Start of a new month

I don't know about you, but I really am ready for spring this year. Every day, when I drive up and down my street, I look at the shrinking piles of snow. Some are still several feet high, and extend into our road, but the lawns are really showing, and I think I noticed the redish tinge some of the bushes get when spring is approaching. I think I am just so ready I will see anything.

I am ready to want to walk up and down my little dead end street.
I am ready to tackle my garden, and weeds.
I am so ready. And I know that will help in the fitness department as well.

Today, I did not start the day with my exercise, but I did fit in about a mile of walking. And at supper (leftover chicken soup and salad), I mentioned I had really wanted to start getting on the wii on mornings I don't work, and in the afternoons on the days I work. My husband pulled out the wii after supper for some wii bowling, and we played 2 games, twenty minutes. I bounced around in between rounds while waiting my turn. About twenty minutes of playing. Then I had an apple with a little cream cheese fruit dip, followed by some almonds.

I also logged ALL my food today, and am still working on my water.

I am in the process of trying to make a daily plan/schedule for fitting in fitness, chores, creativity. I am committing my work to God.

Have a great weekend. February is behind us, and we can push on towards waiting for daffodils, and forsythia and all our flowered friends greeting us.

    Spring doesn't seem anywhere near here as the temperatures dive once more into well below normal temperatures for us. Add that to the hazard of very icy streets and sidewalks, and its a capper to one of the worst and longest winters I have ever suffered through :( Its a good thing I can get plenty of exercise in my apartment. That is great you are getting into the wii again, that makes getting your motion in fun!
    Setting a regular program to follow will go a long way for you to get into a healthy routine!
    Good luck with it -you can do this!!

    Please don't boo me but I love winter! I agree I am more active during spring and summer,but there is nothing more beautiful than watching huge flakes float to the ground and cover everything in a blanket of white. Isn't it great that God gave us seasons to enjoy and look forward to? emoticon emoticon
