The Remains of Winter.

I had honestly thought it would all be gone by now.

I thought we'd be cleaning out the garage and building frames for raised beds and planning paths and chopping up left over tree trunks by now. You know.

Oh well.

It was minus 30 degrees for at least thirty days in this city this winter.
I guess we got the high efficiency furnace just at the right time!

Day 1

I finally did it.

I stopped waiting for the weather to improve (minus 21 C. at the moment).

I've been reading all kinds of "diet" books and I kept coming back, you guessed it, to exercise. Without it, once I'm putting healthy stuff into my body, what I eat, when I eat it, and how much I eat is never going to make one whit of difference to the size of my derriere. So, a bit of research, here and a request to the library there and it is done.

Let me just say I'd forgotten how wonderful endorphins truly are. And, even better, both kids did the one mile with me.

Twenty minutes.

That's all.

1 largish whole wheat Tortilla spread with

1/2 tsp (or so) humus, covered in

fresh spinach leaves, smothered with

grated carrot, topped with

sliced green pepper and

mushroom and

roasted ham, drizzled with about

1/2tsp Newman's Own Italian Dressing, "Balsamic Vinigrette."

Roll it.

Eat it.

Don't let it go.
