50 minutes of cardio in the form of shoveling snow!

Food Journal – No

 Good morning Mintdom,

 It is 11:28 on Sunday morning and I wanted to get this started before I go out to shovel.  I had a low step count yesterday, but I added cardio because I yesterday we got almost 2 feet of snow and I shoveled my driveway to try and keep up with it a little.  I figure by the time I could get out.. I did not want to shovel the whole thing at once!  There is a huge mound at the end of my driveway.  Another good reason to get strong is to be able to shovel snow.

OK… it is afternoon… I have shoveled, cooked, ate lunch (leftover spaghetti and salad), talked with my daughter and worked on my farm.  Now I am listening to Christmas music and getting ready to put up some decorations.  I do not know about the rest of you, but I REALLY like this snow thing.  I am not getting steps in BUT I am burning a lot of calories!  Lol

Just Think of ALL the Calories I Burned!

  I had help with my driveway at the end.  My neighbors – two that I just met – helped dig out the last of it where the plow blocked my driveway.  It was the hardest part because it had not been touched.  <patting herself on the back> I have to say though… that I am proud of myself for shoveling all the black top.  Just think of all those calories burned!!!  I can feel it already though!

:::::: running out and throwing a snowball at my house::::::  I do not  want to be accused of being old (shut up Bruce) lolol.  You can look at snow as you look at life.  You can look at it as an inconvenience, troublesome, an interruption, hard work, and difficult OR you can look at it as beautiful, wonderful, pure, a way to burn calories, a way to make new friends and lots of fun!  It is a choice.  I choose the latter. 

AffirMINTion:  I love snow and all the opportunities it brings!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

 Life is good!
