Day 917... more snow

Saturday, March 29, 2014

I was hoping the forecast was wrong and the snow would pass us by, but no luck. It is snowing heavily. A couple inches accumulation already, with another 4-6 inches expected. Sigh. I am so ready for Spring to really get here. I saw snowdrops peeking out on our walk this morning, before the weather turned. That is a good sign, but this snow can just go away.

Still practicing restraint with my mileage on my walks. I think my left foot is improving, as it is only a dull ache today. Did a little ST with the dumbbells, plus yoga and half an hour on the rower. I feel like I am being lazy, even though I know I do more than a lot of people it is still a lot less than what I was doing. Feels weird and I am getting anxious and restless. I miss those 3-4 hour walks in the afternoon. I am getting in a lot of reading though, which is nice.

Lunch was good today. Much lighter than last week's effort. We had baked swai, stir fried vegetables, beets and lemon pound cake with strawberry applesauce for dessert. I really like the combination of the pound cake and applesauce. Very tasty.

Tomorrow looks like it will be just another day in the life. I am still working on making arrangements for our trip this summer. I bought the train tickets yesterday (Toronto to Vancouver), and just have three bus tickets to buy, and we will be pretty much set to go. I am really looking forward to this trip. Day 1,000 of my fitness streak should fall on the day before our departure if I did the math correct. That will be an exciting day with the streak at goal and the anticipation of the trip!

    Snow….UGH!!!!! We are having pouring rain and it is going to be with us for several day. I find this winter has been a tough one, but there is nothing we can do about it but carry on. I don't mind the indoor exercise, but I really feel the lack of sunshine. I am so glad you you are looking forward to your trip. Hope you will be seeing your snowdrops again soon. emoticon

    Glad you're still able to get exercise & taking care of your foot.

    Exercise indoors doesn't have the same "feel" as outdoors. You may be missing being outside as much as the walk.

    Hope Winter will finally leave. When I lived in NH, I hated March & April snowstorms. Glad you got to see some flowers before the snow started.

    The snow must be very discouraging. We have rain. Lots of rain. It is pouring right now. Snow would have set me over the edge..

    Can you get the same endorphin rush on the rower as on a walk?
