How is it that I’m getting sick even after an almost perfectly clean week? Look at my menus…I’ve eaten salad every night since like Sunday and my fruit intake is higher than it has been in ages and I’ve been getting some form of good exercise every day. Yet, while lying in bed last night I could feel a scratchy throat coming on and now I can feel it moving to my sinuses. Just in time for FH to come home on Monday. Yippee. So, water and Vitamin C are my friend today.

I blame the shoveling in 80km/hour winds and blowing icy rain last night.

Ya, it took me three attempts to get all of the shoveling done. First time out, my fingertips froze so fast I barely got around the car done…20 mins max. Then about an hour later, I tried again and lasted another 20 mins. So after dinner I dug around in the closet, found a second pair of gloves and layered them up with a couple of those hand warmer thingies and finally managed to stay out there a full 30 mins and get the driveway cleared. Who needs a workout after that? Not me!

I’ve already been back out there this morning for another 20 mins clearing the pile of heavy, soggy crap the plow left at 2am too. And now they are telling me we are in for more of this on Sunday! Farm Girl was right….FH will be cabbing home from the ship and shoveling his way in to see me.

OK, enough snow rants for today. Nine storms this season, I guess you guys are probably sick of hearing about it!

No big plans on the agenda for today. Just another work day of getting through some paperwork and continuing to clear up my desk. Love that my new computer takes up so much less desk real estate! Since I didn’t work out last night due to all of the shoveling I am planning to head to the gym tonight for some more treadmill work, bum exercises, and another attempt at deadlifts. We will see how this throat/sinus thing plays out…if I’m hurting then I may switch from treadmill to yoga instead. Have to be feeling tip top for my breakfast with the blog girls tomorrow morning!
