My husband and I have spent the whole weekend gardening. One minute it's sunny, and the next we're being pelted by hail. Typical Portland spring.

Both of us are exhausted from all the exercise. We cleared out a big chunk of our yard and built 2 raised beds for veggies, filled them with dirt, compost, and coir, built a flagstone walkway, edged about a million miles of lawn, mowed, rototilled, weeded, you name it. Didn't get to the gym this weekend, but sure didn't need to!

It definitely takes me a while to get used to it, but once I do I feel rarin' to go---so far my rarin' isn't going anywhere! I have a mild bug, too, so that doesn't help. How can one person's nose run this much???lol

I agree about the time change....although last night was a bit odd. I got home, the sun was shining, and I didn't know what to do with myself. Guess it will take a few days to get used to it!

Hi all! New to the SP site and I am already loving it!! Glad to see there is a local group that we can talk about other things than losing weight (although I do enjoy that!)
I hope this snow stuff leaves soon too and I am also absolutely loving the time change - getting out of work at 5 doesn't seem so late now! emoticon

Woo-hoo!
This snow stuff has got to go!!!

I actually like this time change once my inner clock gets used to it. So once the weather cooperates, I'll be enjoying the outdoors even more! I bundle up but sometimes the cold temps are worse than not exercising--so I do the exercising in the house!

I work downtown also and love walking around the city. I get off the bus in the south park blocks and walk to the north park blocks every workday. I always feel energized when I get to work. I'm thinking about doing the Shamrock walk that's coming up soon. Is anyone else?

I missed the last rally and would love to go to one! I live in SE, but work downtown--I walk every day at lunch, even in the rain. :) I'm looking forward to the Farmer's Markets opening up soon!

That is a great idea. I am on the other side of Portland, North to Scappoose, but I have been eyeing some impressive stairs, that I may plan to stop and climb now that we are heading to Day Light Savings Time! One or two trips up and down is all I'll probably make, they are in Linton, and there an awful lot of steps!

In Gresham a good outdoor meeting place is Main City Park which is right next to the Springwater Trail - you could walk all the way into Portland if you wanted!

It's heading for warmer, if not drier, weather (keep that thought!!!)

Are you thinking about how you can change or increase your exercise. Time to clear the winter doldrums ( just exactly what is a doldrum? lol).
SPRING is coming, in spite of the current temperature! What are your plans? Is there something new you can try outdoors? What about when you are stuck in the house?

Are you getting enough water and fiber? Fruits and veges should become more plentiful and less expensive(?hope, hope).

I am still thinking about another Rally-maybe 2 or 3 in different areas. It will still be after Easter (mid-April), but be thinking of leaving those Saturdays free. I want to meet y'all this time!!!
We will also definitely do some sort of walk.

Anyone in the Gresham area know of a meeting spot big enough for people and a walk. I am not familiar with that part of the area.
Also the Beaverton/Aloha/Hillsboro area-same thing.

I'll see you on the trails!!! Say "hi" because I'll probably have my neck craned up looking at the bird life!!! lol

Blessings,
Bonnie
