Groundhog day, 2-2-2012

Thursday, February 02, 2012

"According to ABC news, at 7:20 a.m. Punxsutawney Phil came out of his hole in Gobbler's Knob, PA and saw his shadow on this day, 2-2-2012. That means 6 more weeks of winter."
So, what will we do with this Wintertime we have to face for another 6 weeks? Sit around, go skiing or sledding, go to the gym, read a book, take a brisk walk, keep busy with other fun things, or just plain do nothing? Many of you live in warmer climates or countries that are having a different season or temperatures. It is great for you to have this. Many Ohioans go to Florida for the cold months we have here. They call themselves the "Snowbirds." Love warmer weather, but need to face where I live and make a plan. I hope to do many active things to get ready for Spring. How about you? There is a cute comedy, many of you probably have seen, called, "Groundhog day." See it if you have not and see what you think. (-: (-: Laughter rewards the soul and we all need to laugh with and at ourselves each day.
Christmas is over for 2011. January is gone. Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday, the 5th. Plan snacks ahead if you can. I know it is a day that is hard to control all the eating. Then, we have Valentines day coming a week from Monday on the 14th of Feb. Primary election day on the 6th of March here in OH. Not sure if that is your day too? Then of course, St. Patty's day on March 17th, first day of Spring in OH is on the 20th of March. Spring will creep up on us and we will then know if all the activities we did (or did not do) helped our health and our bodies feel better. Doing it will prove successful, I am sure. More exercise each day really proves to be beneficial. I know it and really find I feel so much better, not only physically, but mentally, when I exercise each day or at least several times a week. I am planning and tracking for better healthy days and new recipes to help me be determined to do better. Easter is coming too on April 8th here. Hope I am thinner and focused when it arrives. emoticon

Being determined to stick to the plan will really show up on the scale. We can do this. I can do this. Let's get moving and make this a wonderful 6 weeks before Winter.
Lots of hugs dear Spark friends, thanks for being here motivating me on.

    You blokes have lots of holidays. Our next holiday is Regatta Day in a week or so, then Labor Day in March and then Easter.

    Our Summer is over at the end of February and Autumn begins. emoticon
