After I blogged yesterday, my best friend called and wanted to go for a walk. I was like a little kid anticipating her coming over. She lives a block away, but with winter, work, and our kids' activities, we haven't seen each other since I don't know when. We got caught up chatting and walked for 36 minutes, 1.5 miles. She walks a lot slower than me, but I'm ok with that. We need to chat anyway.

Today I went on another walk. I've enjoyed these bundled up walks. I don't think I could handle jogging in the winter, but with walking I can just wear all my winter gear and go. It was pretty chilly today, 27 degrees out when I started. The wind cooled that down a little more too. I feel my legs, so I must be doing some good for my muscles.

Eating has been going pretty well. I had some treats on Sunday, but it was St. Patrick's day. I've been eating a lot of fruits and veggies, and I use Greek yogurt instead of mayo for things. I also add the yogurt to Ranch to cut the fat there too. It thickens it up for a good dip for veggies.

Stay warm Iowa & Nebraska. It looks like we're going to get hit with another storm.
