Slight change of plans...


Tuesday, February 19, 2013

The weather sucked today. It started out nice enough with blue skies and sunshine, but all that changed while I was walking the dog this morning. First it started raining, then sleeting, then flat out snowing. This did not please Cooper, but we still walked 3.6 miles in that crud. When I took him out this afternoon it was very windy and the snow was hard little pellets that stung when they blew in my face. Poor Cooper was a trooper and walked the whole 3.2 mile loop. I was surprised. I fully expected to have to carry him part of the way. Then on his short night time walk it was icy and windy. I did not go to the gym today. It occurred to me that I bought the rower for a reason. So, I put in 50 minutes on the rower. It doesn't burn as many calories as the elliptical, but it gives my joints a break as it is a completely different motion than either the elliptical or the treadmill. However, I am going to try and get to the gym for a short while tomorrow afternoon. I won't feel right if I don't go for at least a little while. I should have an hour free, so I will make the attempt.

I made a big pot of chili this evening. It just seemed like the right weather for chili. I made enough for dinner for tonight and probably most of the rest of the week too. This cold and snow is supposed to hang around for a little while, so I will appreciate the hot chili, especially if all I have to do is reheat it.

    I made chili last week and refried bean soup yesterday. Yup, it's officially soup weather! Stay warm.
