Snow Feed


I walked yesterday and today!  There was snow on some of the sidewalks, but I was able to walk without a lot of trouble.  I had to walk a lot slower in the places with snow, but other than that, I was fine.  I actually did a little dance on my back steps as I got home yesterday. :P

I was able to check my post office box and I had five letters from new pen pals! :)  Today I had one more.  That was awesome. Both walks felt great.  I really missed being out there! I stopped at the bank to cash in some pennies.  I also stopped by the grocery store to pick up a few things I needed.  

Today I just stopped at the post office.  I came home and did a few things and then ate lunch.  I did my workouts. It was ab and cardio day.  I am tired!  I am going to relax for a bit and then get more things done. Sorry I didn't post yesterday.  I totally meant to, and then didn't.

Walk... well...

Today I said, I have to get out there.  Even if it's just walking in circles in my yard.  I did this for a bit and realized that walking on uneven snow in my yard is not fun.  I stuck with it anyway and walked for a while.  Then I walked around front and decided to walk up my street and out in the neighborhood to see how the other streets looked.  I went to the top street and then across the train tracks to the main road.  It looked okay until I got to the sidewalk I usually start on.  There was a snowy mountain on it! :p  All the snow they scraped from the streets is now on the sidewalks in piles. I turned around and headed back to the house and walked around the yard enough to get in 1.5 miles.  Keep in mind I usually walk 8.5 miles a day!  

My feet were soaked and freezing.  If it hadn't been for that, I would have stayed out a bit longer and tried to get in more miles.  Maybe the snow will be melted more tomorrow.  I hope by walking all over the yard, I'm wearing down the snow. So, I came in and got my poor feet warm.  I did a few things online and then did my Blogilates workouts.  It was upper body day.  I got to use my new heavier weights I bought at the beginning of the month! YAY!  My poor arms felt it, too!  I did the daily calendar workouts, the #30daywaisttrainer challenge and the #callmemaybesquatchallenge.  I've done it every day this month! :)

I have been running around my house doing stuff and then I realized that my Fitbit was in the charger. ~_~; Luckily I didn't miss too many steps.  I usually get 21,000 + a day.  With the snow, I've been lucky to get 5000.  Today I am 10,000 + so I'm satisfied.  I hope to top that tomorrow.  As soon as I can walk safely again, I'll be right back to my normal step count.  I'm SO glad to have Cassey's workouts to keep me moving during this walk down time!

Well, well, well....

I guess everyone thinks I died.  I didn't!  I'm still here. I just haven't posted to my blog in a while.  Sorry about that.  I've been working on getting some snail mail pen pals.  I have signed up at four or five.  Unfortunately, people aren't reading the ads.  They are just sending me requests for love/dating/whatever.  I just want friends and I just want snail mail pals.  I have found one good person, though! :)  She is supposed to be writing me so that will be great.  

I had a lot of snail mail pen pals back in the day and I really want to get back into it.  If you know of any legit pen pal sites that aren't dating centric, let me know, okay? Thanks! :)

Yes, I've been walking and working out everyday!  I took my longer walk today because it is supposed to snow here a lot tomorrow and Saturday.  I may miss out on my walks for a few days, so I wanted to get in the longer one.  I also had to go to Kmart to get prescriptions, so that didn't hurt! :P  I will miss my walks, but they won't scrape the sidewalks!  When I walked at the Riverwalk trail, that was great, they actually scraped the trail.  Since I've been walking from home to town and back, I'm having to take a few days off.  

Hopefully it won't be as bad as they are calling for.  It snowed briefly yesterday and there were a few patches of snow on the sidewalks in shady areas.  Not too bad.  The only thing is, they are calling for A LOT.  A lot means I'm not going out there and ice skating on the sidewalk. :p I'm glad I have my workouts.  At least I'll be able to do those inside.  Today's calendar had six workouts on it and one of them was the 100 Burpee burnout. OMG I almost died. I also did the Call Me Maybe squat challenge that I've done every day this month.  

I am now sitting at my desk on the laptop typing this up. OH! My sister stopped by today and brought me some food.  Since they are calling for bad weather, she was afraid I didn't have a lot of food.  She was right! I had some, but not a lot.  Now I have lots of good things.  I have so much good stuff, I have to decide what I want for dinner! :)
