It's been a mish mash of weather- really cold, but then almost melty, then a douse of snow. I didn't get new snow boots. While the lining shifts in my Totes I just move it back when I put them on. My feet still are staying dry and toasty. I was really looking forward to the nature center hike and brewery event today. The shot of cortisone seems to be giving me relief and I haven't gotten together with these mom friends since late September. Well, I can still get outside in the park with pup. I'll mask up and avoid interactions. If the kids are out playing, especially since we got fresh snow, and they call me over to see their snow creations, I'll have to just tell them I have the plague.
Really even in the coldest days, I enjoy my walk. I like to go off the path so I have to really lift my legs up from the snow. I help clear a path for pup. He thinks he's a husky every winter- loves the snow. My long Columbia coat keeps me almost roasting. If you live in cold climates, investing in good outerwear is a must to avoid the dreaded cabin fever.
Because of meetings, it's been dark most days this week when we finally get in our walk. See what I mean about my husky? He's also apparently a snow tracking dog. He sniffs out every foot print made before us.
I'm not sure how much true working out I'll do this week. I'm hoping my seemingly just cold like symptoms stay that way so not going to push myself. Fresh air though has to be good and I'll still burn a few calories outside. Maybe I'll build my own snowman all by myself.
