So sorry to hear about your foot Kathy. Sorry you are going to miss some of your races. :-(

Yes, this winter really piled on the snow in the mountains. Seeing the falls is a one in the lifetime event for me!

As you probably noticed I am not on SparkPeople very much, the site is not playing nice with my pc, of course most aren't probably time for a new one.

I hope everyone is doing well.

When you guys are ready to walk out in the wild let me know I will try and join you, however I am in a training program so it might be hard for me, but I will if I can. Barb you might want to contact me through FB.

Well I am glad everyone survive this winter and I for one don't want another like it for a very long time.

Looks like I need to do a road trip to shoshone falls and 1000 springs or as we have started calling it the under 100 springs, maybe this winter has help bring some of the old ones back. Of course if I drive that far I might have to go on down to JP to have a little fun. Thanks for sharing the pictures that is more water going over the falls then I have seen in a very long time.


2017 is not starting out well. Started with right leg injury, it is almost healed I can run on it as long as it is tape up well. Now I have to have a growth removed on my left foot. Doctor said it would be an open would for 3 to 5 weeks, so I am putting it off because I am going to run Zions 1/2 marathon on April 1st. I ran a half last weekend, the Shamrock Shuffle, the foot was ok the first 7 miles. I just have to deal with it, got to schedule the foot fix around the races I have paid for I will miss a few I wanted to do but such is life.


Ok everyone take care and enjoy this really nice weather while it last.

I've never camped there, but I've been to the indoor pool. Awfully warm in the summer, but I bet it's perfect at this time of year. You should totally book it!!!

Hi Barb, yes the spring were running. You are so lucky to be from that area. I love it so much!

We are going to call about the tour on Monday. We want to go on the scenic tour (only $30)and stay in the resort (full hook-ups and only $35) in our camping trailer. They also have an indoor thermal pool. So excited!

For anyone thinking about visiting Shoshone Falls here is a picture from yesterday. Can you see the people on the platform on the right? Now this is a heck of a lot of water!!!

Are the springs running too? I remember growing up there and driving by when they were full. Soooo pretty! I hope you get to take the cruise too!

I sat outside for about 10 minutes, reading my book. Had planned to sit more, but it was later than I thought...danged time change!

Did you see the forecast? 70' on Tuesday!!!! Woot!!!

Hope to get outside tomorrow and do some clean up on my side yard. The Shoshone Falls were wonderful Yesterday. Lots of families had the same idea and we were lucky enough to get a parking spot!

We took the scenic route home and went through Hagerman and the 1,000 Springs area. Hope to be able to book a boat trip through 1,000 Springs Tours on their 52' feet Catamaran Cruiser. It is on my bucket list! :-)

So glad you got an outside walk to the library Barb! Woohoo!

The walk to the library was nice. Not quite as warm as I'd hoped, but certainly doable! I even picked up some aluminum cans on my way. Gonna get rich!! LOL!

We have all our gear ready to make a trip to Shoshone Falls tomorrow. They are flowing! So should be a good photo opportunity. We've just been waiting for the rain to stop.

Enjoy your walk to the library tomorrow Barb, it is so nice to get out!

The Greenbelt is under water?!?!? That ain't right! LOL! The mall might be a better place to walk for now.

Kelli, I liked Weight Watcher's when I tried it. It gave me the structure I needed/wanted. I might still be going there if I hadn't started my new shift at work. I couldn't go to my favorite meetings and never found another meeting I liked as much.

Christine, did you have the snow today? So tired of the snow. And the cold. Sigh.

Hi Everyone,

I think I am finally getting myself back on track, and feeling so much better. I broke down and signed up for weight watchers and just started my 3rd week. The weight is starting to come off. And I have been going to the gym again. It feels so good to take some action.

I am up for a mall walk or outside. Just let me know the time and I will try to be there.

Hi Kelli, good to see you!

Barb most of the greenbelt is under water right now. I suppose you guys could meet at the mall?

Yeah I have been marching too. Still not walking outside with DH. Still a bit on the chilly, rainy side. Dang!

That sounds like fun! I walked to get pizza for dinner for tonight, so I got a few steps in. Only about halfway to my goal. I'll be marching in place later.

My baby boy turned 18 today. Amazing how they can age when we don't age at all. LOL!

Tomorrow, I will be going downtown and meeting some friends for lunch. We planned to do this earlier, but the snowpocolypse kept us from leaving the house. So glad the weather has improved!

I've had more than a few clients with falls on the ice. Glad you're on the mend, and I agree, the elliptical can be mind-numbing, but it's a fantastic rehab treatment for what you've described...especially make sure you're icing right after a session.

39 days until Spring ladies! Bring it!!

Be well,

Kathy, you really did do a number on yourself! I'm glad you're on the mend.

