Entry 602 - Winter Activities

...if anyone finds any for this winter that don't involve being inside, let me know.

Seriously, though, this winter has just been awful. Going outside and doing anything? Not really a very good idea unless the roads are clear and the weather is actually decent.

Today is rather nice, with bright sunshine and mild temperatures. A little wind, but still not very bad. I not only went out and shoveled a bit, but also did some walking around the neighborhood.

Shoveled yesterday too, after work, and I feel much better having been active two days in a row.

I looked over my last entry, and I think I'm off to a good start this year. Things at work are good enough, and I've managed to not only re-learn things I had forgotten but also learn some nifty new tricks. :)

As for the being active part? Well, two days in a row of shoveling and walking helps! I've also figured out that yes, my eating habits are probably not helping me any. I'm pretty much to the point I might start posting what I've eaten and all each day, just to see if I can manage to guilt myself into behaving.

On days I can't go outside and don't work, well, I have access to a treadmill and I have a yoga mat. Also, I have two little hand-weights to use. I can come up with something.

Hopefully when the weather gets nicer, I can be outside more and more. More walking, more activity, more fresh air. I figure since I know shortcuts to get home, I may walk home from work more. After all, it'll save gas money, right?

The writing...well, I'm trying. :) I have so many ideas that sometimes I just don't know where to start. However, I'm looking over my list again, and I'll see what jumps out at me. Whatever I do get done, well, I may start posting to FDD again.

I think I'm mostly posting for myself, though, since I never see updates from anyone else. Did everyone bail on LJ for greener pastures? Oh well. If anyone does read this still, drop me a line of some kind. Leave a comment here, shoot me an email, whatever works. :)

Spring will come soon, I'm sure of it. Just have to get through winter first...

yup
It's been miserably cold here, and we're supposed to get 15 inches(!) of snow in the next few days. I'm trying to lose weight too, and I found something that really helps me: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/ You can look up foods and get an idea of what the calories are, track exercises, and edit entries if you need to. There are also apps if you have a smartphone or tablet, but you don't need them if not. I hope spring catches up by the end of this month.
