It snowed here last week, again! Lots. And in addition to my own shovelling, I spent Saturday shovelling a friend's parents' driveway, and doing some other chores. They are out of town, and my friend caught the flu -- the real Influenza, wasn't up to it. Since I was on the mend getting over my bad cold, I was happy to help her out. After dropping a bunch of soup at her door, I headed over to her parents' place. It took an hour and a half to clear their driveway because after it had snowed, there was thaw over a few days, and a re-freeze which means tough snow, tough ice. Regular shovel, heavy metal shovel, and an old heavy-duty ice scraper/chopper helped me get the job done. Now that was an upper body workout!
I'll be travelling more for work in the upcoming months, and that will be a big challenge. My next business trip next month, I'm booked into a hotel for three days but it doesn't have a fridge, microwave or kettle/coffeemaker. Not my choice of venue, but I'll figure it out. The hotel restaurant's menu is basically a step above fast food. Finding vegan or vegetarian restaurants, cafes, and local grocery stores that have healthy food is my side project.
Anywhoozle, my weight is still 186 lbs. With little exercise in the past while, my scale will stay still. Tracking in MyFitnessPal shows no day above 1600 cals. Now that I've been feeling better I've been walking a lot more, and getting back into my routines. Not panicking... yet!