Christine, you have definitely named the elliptical appropriately!! LOL!

Loving this warmer weather!! I accidentally left my coat at the gym yesterday since I didn't need it when I left! Of course, I did go back for it since I still need it in the morning. I do so prefer the rain to the snow.

I am on the mend, I am going to test it out tomorrow. I have a race Saturday and I may not be able to participate.

I hurt the foot, ankle and shin. I ice it 4 to 5 times a day. I have kt taped it which has helped a lot. Now on top of the KT tape I am wrapping it the pain is almost gone. I haven't ran since I foolishly tried to run the Freeze Out Challenge. Doctor approved the elliptical and I have really come to hate that piece of equipment.

Now on the bright side the snow we received this morning did not hang around long. And the 4 foot mounds of snow on the side of my drive are down to two feet. I see some bare ground on my lawn and one of the early spring flowers has poke it head up, No flowers yet but greenery so it is a sure sign of spring is coming our way. I am liking the 40 degree weather.

I hope all is well with everyone,
take care and stay dry and warm.

Yippee!! On both the meatless meals and the outdoor walk. I drove to the library today and kept an eye on the sidewalks between here and there. There was a huge length of sidewalks that are still completely covered. Maybe next week they will be cleared enough for an outside walk.

I'll go out for dinner again...I just won't eat so much!

It was a Mexican restaurant where I ate too much! I like Cafe Ole, El Matador (at The Village), and El Gallo Giro (now Enrique's) in Kuna. There are a lot of great Mexican restaurants around here!

But going out for dinner is so much fun! I think after I get my blood work done on the 9th I will go out to eat too. I could really go for some Mexican Food.

Anyone know a good place?

I am, thanks! emoticon Got laundry done and read for a little bit. Went out with DH and ate too much at dinner. Definitely not doing that again anytime soon!

Congrats on the streak Christine!! I love stuff that motivates me to be healthy even when I don't wanna!! LOL!

Tia, I'm sorry you're having allergy issues. I hope the inversion clears soon so you can feel better. Just hope it clears without a snow storm!

Kelli, you were a hero?!? That's so awesome!!

I'm getting my heater fixed next weekend. After I run my errands on Friday, I'll take my baby to my friend to get it fixed. I think he forgot to order the parts, so they won't be in until next week. Not a big deal...at least they've been ordered now!!

Hey there!

I'm doing good - got myself up and to the gym at 6 this morning - woot! So, after work today, the afternoon is mine!

Is anyone else having allergy issues? I'm blaming the inversion emoticon

Barb, what a terrible time of year to not have a decent heater! Hope it gets fixed soon!

Kelli, I heard that you were a life saver during the fire! I guess you got everyone to safety? Anyway I am so glad you and your family were not injured. I hope everything is back to normal now! And also so glad to see you here!

How are you holding up Tia? It won't be long now and pretty soon we will have some nice walking weather!!!

My streak for daily exercise is still alive! 44 days and counting!!! I love it that I don't want to break this streak now... So it forces me to do the fitness even on the days I don't want to!!! LOL

Hi Kelli!!! Good to hear from you. Fingers crossed that hubby's job becomes permanent. And I'm with you...too much snow!! Was your house damaged when your neighbor's house caught fire? That's scary!!

I'm still hoping that I can get my heater in my car fixed soon. Gotta check with my mechanic to see if he sees me on his schedule any time soon. At least I have a space heater that runs off the cigarette lighter (no actual lighter, just the outlet). That keeps my hands warm on the drive to and from work.

Hi Everyone,

Once again I have been MIA. I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe in this weather. This snow is crazy.

My neighbors house caught on fire due to a gas leak a couple of weeks ago, we had the fire department and everything. Luckily we were all safe. Wet, cold, but safe. :)

I have finally started running again at the gym. YAY... and it feels good to get the exercise in.

My husband got a new job, so we are waiting to see if it goes permanent (right now it is temporary, so I am keeping my fingers crossed.)

I am with you Barb, we can only hope. I think it is really hard on kids to have to make up that many days and with little or no breaks. Not easy for the teachers either.

I think my son is even finally tired of snow. Especially since he doesn't have late start or early release from school this Wednesday. He's starting to understand that snow days have to be caught up!

Looks like we are precipitation free for the rest of the week, if the forecast is correct!

I ran around in a t-shirt, shorts and flip flops!! LOL! Not really, but it almost felt like I could.

Didn't watch any TV today. DS was watching the Today's show coverage of the build up to the inauguration. They were talking about how the Obama's and the Trump's were going back to the White House afterward and wasn't that "fascinating". It wasn't fascinating...but I couldn't watch any more of that scintillating conversation!! LOL!

Great job on the exercise streak!!! Woot!!

