Snow storm, guess it will be a white christmas

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Started snowing last night and now blizzard today. 10 inches of snow so far. Does going out and shovelling and cleaning cars court as excercise? Then on top of it, started a cold today. Well actually last night, the throat started to get sore. School cancelled and some work places. So won't have to go in and see the little ones today, was looking forward to it for I love to see their faces this time of year when I wear my hats for Christmas. Suppose to get my hair cut this afternoon so will see if she will be there. With the wind blowing as it is we will probably have to do more later today to be able to get out. Guess it will be a white Christmas.

I have been lazy this week and not getting in my excercise but then said I would not worry about it for the rest of the year. This is a difficult time of year to keep myself under control on snacks and excercise. Too busy. Keep telling myself that I will not worry about it till the 1st of the year when I will get real strick .

    I think shoveling snow and clearing your car are very aerobic exercises so log them as such! I think a lot of people are setting weight program aside for the holidays. So many people get revved up to lose in January so you can join the tide and participate in some challenges and such. I will not be setting my program aside. I may not work it perfectly when I encounter a plate of cookies or a similar goody, but I continue to try to do better next time. It is cold out where you are (close to 80 here) so maybe you can do some movement at home. I believe getting up and just marching in place for a minute or two counts--especially if you do it several times a day. If you've ever done Leslie Sansone videos, you know how easy the moves are. Just do them during the commercials. I have my Wii Fit set up and I strive to get 30 minutes or more on it. Not all the exercises are hard and daunting. Some involve working on my balance. ANYWAY, my take-away message is just don't give up!

    The only way we get a white Christmas is if we go to the mountains. Have a very Merry Christmas.
