mother nature... i shake my fist at you!

Monday, March 18, 2013

seriously... i have lived in chicago long enough that I should know better than to expect things to warm up once march gets here. But there is just something magical about Springing Forward and finally having some daylight once I get home from work that just makes me want to get OUTSIDE! I want to go on hikes and long walks and jogging etc. I do not want to do an indoor workout. WANT. OUT. SIDE.

of course... it's still cold and miserable outside. last week after work I took the dog out for 2 walks about 2 miles each. It was COLD and WINDY and BLAH... but we both went anyway. Yesterday... the sun came out and I dragged the dog and the husband for a hike. It was windy and miserable... despite the sun. UGH! why can't mother nature cooperate!?!?!

No change in weight this last week. I had some mishaps and some illness and didn't get my 10,000 steps in at all, any day. BOO to that. I'm back on it this week.

19 days from vacation... at least I know that there will be warmth in the carribean!

    The break to Vegas was so nice with temps in the upper 80's. the only down side is that I had to come home to this stupid 15 degree morning. Spring will be here soon, at least it is on the calendar :)

    Yes, you have the wonderful Caribbean sunshine to look forward to. I don't understand how you cold weather folks do it, anything less than 50 sends me fleeing indoors! Spring will really be here this week, I hope the weather there reflects it soon!
