High calorie week-end

Last night my husband's Cursillo team had a meeting--lots of snacks plus homemade ice cream. Then today we attended a party for our friend Jim DeVore who died in February. There was lots of food. Then tomorrow night our couples group from church will be meeting. So I hopped on the exercycle this evening, for 23 minutes and 83 calories.

Monday morning

After exercise class today, I stopped at Thompson Park and walked for 15 minutes. The day promised to be unusually warm, so I thought doing it early would be a good idea. The low spots were flooded, but it wasn't too hard to get around. Not many people out and about since this is spring break week for Ohio State and many of the local schools.
This photo is from Spring 2006--looks much the same, though, without the dandelions.

Dark clouds rolling in from the northwest

But I got in 25 minutes of walking in the sunshine. The forsythia are glorious. They were cut down to about 6" two years ago when the street was repaired and the wall and sidewalk built, and now are about 6' tall. If you have scrungy, straggly bushes, cut them back. You'll thank yourself (or your gardener) next year.

Record heat--almost

I walked outside this afternoon for 25 minutes, and did stretching and weights in exercise class 1 hour this morning. Unusually warm for mid-March.

First day of my first cold this winter

Sigh. I just hate colds. They last forever, it seems. So I'm skipping exercise class this morning, and got on the bike for 20 minutes. 2 miles and about 54 calories. Slow and easy.