I didn't need the heater on the way home today. I hope it warms up tomorrow too so I can get my driveway and sidewalks properly cleaned off. They've been shoveled, but I think there will be a thin sheen of ice in the morning. I prefer that be gone. I'll need to make some menus and a grocery list so i can get my grocery shopping done tomorrow.

Is anyone heading to McCall for the ice sculptures?

Kathy, I'm sorry you got hurt! Nothing permanent, I hope. Thanks for the offer, but I'm going to pass on the freeze out run. That does not sound appealing to me at all!

Christine, I have a little heater now that works off of my cigarette lighter. It puts out just enough heat to make my drive bearable. Plus, it's going to be close to freezing, so that's practically warm! LOL!

Just got a text from the school district...school in Kuna is cancelled for Thursday. Sounds like work for Barbara might be cancelled too!!!

Oh no, sorry you got injured Kathy! And yes I am also ready for winter to at least get back to a normal one! LOL

I am not working on any projects except myself. I have started eating vegan and using a home elliptical. I also have a check sheet with other things on it too! I've already lost about 6 pounds. I am trying very hard to get in good habits.

Barb how was your morning commute? I worried about you again.... hope you wore two pairs of socks in case your heater was not fixed too!

This is my lot in life right now. This crazy old lady has been sidelined. I won't be running freeze out after all this weekend. I am looking for someone to run as me, because my entry is non refundable and non transferable. Barb??????? Loni would love your company.


Barb I hope you get your heater fixed in your car real soon that could be down right ugly on your long drive to work.

Tia did you take any pictures of your snow shoeing adventure?

Christine what projects are you working on now?

I am so ready for winter to be over.

Stay warm, dry and safe.

I'm also a GB fan, so I really liked that game! I totally understand why he called the timeout, but I was calling him some bad names! LOL!

My heater still isn't working in my vehicle. It got cold enough on the way to work that my phone turned itself off! I'm glad that I have a space heater at my desk so I can warm my feet up before I change shoes. Hoping to have the heater fixed this weekend...Fingers crossed!!

We bought 2 pairs of Tubbs Adventure Shoes. Again...awesome. And much easier than I thought it would be. We just picked a park and stuck to the outside rim where the snow was undisturbed - I'm guessing it was around 10 or 11 inches deep, which would be a big "sink" w/o the shoes.

That game was no joke! Holy COW - you could've heard a pin drop when GB kicked that last field goal, and then it was GOOD! We're big GB fans, but Dallas played really well I have to say, maybe even better than GB - it was like they couldn't hold onto the ball or something. And I've gotta say, that time-out that Dallas called at the 3 second mark, right when GB was getting ready to kick, was a low-class move - there I said it. Legal yes, but low class.

Blah, blah, blah, lol - Anyway, keep warm ladies - Hope you have a great week, and I look forward to warmer weather and walks on the Greenbelt.

I am mostly over my cold. Right now I just have a cough. Trying to hack up the mucous and stuff that has been settling there over the last week. I sound bad, but feel better.

Tia, where did you go snow shoeing? And wasn't that a great game!!! Obviously, it was a better game if you are a Green Bay fan.

Barb I'm up for mall walking depending on when.

Christine I think the ellipitcal is much harder then a treadmill. quite the work out.

Tia I have thought about trying to snowshoe but haven't yet.

Right now walking on the greenbelt is not very good. I had an 8 mile training run on it Saturday. A couple of miles were pretty icy. the rest was ok with just a few bad spots. But overall I would not recommend it with out yak traxs or studded running shoes.

Next race is Saturday, Freezeout challenge in Emmett. I am totally bonkers.

Hope you are all staying dry and warm. Stay safe out there.

Tia, what kind of snowshoes did you end up getting? That is one of the only snow activities I thought would be fun to learn!

Oh also. there are others who post on here, just not during winter much. :)

Hey Barb, are you over your cold? I am not interested in using gas to get to the mall. I use my elliptical daily so for now it is all I need. :) It is actually more than I need, hahahaha!

I was just curious, because you two are the only ones I ever see on here.

Anyway, went show shoeing today...AWESOME! Loved it! And it burns like 400 calories and hour - Boom! So that's 2 beers during the Greenbay vs. Dallas game today I just earned!

Hope you ladies are having a great weekend and staying warm!

I like meeting and walking, but not with the sidewalks the way they are now. Even if it were just cold, I'd be willing to get out and hike! Maybe we should plan a mall walk? We could get there early in the morning before the stores open. Fewer people too. Anyone interested?

Tia, now that would be hard to say... LOL Most of the people here are part of the group walking that takes place during good weather.

I used to try to make it more of a support group, but I have to admit I am not trying to do that anymore. I think lots of people that are on Spark People want to stay anonymous, so this team is too close to home for them.

