Spring in my yard equals Spring in my step

I am so happy spring is finally making a full week appearance here in lovely Colorado. We have had lots and lots of snow since Valentine's Day and some of it has been that sloppy wet amazing snow that leaves us laughing at how fast it melts. My parents are major farmers and ranchers and this late snow has been a tremendous blessing for those folks. They are enjoying green grass after an early winter that left us worrying and most cities pondering watering restrictions. BUT, the sprinkler system is still not turned on and we are happy happy happy about that $$ saved.
The warmer days also mean my kiddos and dogs are in the backyard more and by default, I spend extra time walking around the yard kicking a soccer ball, pushing on the swing and saving them from the monkey bars. All of that adds up to extra calories and that is great news.
The last week has been an exercise slump for me. I usually groan about the 5 am alarm, but get up anyway and get in my workout. (I use DVD's in the morning or else my days consume my intentions!!!) but the last week I couldnt make it happen. I finally decided that I am sick of the same DVD's and hopped on to Amazon. I ordered up three new titles by Leslie and the scary Jillian Michaels. AND, I made myself get up and out of bed this morning.
NOW, I am gonna get my husband on that mile walk after lunch to complete the overhaul of his life. I would like to see him get off his blood pressure meds by the time his birthday rolls around in March.
Have a wonderful weel!!!
