All over the place

I've gotta give you guys a big thank you.  You are so supportive when I post about my grandma and the roller coaster I'm going through with that, so thanks again for being awesome with your comments and emails.

I think I'm about ready for Spring.  I don't mean that in an "I'm bitching about the weather" whiney kind of way but in the fact I need more moisture in the air.  My hands are dry, my nose is dry, my feet are dry...I'm basically just dry.  No moisturizer or coconut oil confection can cure it.  I don't mind the Spring rains, which we had yesterday morning until 40 mph winds decided they wanted to usher in a winter storm to slap around the people who are counting down to Spring and think the weather will magically improve.

I'm a little bummed we weren't able to get in our walk yesterday because of the weather.  I know we can't really walk outside today either so I might have to throw in a Walk Away the Pounds and get in a mile.  We have been doing primarily Fitness workouts for the past two weeks.  When I am doing strength sessions, I tend to not push myself as hard as I should and need direction.  These have been great for variety and I am soooo sore.  My back is tight and I don't think I've ever done so many friggin' squats.  We follow up the workouts with a good stretching session to try to lessen the soreness the next day but you know, sleeping on a new mattress doesn't help with that either.  Things are still developing on that front so I'll update when we have something that doesn't resemble God's personal comic strip that has become our lives.

I got a heads up on my Facebook that Collage Video is going out of business!  BOO!  I loved to preview my videos there before I bought them.  So if you've been holding off on getting some DVD's, now might be the time to swing over there and see if you can score them at a deep discount while inventory lasts.  I'm looking at one or two WATP's for when we're not getting our butts handed to us with other workouts.

Today is gonna be a yummy food day.  I'm looking forward to it!  I know that's weird to end on but I just checked my food diary for today and planned some good stuff.  Leave me's all I have right now!

Share something as random as the crap I word barfed here.  If you need a question to answer, do you look at your planned food and do a little happy dance?

  1. Despite the fact that I would have loved to go XC skiing one more time I too am ready for spring now. I am looking forward to being able to go out without a coat. Wash the car in the driveway instead of having to pay to take it to an automatic car wash all the time. Walk outside for long periods without getting frostbite. All that good stuff.

  2. I'm looking forward to spring too. I really need to see the daffodils blooming, that always make me feel hopeful. I'm not looking forward to the wind that spring always brings around here though. We had a blowing dust advisory the other day and that wasn't fun. 25-35 mph sustained wind with 55ish mph gusts. Plus the topsoil from all the fields around here. I'd rather have 40 mph winds with rain that dust - wet is preferable to sand blasted. Then again I'd choose neither if that's an option.

    Random word crap? fluffernickles

  3. Aww, no more Collage Video? That's a dang shame. I wish there was something I wanted to buy, but I'm drawing a total blank right now.

  4. I'm figuring that today is the final sweater day of the first part of 2014! Supposed to be only 70 today and then skyrocket to about 90 by Sunday. Taking advantage of this final cool blast and dared to wear a turtleneck sweater...hoping the weathercasters didn't steer me wrong!!

  5. Collage Video---noooooooooooo! That's where I got my Walk Away the Pounds dvd! That stinks! I hear you about moisture--I've had a bloody nose on the left side for weeks now. My right hand looks so old and dry because it's the only I do the dishes with so it's always drier than the other one. It's just nasty. I have super dry skin as it is, so this winter weather isn't helping. It's supposed to be 50 degrees here tomorrow but with strong winds. That might not be too bad as it'll help dry up the stuff that's melting. I'm so glad it's Friday tomorrow--even though I'm doing the taxes over the weekend--yech. It's been a long week at work!