At the rate we're going, it will be FOREVER before we have to worry about floods. It's going to be cold again! Planning to get my grocery shopping done tomorrow so I don't have to go anywhere on Saturday.

Good job getting the gutters cleared out, that is so important. I hope you have enough storm drains so you won't have any flooding, too! Not all of our neighbors are getting the gutters cleared out so I don't know how this is going to go when everything melts.

Hi Kathy!!!!

Hi Kathy!! I'm glad that your neighborhood has drains and that everyone is chipping in. We have one drain at the end of the cul de sac...I don't think it will be enough. We're doing our part to keep the gutters clear! Loni toldme about that 5k on the greenbelt. Sounds like no fun to me! I have a friend who did a half marathon in that weather!!

Christine, I'm glad that you got your gutters cleared. And that you got outside for a little bit. I hope you can stay in tomorrow, assuming that the freeze happens overnight.

I got to work from home today and I get to for the rest of the week. If the roads are bad, I'm glad I don't have to try to drive to work!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Hi Kathy! Wow I can't believe you were running in this muck! I can barely walk in it! Hope things are better for the "Freeze Out Challenge"! Sorry about your friends being in an area with no storm drains, wow! I hope the thaw won't be as bad as it looks like it will be.

Everyone stay safe!

Sorry everyone, I didn't realize how long it has been since I stopped to chat.

I hope all are well, warm and dry.

This shoveling is getting real old. This morning was by far the worst because it was so heavy. Thankfully my neighborhood has storm drains and we are all trying to keep it open. I have some friends that have no storm drains in their area and are getting concerned about the melt from the street will soon be in there house because the water has no where to go.

I had a race last weekend and it was a nightmare. It was the hot cocoa run. It was in Eagle. the greenbelt in that area had not been plowed so we were running in 6 inches of powered that had ruts of ice under it. My slowest 5K ever. I am just glad I wasn't doing a 10k because I don't think I could have done it in the conditions. Next race is the 18th in Emmett called the freeze out challenge. Should be very interesting.

Stay safe
I will try and check back more often.

I spent the better part of one hour digging out the gutters in front of my house. I have more to do tomorrow so that it will drain towards the storm drain down the street. For the most part it is a flooded mess right now. But all the neighbors are working on their front gutters so hopefully it will get better. emoticon
Yes everyone stay safe out there!

Woke up to another four inches of heavy, wet snow. I shoveled the back concrete pad for the dogs and then did the driveway. Just right around my vehicle, though! The roads were okay until I got to work and then it was snowing!!! Our cul de sac is flooded...really help it doesn't freeze tonight!

Stay safe and dry y'all!

I wondered if there was going to be school. It is ugly out there! In Nampa there is a 2 inch layer of ice! Your son is going to find out that all those days will be made up. MLK day, President's day and I don't know the next one. No breaks.... UGH! It is nice that he shoveled the snow as there was some wind out there today!

I didn't go out today. And I didn't make the soup. DH made French Onion and it was good!

Hope everyone had a good day in spite of this weather! emoticon

The 100% chance of school ended in a 0%! They cancelled school...just because it isn't safe. Rood! LOL!

DS got to shovel today. I was busy and gave him the option of making dinner or shoveling. He chose to shovel.

Let us know how your soup turns out!!

Bahahahaha! I love the "100% chance of school on Monday!" It would be nice to get back to normal sometime soon!

I went out to shovel and I didn't last long with my medium warm gloves! I need the super warm ones for tomorrow!

I think I am going to make a vegetable soup recipe I found.

I'll have to go back out with a rake or something and try again. At least it's warmed up some!!

I think I will make some potato soup tomorrow. Trying to make sure that DS and I both have leftovers for lunches this next week.

DH and I were discussing the weather and DS asked what the forecast was. I told him "100% chance of school on Monday!" LOL! He did not care for that answer!

emoticon emoticon HAPPY BIRTHDAY BARB!!!

Oh, I watched a late night news report that said we mainly need to worry about the edges of the roof. You can use a rake or whatever to get it down, about the length of your arm out. I used a long pool pipe to knock mine down, but I sure didn't get it all.

I agree I sure hope we can get through this without a big roofing bill! I should have knocked down the icicles down today but it was too cold for me. I will make sure the storm drain near my house is clear tomorrow though.

I may go to the store tomorrow. I need some stuff for my salads. I also froze my last soup, and I need to make a new one pretty soon.

Be careful walking to the library, if you do. emoticon

I knocked icicles down today, but there is still ice on the roof. No idea how to get that down. Hoping it doesn't turn into an issue before it melts.

With the new snow forecast to come tomorrow along with the high winds, I think I will stay home tomorrow. At most, I might go to the library. If I don't make it, not an issue...I have plenty of books to read hear at home!
