Exercising in Cool Weather

Okay, maybe not exactly cool, but how about 30 degrees? Yesterday I chose to chase the dog around the house for 20 minutes instead of going on a walk. I strained a butt muscle! Have you ever done that? You can feel it sitting down, lying down, walking, standing, etc.

"Aaaaarrrrggggghhhhh" screamed Charlie Brown. I thought that by constant movement like walking the dog outside might work out the kinks. Can't say that it did. All she did was pull, pull, pull to get wherever it was that she wanted to go. She doesn't distinguish between dry sidewalk and black ice sidewalk...we both survived.

Well, friends, there are 20 days left until the chaotic wrapping paper wars! We will get the tree up and decorations out this weekend, but there's no promise the tree will have anything on it, or that the decs will make it out of the tubs! Bah, humbug!

Happy decorating, craft show jumping, lunching with BFFs, and the usual fun stuff of laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, paying bills......!

I am cracking up! I haven't thought to chase my dogs around the house... thanks for the butt muscle warning! LOL!

My decorations are coming up slowly as I'm being dragged kicking and screaming into the season. Dang it! I don't have kids so it's much harder to get motivated.

Thanks for stopping my blog. I've enjoyed reading some of your posts.

Enjoy the carbs this season and it sounds like you've got the right idea about portion size and staying active.

Keep it up!
