The last of the snow in my yard melted away April 21st. emoticon It is still quite cold here but the flowers are catching up and are blooming! Birds are back, grass is greening up and we have trimmed the trees and shrubs damaged by the snow and the trees have buds so I declare spring has officially arrived! emoticon I am waiting for the hummingbirds to return.
I am still working with the trainer. I can only afford once a week but it is the best money I have spent in a while. He nitpicks to make sure I don't damage myself as am working out. It usually takes me a day or two to "recover" after the workout, as in my muscles work hard and I feel it for a day or two. I am also putting in 2 hours of aerobic exercise a day, usually a combination of Leslie Sansone and then onto my treadmill. 6-8 miles a day, sometimes more, never less. So far the weather has only been nice enough to walk outside 2x since the snow melt. It is supposed to warm up a bit next week so I'm looking forward to getting out to walk. Enjoy your time with your family!

Everything is blooming here, so wonderful to see after a long winter. Next week is Tulip Time and my BIL & SIL are coming for the week. I've been doing well with exercise and eating healthy this week. Next week will be challenging with our guests, but it's all good.

Yes, it is my son and his family moving from Philly to St. Louis this summer. My son was offered a position at a University in or near St. Louis and it will give him the opportunity to do what he has trained for since he was a Freshman in College and has wanted since he was in High School or middle school. I am happy for him but not happy that he will be so very far away. I'm an happy that we have the technology to "visit" and see our friends and loved ones via the internet. We already skype and "facetime" with the kids between visits. I can play games with them via the internet as well. We'll still visit with them, of course but we are not retired and have no immediate plans to do so and St. louis is more than a weekend trip away. Anyways, it is now April 19th and my yard is still not snow free but the spring flowers are rapidly making up for lost time. The birds have returned as have the spring "peepers". Life is beautiful. I've done my first "outside" walk this year and today it hit 70F and we went to my daughters home and helped her build a swing set for her little one. He is nearly 2.5 years old already and more than 3 feet tall. His dad is 6 foot 6 and my daughter is close to 5ft 10 so no surprise that their son would be tall. I am enjoying the warmer weather.

emoticon It sounds like spring is finally going to happen for you, Patty! It's beautiful in west Michigan, everything is starting to bloom. So now I have lots of garden clean-up to do. emoticon We spent the weekend in Ohio celebrating our SIL's 80th birthday. Fun but not a healthy weekend. I'm still exercising indoors because it's still pretty cool in the mornings. If I don't get the exercise in after breakfast, odds are it won't happen.

Patty, are your Philly kids moving to the Midwest?

BIG WEEKEND! This is the first weekend in 12 weeks when it DID NOT SNOW!!!! emoticon There is still snow in my yard and the shrubs and my rhododendron are still partially buried under snow piles, but no more snow was added to the piles this weekend. A foreshadowing of things to come? I say yes! Bring on warmth. I am ready, along with probably just about everyone else in my state, except perhaps owners of the ski industry. They had a pretty good run this year!

We are still waiting for spring, but the snow continues to melt away. The Boston Marathon is set to occur soon and I wonder how the course for that will be. The roads where I live are still icy and wet from the snow melt and cold but I know Boston has been working to get everything cleaned up. I can't imagine trying to train for this marathon. I suppose that is what treadmills are for. Where I live does seem to have hit a "jackpot" for snow. Most of the snow where my daughter lives (about 25 miles away as the "crow flies") has melted away. Her yard is clear and she is ready to start gardening. I still have some pretty big snow piles and it snowed and sleeted a bit yesterday. Today it is just a cold, damp day. We may get some sun and warmth a bit later in this weekend. I am looking forward to that. I did go for a short walk with my DH and ended up with cold, wet sneakers. Still, I would take this weather any day in comparison to what is in the mid part of our country. My son will be moving to St. Louis this summer and I see those severe storms heading in that direction a lot. During my cross country summer travels I worried about those storms a lot...we kept a "weather eye to the sky" and drove out of the path of those storms as much as we could. We did come a little too close for comfort of times in Michigan, MO, Iowa and the Dakota's and the year I lived in Kansas was terrifying. I'll take my snow anyday.

