It's been a great weekend so far! Yesterday, I went snow shoeing on the lake, and today I went cross-country skiing. The place we went was a lot hillier than the place I went last time, so I KNOW I got a great workout!

I've been struggling a bit lately, which is - sad to say - not outside the norm for me when it gets cold.
I like being outside, and I NEED to be active. Yes, need. I go stir crazy when I can't get in a walk or run pretty much every day,... Read more
