Day 9: Well, it happened.

Day 9: Well, it happened.

It happened yesterday. Earlier than I would have expected, but there you go. 

Yesterday, my super friend (let's call her Cathy) came to my rescue (or actually Thom's rescue) and drove me to Mississauga to buy Thom a new stick for last night's game. As we drove, I was telling my friend  that I had skipped boxing because I am feeling really tired. I told her how after our (amazing) walk at High Park Wednesday, I was exhausted for the rest of the day. I woke up yesterday morning wondering if I was sick, or maybe depressed?  Cathy suggested I needed to be more careful to eat properly, and I said yes, maybe I needed more Iron, and I need ginseng too, and more protein while I'm at it. Then I joked that I was grasping at straws and thought everything was wrong with me; when Cathy said "Or it's February for God's sake!" 

So there it is Challengers. Even with going outdoors everyday, fresh air and exercise, February can still getcha'. I honestly thought...I was immune. 

But, I'm happy to report. I went home, took a tablespoon of ginseng, popped an iron pill; mixed up a peanut butter-banana protein smoothie, and feel right as rain, and ready to take on the rest of the month.

Anyone else feeling a little run down? Let's be intentional with our self care; it's extra important right now. 

Photo Challenge let's share pictures of our super friends. (I have to ask my super friend first if I can do that, so check in later today for that)

Until tomorrow

Have an outdoorsy day

I would like to talk about something I witnessed in town over the last several weeks. As I mentioned previously, we had a Polar Vortex. It was too cold to walk to the grocery store, let alone just sit outside all day. Which is what a member of this town had been doing for months.

My Winter Walks
My Winter Walks

I am just back from a walk along the country road where I live, a road bordered by fields and stands of trees. My intention was to get some exercise, which meant covering some distance at a reasonable pace. My intention is important, as it affects many other choices: type of shoes, clothing, walking poles, water, binoculars, camera etc.

Good For You Momma
Good For You Momma

 After stopping for the dogs to poop and stopping to change Jett’s diaper (twice) we were off!! We walked through a sunny meadow, climbed up the frozen cascades and returned via a side trail that skirted the riverbank. Bliss.