We had lots of rain and storms roll through yesterday, creeks are overflowing. Now it's windy. I'm still exercising indoors, priming an old set of wooden patio chairs I bought last year, keeping my pansies going until I have time to plant them. We're going to a surprise 80th birthday party for our SIL in Ohio tomorrow. I'm not sure how I'm going to fit exercise in with that going on, but I hope the weather will be decent so I can at least walk around the parking lot a few times or climb some stairs.

snow, yep though the piles are going down and it is raining today so it will help to get rid of more of the snow on the ground. I DO have purple crocus now and I can (obviously) see them, at last.

Do you still have snow, Patty?

I'm working on cleaning out the flower beds. It's always exciting to see the leaves poking through the dirt. I'm still walking with Leslie instead of taking neighborhood walks. It takes awhile for Michigan to warm up with the wind coming from the Lake. We had a fantastic Easter and I'm enjoying watchiing the finches, mourning doves and now woodpeckers come by to feed. We're having great fun this spring, going to Ohio to be part of the surprise 80th birthday party for our SIL.

More snow this weekend....ugh. There has been a lot of snow melt and I am estimating that right now, we have 6-14 inches left in most of my yard. The roof is no longer leaking!!!! We have had some above freezing days which contributed to the snow melt. The snow compacts during the day and freezes at night so I can walk on top of the snow now. It is that hard and compact! I am looking forward to the day when I can see the shoots of the spring flowers. Generally, by this time of the year, we have crocus and other early spring bulb flowers out. Maybe they are struggling to emerge from under the blanket of snow. My daughter who lives nearer to the coast than I do says most of her snow has melted with the exceptions of the piles where the snow was dumped during the "big dig outs". The snow piles here are still nearly 3 feet high in most places and a whole lot higher where the snow was dumped by the shopping centers clearing the lots and where the town dumped the snow in an effort to clear the roads. I'm betting on snow remaining on the ground through mid April. We'll see.

Our snow is gone from our yard. There are still some "brown mountains" around town and where the plows took advantage of neutral space. I spotted daffodils starting to come up and other green things are beginning to peek through. I need to clean up my flower beds, but the ground is still mushy.

I went for a neighborhood walk yesterday - COLD. Not doing that again until the temperature improves. The Lake causes strong breezes and that doesn't feel good right now. emoticon Patty, walking with Leslie is always good, she's always a cheerful companion!

I can't believe your youngest has been out of school for five years! Yikes, I feel old. emoticon Oops, washer stopped, gotta go. Have a great evening!

Well, the sun has been going to work on the snow piles and they have decreased quite a bit. We are getting a couple of new inches on top tonight, but it is now officially spring. We even have some bare patches of dormant grass visible. I cringe when I look at my shrubs in the front yard. What I can see of them suggests I may have to do some major pruning or remove them. They are pretty flat under all the snow. We still have about 2 feet or more of snow in most places of my yard but that is an improvement. I put out my bird feeder and the birds are around.but I haven't seen them at the feeder yet. Doing a few hours on Saturday volunteering at the High School in my town. It's a fundraiser for the HS Band programs in town. I've been volunteering as a band parent since my oldest (now 33) joined the band in 5th grade. All 4 of my kids were band members. My youngest graduated 5 years ago and I still work that "home show" at the high school. My daughter-in-law now coaches a group that performs at the show so I get to cheer on her group, even if is a group from a competing high School. Busy day ahead. I wish I could get my walks outside as you do, Vikki, but there is still just too much snow and no safe way to do so. I'll keep putting in my miles on the treadmill or with my Leslie Sansone programs.

I've been visiting with my brother-in-law and family in South Carolina! 80 degrees today. Beautiful! We've been here since Saturday evening and the weather has been warmer each day. We have to start our drive back north tomorrow and will stopping with my son and his family in PA, where it is not quite so warm, but warmer than it will be when I return home on Monday. My daughter tells me it has been warm (40-50) in Massachusetts (home) but the weather will return to ice and snow by Friday. Looks like the weather will be decent for our drive home (as in dry), but cold. It's ok because I know that spring is just a few days away.

We are in the 40s with bright sunshine this week. The snow is slowly melting away and I can actually see some of my bushes again, poor babies. We're both down with bad colds, boo hiss for the timing, but it's all good. Getting some exercise in every day and sleeping a lot.

We had some snow and rain last night but it warmed up nicely so there was some melting. More snow expected tomorrow. Looks like we might be breaking all records for total snow this season. We only need a couple more inches to do it, so have at it!

