Babysitting Wednesday was tiring and I got home around 8 so we didn't walk. Today I made brownies for Valentine's Day but we didn't do anything for it. Cyric and I are going crazy not getting in our walks. Tmrw looks just as bad. Wednesday the high is supposed to be 11, I think, which will be nice! I think the following week should be back up around freezing.

Vannie: Great workouts. These temps are crazy. We are staying at 0 with wind chills in the -20's. BRRR! This is an unusually long stent of this type of weather.

Cher: That is such wonderful news!

JB: Did you guys do anything for Valentine's Day?

Karen: Nice photo w/ your DH on FB.

Check in: Busy with the home closing on Tuesday. DD is chomping at the bit but with the weather and some deep cleaning we want done, they won't move in for a bit. Wedding plans are still limping along.

Check in:Workouts are meh. OK but not great. My core is SO weak. Definitely need to do something about it. I'm sure the extra fat around the middle doesn't help.

Visited the mausoleum today despite 4-5" of additional snowfall today and temps hovering between 0 and 3 degrees F today... the wind is bitterly cold. But I took DH a coffee and said Hi. I brought the LED Candle I had left at his graveside since right before Christmas home tonight. When we had snow last week they plowed off the walkway and I found it in a snow pile a couple of yards away from its typical location. They hadn't cleared the roads or walkways yet today, so I thought I would bring it home so they can clear snow and then I'll set it out again. It is glowing in the rec room right now.

Hope you guys all have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Hi everyone! Iím resting today. And itís pouring again but the sun is supposed to shine tomorrow. Thank goodness. Ran 8 miles yesterday.

Glad to hear from you again Gibbee. I was thinking about you yesterday on Valentineís Day and loved your beautiful FB post about Darrell. My heart aches for you.

I also cannot believe that weather Gibbee! Twenty below zero with wind chill. That is darn crazy. I have a friend who lives in Nebraska and itís about the same weather. Brrrr!! Glad you could close on the house.

Vannie I love hearing about your workouts. Youíre so varied! I bet you never get truly bored.

Jbliff we have finished the first rounds of vaccines in our office; i.e. we have given a lot of vaccinations, and since they were either Pfizer or Moderna, everyone we started with has had both doses. If has taken a lot of logistics and time and coordination and a few Saturday mornings to get it done. How are vaccines going in your area?

Hi Cher! Kareng

My workout yesterday was LIS Athletic Training + Total Body Stretching basic stretching segment. Sunday's workout was 45 minutes on the elliptical.

Karjoy - Vaccination is finally going well in Virginia. We were slow getting started but we're now in the top 10 states in terms of vaccination, with over 1M doses given. In addition to the local hospital, CVS is also going to start vaccinating people. Our case numbers are also down quite a bit from early January.

- I hope the weather warms up for you a bit. That is seriously cold! We didn't do anything for Valentine's Day. I gave DH a small present that I bought earlier and saved to give to him Sunday. He made me my favorite banana bread and forgot to put baking soda in so it was pretty dense, more like bread pudding. It was still good though.

Vannie - It must be seriously cold for you not to go for walks.

Hi to Cher. Have a good day, everyone.

Hi guys. I just could not face the cold wind outside so I tried a Peloton HIKE on the treadmill and had a blast. Their hikes are very hilly walks and I got my HR way up and I know I will feel it in my hamstrings. We started with 5% elevation and moved up to 15% except thankfully my treadmill just goes to 12% incline. Whew.

Jbliff I am glad your state is doing so well. We really can accomplish a tremendous amount when we all work together. I hear there are debates going again about just giving one shot and not the second to more people.

Gibbee, Vannie, and Cher, are you all frozen? I keep seeing pictures of Texans practically buried in snow, which of course they are not used to, and some parts of the state are without power. I hope they gets break soon.

Kareng and waves to Gwynn too

Drive-by over lunch hour: Hi, all! Hope everyone is doing well. Still frigid here. Won't be out of the deep freeze until Friday at the earliest.

Sunday was CTX Shoulders, triceps, biceps.

Monday was RAW Box & Pump.

No workout yesterday - didn't feel like it. I thought I would shovel snow but instead stayed inside until DD's home closing. Yesterday was four months. Really hit hard for some reason.

Today was Leslie's Happy Walk.

JB: Yum! Banana bread! My favorite!

Karen: The peleton hike sounds really neat. I'd die on it, though.

Vannie: I love how you keep track of your workouts.

Cher: How is Joseph liking the job?

I thought I posted this week but I guess not. Anyway, I have no motivation at all to workout! Every workout I do, Iím pushing myself to keep going EVERY SINGLE minute that I do it! I think itís this darn freezing cold weather we are having. Same temps as Gibbee & Vannie. Anyway hereís the little bit I did so far this week:

Monday - Jessica Smith 10 Minute Powered Up Walk and Cathe Lower Body Add-on.
Tuesday - Cathe Upper Body Add-on and helping DH shovel 10 inches of snow!
Wednesday- Leslie Tone Every Zone Fast Walk and Cathe Perfect 30 Yoga Strength & Flexibility Stretch premix.

Vannie - Good job with all those workouts.

Karen - Such a cute picture of you and DH on Facebook! Thatís great about the vaccines in your office. My parents go Saturday for their second one. I think things are about the same with it here.......people are still having a hard time getting appointments. On the plus side though, our Covid cases are back UNDER 1000 per day.

JBliff - That was sweet of DH to make you banana bread for Valentines Day.

Gibbee - Ugh, my core is so weak too. I should try doing something about that. Maybe when these temps start warming up, Iíll get more motivated. That is a nice idea you have with the candle. ((Hugs)) We wonít be out of the deep freeze until about Monday. Joseph seems to like his job and it seems to be going well. They let him work from home on Tuesday morning when we had the snow storm.....thank goodness!
