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...