Yup, welcome to March! It feels warm to us and it's still below 30, but the sun is bright and the sky is so clear. Maybe it's wishful thinking. We have had a dusting of snow, nothing to speak of. The streets are still encased in snow/ice and the piles of snow/ice are so high, I don't feel comfortable walking outside. People aren't too careful about whipping around curves here.

I have my gardening books to encourage me in addition to the bright sunshine. Sure hope it stays for awhile!

It's snowing again tonight....another 4-8 inches are likely and more winter weather on the way midweek. BUT, it is the first day of March and spring will eventually , well, spring. It is one of the reasons I love living in New England. There is a predictability that is true wherever you live, but I have always lived in New England and have grown accustomed to how the season will present themselves here, in my little corner of the planet. It is comforting and no matter how unpredictable or chaotic the rest of my life may be, I can count on the seasons to always "do their things". SO, welcome March.

I know spring is coming and I have apparently lived long enough to actually sense the changes in the angle of the sun as spring approaches. I am also developing a serious problem judging warm temps I think. It has been so outrageously cold and snowy or cloudy this winter that today I looked out and saw sun....bright blue skies and sunshine. I stepped out on my porch and decided it was warm and took the dog for a 20 minute slide through the snow paths we dug for him in my back yard. I have to put him on a leash because the snow is over the 4 fence surrounding the yard and he could just walk over the fence if he could get up to the top of the snow. He works hard at it but so far, he just slides down. Anyways, I thought it was warm enough that I took him out without bothering to wear my jacket, hat or gloves and just turned my face up into the sun and basked. When i went back inside, I thought I'd see how warm it was.....feeling happy that the first warm day had arrived. It was 26 degrees farenheight. My internal temperature gauge is not working too well or i am just too accustomed to coming in feeling like I was encased in an ice cube and today (yesterday now as it is past midnight as i write this) was perfect.
Update for the weather for today (Saturday)........wait for it........more snow! Well, the illusion of spring was fun while it lasted. Just a nuisance snow this time.....4 or 5 inches. Piece of cake. emoticon

Hang in there! I saw the official sign of spring - gardening and landscaping merchandise set up at our local store! This encouraging note is sponsored by the retailers who put Christmas decorations in September! emoticon

Really, spring is coming. We had a nasty storm on Tuesday (nothing like what the Northeast has endured), but it's been sunny and decent since. I'm not going for walks outside yet, but I'm encouraged.

just a little snow from this last storm....3 or 4 inches. Light, fluffy stuff. It actually made walking a bit easier as the snow covered up the ice and created a bit of traction for walking. Still doing my exercise indoors because it is just too cold outside, but it is pretty and the roof didn't leak today. Progress. emoticon

emoticon AAAAAANNNNNNNDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD more snow tonight! Whoopie! Who'd have thunk it??????

My husband is going skiing tomorrow so I guess he'll appreciate the snow. It will put a nice powdery surface on the hard packed snow we have now. The snow, sleet and freezing rain we got the other night has left a nice hard crusty coating of ice in the several feet of snow on the ground and my walkways and driveways. My husband took a picture of the ice dam on our roof. It is about 8 or more inches thick. No wonder the roof leaks. It wasn't leaking today though. I guess the last shoveling my husband did is still helping.

Ugh on the leaks and ice and snow. Your area is just snake-bitten this winter, Patty. We're mostly just COLD. I'm walking with Leslie as well plus I discovered Jessica Smith who does dance walking. I enjoy both of them, different styles but they get the job done. emoticon

AND it is snowing again tonight, although it will be changing over to freezing rain , sleet and rain and then freezing solid! I think I would have preferred all snow. We cleared up the driveway, walkways and drains as best we could. There is no where to put the snow at this point. It was "warm" today, 20's(farenheight). My husband was up on the roof for the 5th time since mid-January shoveling off the snow. We have water coming in from ice dams and a bucket with plastic sheeting over the main leak site to try to direct the water into the bucket. The water has stopped for now and hopefully the roof will hold when the rain, snow and ice come in overnight and into tomorrow. Lots of roofs have failed across this part of the state but most have not...yet. I think mine will hold or I would be holed up in a hotel overnight. emoticon Spring is coming. Leslie Sansone is my best friend now.

