The weather outside is frightful
Yes, winter nastiness has descended upon Boston. We woke up to the following:
The roads were yucky. I think that the plows know that it’s changing to rain, and therefore haven’t plowed ANYTHING!! I was driving extra slowly this morning.
Also, since it’s changing to rain/ice, everyone in parking lot has done a peculiar thing: they put up their windshield wipers so that they don’t freeze.
I swear I have never seen this before I moved to Boston. So weird. I don’t know if it really works, or if the wipers then just get frozen in the up position.
So recap from last night:
Went to PT (a few minutes late, don’t you love the last minute crunches at work just before you have to leave). It was a difficult routine which included “jump push-ups”, where you do a push-up and then jump off of your hands. I managed to do 12 each round (2 rounds) with doing push-ups from my feet (not my knees), which my trainer said that not many people can do!! GO ME! I also introduced her to my Polar F6 Heart Rate Monitor. She always wondered why I kept looking at my “watch” during training! Speaking of the HRM, I added a tab called Exercise in case anyone was curious as to what my physical activities entail.
Came home from PT and had a nice bowl of chili. I bought a can of Hormel Turkey Chili and made some additions. I added some red kidney beans, chili powder, dried minced onions, and cinnamon (just like Skyline Chili). I split the can into two portions (like the Nutrition Facts actually say!?!) so guess what I have for lunch today?
Don’t you also love my Tivo remote!?! Don’t get me started on the joys of the “bloop bloop”.
I was a bit alarmed at the amount of sodium in the canned chili (although not surprised). Luckily, I am blessed with LOW blood pressure (like 100/60), so I don’t pay that much attention. As long as I don’t have this EVERYDAY, I figure I’m okay.
I hope that everyone has survived this winter storm and we’ll be ready for the next one. Hopefully that’s a REAL storm!
