Spring in NW Colorado

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Yep, Spring has Sprung in NW Colorado! My last blog was about the sun shining and melting the snow so fast.... and since then, we've got about a foot of snow in 2 days! Yes, it warms up in the afternoon and most of it melts, but there is still snow on the ground! It makes for lots of mud and makes me NOT want to walk outside! And since I'm on Spring Break, I don't want to drive to town to walk in the school!

So tomorrow starts my challenge of getting my exercise in while on Spring Break ~ not having someone push me and being on a schedule each morning! I have a plan though ~ which is going to make the difference I think ~ not having a plan, I would probably do very little!

1) I plan to do at LEAST 30 minutes on the Wii in the morning ~ either Wii Fit or Wii Dance, or even Wii Zumba. ~ this usually turns into longer
2) I plan to do at LEAST 10 minutes on the stationary bike OR go for a walk if the road is dry enough.
3) I plan to do some misc. exercises like crunches, planks, lunges etc.
4) I plan to do some extra stairs

so like I said, I have a PLAN ~ which hopefully will become reality! No, it WILL become reality.

if I go to town this week, I PLAN to stop in and do some TRX training. but I also hope that I don't make many trips to town this week! It's so nice to just stay home!

    Just outside of St. Louis - I have 11 inches at my house and supposed to get a few more today!!! It feels like home! I wish we would get snow like this all winter. Shovled my parents entire driveway yesterday for a couple of hours - theres 1000+ calorie workout WITH brownie points!

    I did skip my AM swim as I had to dig myself out this morning. Wish the guy that plows our street could understand that just making a big pile on the side of the road with a clear spot down the middle really doesn't help all that much.

    Tomorrow - Zumba - today....Dance Dance Revolution with my 3 year old this evening maybe????

    Always good to have a plan. With out a plan your chances of success are not as good. Have a great spring break!

    Having goals/a plan is a great place to start. Good for you! When I'm on break I always make up a calendar of "appointments" of what I'm going to do and when. Otherwise the time flies by and I accomplish nothing. Enjoy your break!

    Having a plan is an awesome thing. On the Eastern plains of Colorado here and the snow is everywhere. I am glad it is spring break so I don't have to go anywhere either. I can get in lots of shoveling for next few days for extra excersises here. lol. Enjoy your spring break.
