This winter has been so darn cold & so darn snowy, it’s really been insane. So far, 50 + inches of snow has been recorded this winter season in Chicago. More snow is expected this weekend. Why not?
There’s nothing we can do about it, so why complain? I can’t really embrace it, but I won’t complain either.
Yesterday after shoveling our walk & taking the boys to school, I stopped at my favorite fruit & vegetable store in the midst of the white out conditions. It was quiet, as nobody else was there. Whenever I go to this store, I love to stop by the juice counter for a wheat grass shot & a green smoothie.
For me, this is the greatest way to start my day! I love wheat grass. There are a gazillion benefits & believe it or not, I do enjoy the taste! I just dont’ really think that if I had a wheat grass press that I’d use it enough to make it worth while. Don’t get me wrong, I do think about getting one often. Do any of you have one? In the meantime, this is the next best thing, have a treat while I shop for produce!
So, I got a cart load full of produce & made a huge pot of vegetable soup.
While the soup was cooking, I went outside to shovel. I decided to shovel our parking spots in the street, as we hadn’t done that yet. My neighbor & I were outside for 1 hours. We did a pretty good job, but still had a hard time finding the curb, as there was sooo much snow. Then, it was time to go to the gym & I was already exhausted! I managed to get in 6 slow miles on the treadmill & also a few planks because I’m taking part in the Move Nourish Believe Blogger Challenge, @FitApproach @LornaJaneActive #sweatpink #mnbchallenge, and, I had to plank! So, planking is done! Running is done! Shoveling is done! I was exhausted in the afternoon & ready for bed at 6:00pm, which is a little earlier than normal for me. Don’t worry, I didn’t go to bed that early, I just wanted to!
