-tracked my whole day this morning. Feels good, because that means I have a plan. I was even able to tweak a few things, bringing the day closer to the lower end of my range. This is a good thing, a very good thing.

Iíll leave you with this entry from Day 29 in my Daily Creativity Journal: Make a disguise for yourself, a friend, a pet...


Iím gonna make him some parsley he canít refuse. heh heh

    I had to comment again. My 7yo daughter wanted me to tell you she really like your hula hooping. Sylvia (my little girl) also wanted to tell you she came in second place in a hula hoop contest. Oh and it was a 9yo that beat her.

Keep hula hooping!

    Great stuff, Shelli! Thanks for sharing your fun with me.

I've broken my leg so cardio exercise (and indeed doing anything around the house!) is very difficult but today I managed to hobble round the block on my crutches!

    I love watching your videos. They bring back all the fun memories of playing with such great outside toys. You prove that exercise doesn't need to feel like work instead it can be like being a kid again and playing. Thanks for sharing.

    You looking good and you know what I see you getting thinner and thinner. Butt thinner, hips, legs and your tummy has really come down.
I don't think there is anything you do not try and when you do. You do it so well. Like the work out for your upper with those sock ball whatever you name them. Where you manage to find fun things but very useful in exercise is beyond me for upper. Crazy but so fun. Only you can find them.You actually look thinner in the face and your neck too. Way to go.

Is your hair natural like I mean wavy? It always looks so nice even after you sweat and do all your exercises. I like the hair short. Mine has grown in.
Then it gets messy.

You legs have really got thin your looking fantastic your whole body from what you are doing to now thin girl. Your shrinking girl but that is what you want. Shrink that weight away. Right?

Your follower from Canada. I just got on yesterday we had know power for hours . Well that is what happens when we get ice storms in Canada and high winds . The trees hit the hydro poles and clean up for hydro guys for hours all over.

Wow you are having fun. Nice you have nice weather. Love you video's.

You know your daughter looks like you more and more and I have to look twice.

My golly talk about book ends you two. How is your Dad these days. Hope good.

    I needed this today. I needed to be reminded that even though my son turned 36 today, I can still go out and play. I don't have to totally grow up.
