Spring is bringing out the changes in me too!

Monday, April 07, 2014

This winter has been pretty harsh-yes I live in Canada and all the winters are harsh, but this year was way colder than I remember past winters. Tons of snow, as per usual, but really bitter temperatures with lots of wind (and ice storms too). So yesterday was such a blessing to have sunshine and a high temperature of 10 degrees celsius. We still had our winter coats on and there is, of course, still snow on the ground (and ice in spots), but it was so great to go for a walk and just enjoy the outside air. I had already done my 3 mile workout (Leslie Sansone DVD), but I ended up enjoying a walk with my family for at least 3.7 miles. I say "at least" because I did my best to calculate the route, but some of it was in a park which isn't on a map (so I didn't count that part).
Today I did my usual 3 miles with Leslie again and boy my legs are feeling it today. I feel happy that there was a time that I'd have said "Let's drive down to the park and then go for a walk on a trail", especially since I'd already worked out. Instead, we walked the 3 kms to the park and back AND walked some trails.
Thanks Sparkpeople for helping me stay on track on this journey!

    emoticon There was a lot of inclement weather everywhere this winter, however, we have to accept the good with the not so good, the bitter with the sweet! emoticon It's great that you were able to get out and enjoy the nicer weather, getting your workout in and making it happen! emoticon Maybe, Spring is really here! emoticon emoticon emoticon
