Off the couch again

I have resumed running again. I am doing c25k again. I made it through week 6 last time, so this time I am starting at week 1, but on an incline this time. I completed week 1 earlier this week and am starting week 2 today. I finally went out and purchased a good running bra. I love it, I think. It was kinda expensive as far a bra goes, but it does what it is supposed to do. However it is a little snug, but I guess that is how it does what it does so well. I still need to invest in some running shoes though. I am also considering getting a game for the wii, the Active Personal Trainer. It looks encouraging. Today I played Wii outdoor challenge with my daughter and I must say, it was tiring. There were times I could feel my thighs burning. I have been trying to eat better, but keep getting sidetracked in that department. A lot of these diet/healthy foods, give me a lot of gas. Not a good thing to have at work. Eventually I will find the right combo of foods that I can stick with. But for now, off to run to start week 2!!!

More Snow

I haven't checked in here in a while. How ironic that I wrote about snow on my last post, because we have been inundated with snow over the last week. We recently went on a cruise the end of Jan. It was wonderful. But since we have been back, approx 10 days, it has snowed 4 times. These last 2 times have been blizzards. The first one, last weekend gave us about 30 inches of snow. The 2nd blizzard today has added another almost 20 inches of snow. The total of snow for this year alone is up to almost 83 inches ( I think last years total was maybe 20 inches if that). And in case you were not aware, I HATE SNOW!!!!!!!!!! There has been talk of another possible snow storm on Mon. I don't know what we are going to do. Grocery stores are out of food, unable to get deliveries, gas stations are out of gas (not that I could go anywhere to need gas), the snow plows are getting stuck on side streets, since some are yet to have been plowed since the first storm on Fri. It is just crazy. The news stations have been on the air since Fri night. I really would like to see some regular TV, thank you very much. Well, since I am pretty grumpy about this whole thing, I better go.
