Brrrr - Baby it’s COLD outside but... now 6 for 6!!

Tuesday, January 07, 2014

I know this site is all about health, nutrition and wellness but…. Baby it's COLD here and I hope you will enjoy this rather lengthy blog.

As the day began I woke this morning to the beautiful emoticon shining so I quickly pulled open the shades to bask in the sunshine! I turned to check the temps and emoticon -15 below zero. YEP you are reading that correctly... emoticon -15. Oh and then they like to factor in the lovely…”feels like” temperature which was a whopping emoticon emoticon -41 below zero! Baby now THAT IS COLD!

But with the emoticon so bright there’s no way…although all channels confirmed the temperature was correct. This is the worst in 2 decades and now we set a new record low or rather high - whatever / whichever emoticon but either way…baby it’s down right COLD outside.

So of course all news channels are recommending everyone to stay in - DO NOT GO OUTSIDE. Ya right, like that’s going to stop ME, sorry but I've always been a kind of rebel inside. emoticon Tell me not to do something and well, there you go - out I travel. Well first off I have to take my little pooch out. So on go her boots, but I nixed the jacket, as that’s more of a nuisance than anything. But had to put on her boots since I just heard a news report about how some of the salts being used can cause real issues to animals paws, not to mention the TEMPERATURE OF emoticon -15 BELOW OUTSIDE!!! Come on now, if I’m all bundled up with boots why not her as well.

Awww isn’t she cute??? Although I may be a bit prejudice - ya think?

Oh and how she loves the snow, I was soo afraid every time she’d go barreling into the snow that out she’d come with a missing boot or two. Luckily I fasten them on tight enough as we both returned in with all our boots on! emoticon

Oh and remember from yesterday’s blog of LIVING IN A SNOW GLOBE…

Well today here’s a look at living in a FREEZER with the LIGHT ON emoticon emoticon

OK back to the rebel in me emoticon… Just running the pooch out was not enough so I drove to my Father-in-laws to help him with some computer issues. Then offered to drive him to visit my Mother-in-law who is currently in re-hap from breaking her hip on December 11, 2013.

Oh but wait the "rebel" in me emoticon gets even stronger. We return from visiting, stopped for dinner and notice I have a headlight out - drat’s!! So I drop my Father-in-law back home and plan to stop at the local mall - which is COMPLETELY CLOSED due to extreme weather conditions dah! WHAT??? You have got to be kidding. But…here’s a thought, all the stores may be closed but the MALL is still open.

An AAAAhhhh moment!! So I park the car, went inside and walked the inside parameter 4x’s for a total of 72 minutes. And YEP you guessed it - until my lovely SPAT (Spark People Activity Tracker) fully glowed!

emoticon - I’m now 6 for 6 and really getting crazy with this - ya think?? Who knows what this rebel in me will be up to tomorrow --- emoticon

    Your baby doggie IS cute, looks like a Shih Tzu. We have a Shih Tzu and a Shih Tzu/Maltese mix and we had them out to do their thing, too. We only went for one block with their little coats on, though. With this bitterly cold weather (Chicago) they can only go for a little bit before they *clunk* fall over and then we carry them back into the house to warm up. There's no getting out the back door because there's a snow drift more than half way up the storm door. I wonder if we burn more calories when we're out in this bitter cold? I know I'm using shoveling snow as my aerobic activity for this week!

    i'd rather be on the west coast, beaches, sand, instead of here with cold and snow, even with the sun shining.