Nice to "see" you Vikki. Hope all is well with you.

I've thought about you Patty with that relentless snow in Boston. We're having a "mild" winter for us - only 60+ inches of snow but the cold is epic. I'm walking with Leslie and Jessica Smith these days. emoticon

And looking through gardening books from the library! emoticon

emoticon thank you. We had a heat wave today. Got up to 20 degrees Farenheight. I know that is below freezing but after the weather we've been having, it felt balmy. I took the dog out and didn't bother with gloves, hat or jacket and I was fine. Spring is soon to arrive and the angle of the sun is beginning to have that springlike feel. We have more snow coming tomorrow and over the weekend, but it was nice today.

I was out with the shovel again, today. It just keeps snowing. Only about 3 or 4 inches today but it had to be moved because more snow is on the way. I'm walking shovels full of snow down to where I can toss it on a lower snow bank. My shoulders are talking to me now, in a not friendly tone.

Remember all the snow we had LAST winter?? I usually enjoy shoveling snow & especially b/c I can get fitness credit for it, in the tracker. But, when it gets to the part where the snow drifts are higher than me.....that's when my shoulders start hitting the "ouch" factor. Last year, when that happened, that's when I finally told DH I was done shoveling. Be careful, out there & don't hurt yourself. I used to work myself into much pain (that takes months to heal). So, I try to pace myself, now. This year, we have moved away from the snow. The only thing I'm missing from it is the fitness minutes. emoticon

There was one for snow shoveling so I used it, then I got to use it again. The snow in my yard is well over three feet deep. The piles are so high that I struggle to dump the snow up on the top and end up carrying shovel fulls in an effort to find a lower location that I can dump the snow. Spring is coming.....soon..... emoticon More snow is on the way tomorrow, but only 3 inches. The weekend storm dumped nearly 20 so I won't complain much about a measley 3 inch storm and NO WIND!!!!!!!!!!

That sounds like hardwork, Gemstone. Not sure what exercise category, but it should def be worth something in the fitness tracking!! I know there's one for "heavy cleaning". Maybe there is one for "shoveling" ?? I'm curious to know what category you found in the tracker, for it. I love to be able to track in the fitness tracker. It was always a great motivator for me in shoveling snow!!!! emoticon

Didn't have to wait long and now the ice dams have caused my roof to leak. How many exercise points do you think clearing an ice dam on the roof and cleaning up the mess is worth? Gotta get something good out of this. emoticon

Here's a silly something for ya! I'm always taking the dog on short walks. Today, we were out there, as usual. There was a brief moment, where the pup seemed to be lagging behind...almost stepping on my heals. I wondered what could be wrong. Turns out, we were walking past a new & temporary road sign. She knew it didn't belong there & it made her nervous. She is always doing something silly, or some such thing like that. Once we got past the sign, everything with her was fine again. She made sure to "tell" DH all about it, when we got home. She has a way of being very expressive, even without actual words.

Back from vacation....didn't gain any weight, but didn't lose much either. On the plus side, i have most certainly gained muscle and lost inches so all is well. I put in a lot of miles while on vacation.

I'm getting kind of lonely here talking to myself. Continuing to increase my activity levels and I'm starting to run again, which is wonderful. My shoulder continues to strengthen but is still fairly unstable, but improving and for the most part, I have almost 100% of the mobility I had before my accident back so I am very, very happy. emoticon

lovin my nike sports band. It works well and is still a fun new toy. The fact that it is on my wrist draws my attention to it and I love watching what I do (activity) make the numbers rise on the band. Fun, fun, fun!

ladeeda---I got a Nike sports band and I am having a lot of fun racking up the points (and miles) and burning off the fuel (and calories). It's a fun little toy. How are you all doing this summer? I assume you are all keeping busy with your outdoor activities but if you have a few moments, say "hey".

I do love my endorphins! Pretty sticky and warm today but I got some exercise (activity) in so I'm feeling tired but happy. Personal training in the morning and then I did a 1 hour aerobic DVD with my daughter in the afternoon...one of Leslie Sansone's WATP programs...a 5 miler. I'm already thinking about tomorrow. It's going to be a hot and sticky day so I will probably try to work out early in the day.

Spent the weekend at Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Biked about 50 miles at a pretty fast pace over the two days we were there. My backside is sore, but my body feels great! I will say again, I love my endorphins!

