Friday Afternoon Brrrr!


Enough of that! Last night, after class, I did 3 minutes on the elliptical machine and 30 minutes on the treadmill running and walking. When I got out to my van, it was covered with snow and ice. I went looking for my handy dandy ice scraper and found bean bags and a sled. So, I turned on my van, opened my laptop and waited for the ice to melt on the windshield. I approved a few posts, read a few more and then took off.

I got home and I was so mad about hubby taking my ice scraper out of the van! I didn't know how I was going to let him have it, I just knew I was going to let him have it. So, as I'm gathering all my stuff from school and workout, I try to lock the doors. It won't work. GREAT! He prolly broke the lock thing, too. So I get into the house and go after him about the ice scraper.

As a way to make it up to me, Hubby tells me I can sleep in this morning. Ahhh! How lovely! When it's time for Yankee to go to school, Hubby can't find van key! I get up and look around everywhere...can't find it. I look out the window and Hubby is backing out of the driveway. I was furious! He could have at least told me he found it, right? So he gets back home and says, "I found the key, in the ignition of the van, with it running." DOH! At least the van was nice and warm! UGH!

So while I was at school last night, I signed up for the treadmill for today. What was I thinking? So I went to work out today. I didn't want to run. I didn't want to do anything really, so I put the incline at 5.5, the speed at 3.0 mph and worked out for 30 minutes. My legs were burning, but it felt good.


  1. Mandy, lol re: the van, how long was it running??
    Great job keeping up on those workouts!
    I can't even imagine the cold, we're having 65-70 degrees forcast for the next week! I'm wishing our sunshine your way!

  2. The van was running for nine hours and forty minutes.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog! :) Thanks for the compliments!! :) :)

  4. Burning Legs! Sounds like a great name for a 70's rock band. Where's my BIC lighter?

  5. u shoulda told him you found the key minutes before and went and started it for him. And that you had told him you were doing it if he would just listen he would've known.

    Not that'd I'd ever do that.
