Shoveling today was not for fun!

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Our unseasonal thaw gave me a major shoveling project overnight. When I got up this morning, the snow had slid off the roof, inundating the steps and blocking a lot of the parking space. Now, having slid down the roof and hit the ground hard, this snow was packed, and I mean PACKED! No more Mr. Fluffy Snow, no sir-ee! Had to chop at it with a spade before I could begin to move it with a shovel or pusher. But again, a couple of hours of reasonably strenuous work and hey, presto! I've burned mega-calories and the steps and driveway are completely functional again.

The very good news is that already this week I've tracked nearly double my target calories to burn and likewise my number of exercise minutes, and I still have a chance to do more tomorrow.

*And* the very, very good news for me is that the scales tell me what my jeans have been telling me for a day or two: I've dipped below 150 again : ) This is a Big Thing for me as my target range is 145 to 150, with a specific goal of reaching 145 by Valentine's Day. PAULOBRY, I'm getting within tagging distance of you again : )