Beautiful day here today. Everyone here has been very quiet of late...me included. Hope you are all out and about, staying active and reaping the rewards of a more active life. My shoulder is healed enough that I have been able to return to most of my pre-accident activities and my endorphins are flying! Happy day everyone!

Your DD is sweet...and so are the donuts....unfortunately. Good luck! I still have trouble resisting donuts and other sweets. I usually do resist them, but my motivation is related to diabetes and not weight loss motivation. I wish it were....

Hi Patty, we're having weird weather day today. Thunderstorms to start the day, followed by wind, followed by plunging temperatures...and we might have snow before the day is over! I exercised by cleaning the house (wimp). No wonder you're smiling between grandchild time and a good walk today! emoticon So glad you're having a good day! I am too, just missing out on the outdoor walk.

Beautiful day today so I put the little one in the stroller and we went for a "stroll". My spark tracker says I walked 7.6 miles but I know for a fact that is not correct. 5 miles, maybe even 5.5 but certainly not more than that. The tracker counts steps so I guess stepwise I did enough steps for the 7.6. I would have gone further but the angle of the sun changed and it was right on the tender skin of my tiny buddy and I did not want him to get his first sun burn. It was a much easier walk on the way from my home than on the way back. On the way oging from my home the wind was at my back but on the return trip I had a headwind and a stoller top billowing so I guess I got some muscle building too. I really had to work to push the stroller up the hill with the 28 lb. child and the wind working against me. Great walk, wonderful day...my endorphins are here so I am emoticon emoticon emoticon . I love my endorphins.

Hey there, Patty, it's good to hear how you're doing with your "killer" trainer! I think you're doing pretty well to survive 50 minutes! It IS hard to build back our endurance. I've found that I have to fight back for it even after a few days, and you've had a long struggle. I'm a emoticon right now with my walking pace, and it's frustrating for sure. Here's to New Beginnings! emoticon Never give up, never surrender! emoticon

I think my personal trainer is tying to kill me! emoticon I haven't been able to do the entire hour yet. emoticon but I am up to making through 50 minutes before I feel like I am going to lose everything I ate for the past year. I need to build my endurance for sure. I lost a lot of it during the time I was "nursing" my rotator cuff. You lose a lot during a year and a half hiatus....but the "loss" is not weight, it is fitness. I am trying to rebuild the endurance but it is really hard. I want to be where I was a year and a half ago and I am just not able to do it. It makes me sad but mostly mad and, I will admit somewhat discouraging. I have to keep my eye on the "prize" (me) and take baby steps, one inch, one foot, one mile at a time. I am up to 4 miles but it is at 3.4mph. I had been able to do 10+ at 4-4.5 mph before. Sigh. Here's to "new" beginnings....sort of.

Hi everyone! It's cold and breezy here! No snow melt coming for us for awhile. Today I did a cardio video and rode my stationary bike, then picked up some groceries. Nothing major planned for the rest of the day, we're having a large salad and the remaining split pea soup for dinner before heading out for choir practice.

We've had a couple of warm days (cold nights) so the snow is melting during the day and what doesn't dry becomes ice so I hear you about walking outside. There are no sidewalks near me so walking is on the road and that is not something I will do with the snow melt, puddles and icy patches so it's indoor workouts for me. Good luck with the 5K next month.

We still have a lot of ice on our sidewalks, so going out for a walk is a challenge. I haven't been on very many walks this winter. I feel bad about that. But, I've shoveled tons of snow, enough to make my shoulders painful! I finally had to swear off of the shoveling, and we've finally had breaks from the large snowfall amounts.

I'm scheduled to walk a 5K next month. I'm excited about that! Hoping I can get outside more often between now & then.

I don't know that we really had a mini heat wave, it got up to 40 in the middle of the night on Thursday and the temperatures have plummeted again to the 20's. We had some weird weather with heavy snow, heavy rain, both, strong winds. I hope you didn't get that mess! I'm just glad the sun is out with some blue sky today, I don't like wind except when sailing. emoticon

That PT guy is really working you hard! Can you do anything to help the soreness, like epsom salt bath or an aspirin? I haven't had to deal with toddlers in awhile, but I helped in our church nursery on Thursday and pulled and ran with two pre-schoolers. THAT was aerobic for me! emoticon They're a lot of fun though so I didn't mind..although I didn't mind when their mommies came for them either! emoticon

I'm doing well with my nutrition this week and I've worked hard at exercise every day. Leslie has been my best friend with the crazy weather! I can tell I'm losing some inches and I'm very thankful for that!

We had a mini "heat wave" today. It was above freezing. Cold front came through so now what melted is freezing over and more snow expected late this weekend. Probably your storm heading East, Vikki.
Personal trainer workout on Tuesday has left me sore so I guess he is having me work muscles that have needed working. I told him my goal was to build muscle, strengthen the core and improve balance. The hour goes fast. I just wish I wasn't so sore the rest of the week because it is hard to work out at home when I hurt. My workout during the week will just have to be chasing the child around. He's getting smarter than my baby proofing so I have to keep adjusting and chasing. Toddlers sure do move a lot!!!

We had two days of sun, now we're having two days of snow, rain, wind, repeat. It's yucky outside! I walked five miles with Leslie this morning and went on a milk run afterwards. That was enough to convince me to stay inside! I'm doing laundry and reading for the rest of the day. Encore split pea soup for dinner with a side salad and maybe my multi-grain bread.

Wow what a storm and what a mess, Patty! I'm glad you kept an eye on your sweetie; I do the same when mine shovels. Toddlers are their own special joy, aren't they. All of our grands are out of that stage, and amazingly they still like to play with us. emoticon

The play wasn't that great, but we had a good time. Yesterday we cross country skied, I wore myself out (it's only the fourth time I've tried it), and today I'm still Mighty Thor. Beautiful woods to ski through. We may go tomorrow as well while the temperatures are cold. We're supposed to reach the 40's by Thursday!

We are getting a one day reprieve from the snow but another winter storm is on the way for this weekend. This last storm ended with freezing rain on top of the slush and snow. The snow blower couldn't handle it. My DH ended up shoveling the snow and yeah, it is "heart attack" snow. He took a lot of breaks...I was watching him. He didn't want anyone to come out to help him so I went out and talked to him until he was done. Fortunately it was only about 4 inches deep but it was 4 inches of slush. The stuff was heavy. I know because I was shoveling it when it was only about 3 inches of slush. My son had also gone out to shovel as well. Nasty stuff. I am sore today but I was still able to keep up with the toddler all day. The older he gets, the more tricks he learns. emoticon

We have new snow today, just a little, like an inch. I walked a mile with Leslie before doing a circuit/ST video. I never got around to making vegetable broth, so I'm doing that now and some laundry. My sweetie completed our federal tax return this morning and we're thrilled that we don't owe for a change. I'm taking it easy today, just reading and catching up with SP. Tonight we're going to Hope College's drama department's play called "Middletown". Have no idea about the plot, my sweetie just thought it would be a nice Valentine celebration and we like supporting Hope as much as we can. Tomorrow looks like a good day to go cross country skiing for exercise before the big thaw begins next week.

I hope your snow storm is over, Patty, and your sweetie has dug out the driveway. We don't have a snow blower, but our neighbor does and we are SO thankful he runs it over to our driveway when he does his own. I guess that's the advantage of being "older" in this neighborhood! We usually have light weight snow, but that stuff you'all have is the so-called "heart attack" stuff. Not fun to deal with at all.

I never got the "big soreness" I expected from the personal trainer session afterall so that was a very pleasant surprise. The kitchen sink was a reference to the weather predicted which is somewhat worse than predicted in my area. We have snow, ice, freezing rain and just plain rain just to slush it all up. I tried to shovel my driveway and I gave up. The stuff was still falling and all I was doing was moving slush and leaving an underlayment of ice. I am majorly skittish about falling now. I am not totally healed with the shoulder after a year and half. I don't want to fall again. My DH has a snowblower and hopefully he'll be able to move the stuff. The snowblower doesn't really work great with the slush, it tends to clog up the chute. I got my exercise in today shovelling for an hour and a part.

Wow, Patty, that was some PT session! I hope you're feeling better today. Do the snow, rain, kitchen sink and animals all relate to your weather? emoticon

Well, I didn't do well nutritionally yesterday, but that's just one day. Today it's SUNNY, no snow, and 26! Heat wave! emoticon I have sour dough bread dough rising and just finished a combination of stationary bike/walk with Leslie/low impact aerobics with Kathy Smith. Good grief, it's a good thing I'm retired. However, I need to keep surprising my body so that I can keep making progress towards a healthy weight again. Nothing much planned today other than the bread and making vegetable broth for split pea soup tomorrow. Since I overdid with the calories yesterday, we're having a BIG salad and leftover steak for dinner.

I went to the personal trainer yesterday and I am less sore than I thought I would be. I do tend to feel it more two days after I over exert myself so I'll see how I do. I know the workout was intense. I had to stop 10 minutes before the end of my hour with the trainer because I felt nauseous. That was a first. I was relaxed though. Snow, rain, the kitchen sink and cats and dogs tomorrow.

We not only have no new snow, but the sun is out! emoticon Today is pretty full for me so I walked a mile with Leslie and then did circuit training with Kathy Smith this morning, then got a badly needed haircut. This afternoon I get to help with my church's care closet, we'll have dinner at church and then choir afterwards. Olympics afterwards! emoticon

Thanks, it feels great to be back!

The snow only turns brown when it starts to melt, which means it has to be warm enough to melt...which it isn't here! emoticon I have to agree about the Olympics cross country skiing, it looked like murder to us when we watched it! You are supposed to have that gliding, sprinting form to optimize your skiing, but I'm still doing what my instructor calls the piston style, which is probably related to the "I'm scared of falling" style. emoticon

I walked with Leslie this morning and I have post-vacation laundry to get done, just in general getting back into the swing of life. Fortunately, I planned our meals before we left on vacation so we're good to go this week. Have a great day, everyone!

I thought we all got the dirty brown snow after the plows and clean-up comes through. I used to think that I'd like to try cross-country skiing but after watching the the cross country ski "marathon" race today I'm not so sure anymore. Ah well, snowing here again tonight, but not a big snow this time. Just enough to make for a slippery commute tomorrow morning. I'm off to bed. Glad you had a great vacation Vicki and welcome home. emoticon

Well, I'm back in the Frozen North after two weeks in Florida and one in Virginia/Washington DC. We have at least two to three feet of new snow since we left in the middle of January, but it's very pretty, not dirty or brown like in Virginia. We had a great time, we're very happy to be back and my stationary bike and my Leslie Sansome DVD will keep me active until we can fit in a day cross country skiing.

Have a great day! emoticon

Good Morning everyone. After a sloppy day yesterday, today the sun is shining and reflecting off the fresh cover of ice and snow. It's quite pretty. I was unable to go for my personal training this week due to circumstances beyond my control....(the weather). I was also unable to post anything to this teams threads other than this one yesterday early in the day. For some reason, none of the "reply" buttons would work. I could post on other areas of SparkPeople just fine...my block, spins, etc. I just could not post specifically to this team. I contacted support and now it is working find. Weird. Have a great day!

My dog HATES cold weather. He asks to go out but as soon as the blast of cold air hits him, he backs up and looks at me as if to say, "are you nuts? It's cold out there, I was just kidding with the whole begging to go out thing". It's pretty funny actually. He's a cheagle (beagle/chihuahua) and he is pretty intolerant of the cold. He doesn't particularly like very hot weather either.

I didn't get much exercise at all yesterday, but today we spent 3 hours riding recumbent tricycles and it was fun and I ache in new areas! emoticon still doing well with nutrition although sodium has been a problem because we've eating out a lot.

Big snowstorm today to be followed by another blast of the polar vortex. We have about 10 inches on the ground so far and it is supposed to really ramp up overnight. Walked with Leslie today so i got my miles in at least.

Hey, Patty! What a fun trip! We're in FL right now - it's cold but warmer than west Michigan right now. Took a couple of walks already, getting ready to go bicycling. Good for you and no weight gain! I'm hoping for weight loss in spite of my in-laws LOL! Beautiful sunshine here, loving the long daylight hours. Got go! emoticon

Hello all! Seems like I picked the right time to go on a cruise! We left home the day before the blizzard hit New England and were sailing towards the British Virgin Islands while you were all freezing in the States. BRRRRR.....we saw the reports on the weather on the international newsfeeds on the ship. We just returned home today so I've been catching up on news and emails. We had no phone or internet service while on the cruise so it will take me a bit of time to catch up on everything. I did get in a lot of walking so my weight did not increase...it didn't decrease either. Happy New year!
