It was GORGEOUS outside today!
I stepped outside and it was WARM! It actually got up to 74 Degrees (F) here in my little town!
It was a wonderful spring day with just a bit of a breeze!
I went for a 4.5 mile walk outside, and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it! I stopped to chat to one of our neighbors right at the beginning, and said a brief greeting to the neighborhood bike rider as he whizzed past me. He's retired and puts in something like 27,000 miles a year on his bike just riding around the neighborhood. He is in very good shape and is an inspiration to get outside and just DO IT!
#StreakingintoSpring Day 15 complete, but I need to log it in still!
I came back from my walk and managed to catch my friend in Japan online! WooHoo for conversations with a 14 hour time difference! It was awesome to get to talk to her and she is jealous of our fantastic GA weather. She is currently wearing a sweater and huddled under blankets with the portable heater and kettle on as she grades papers for her students... poor girl!
St. Patrick's Day is this weekend... and I don't have set plans. I may go up to see the Atlanta Parade... I may not. I think I'm more excited about next weekend being the Cherry Blossom Festival in Conyers, GA.
I haven't been before, but I'm told that it's a fun weekend event worth going to several times... so I want to go and take oodles of pictures! You are forewarned! But I will still wear green and find some way to celebrate this weekend!
Do you have any plans for this weekend?
I cooked a nice dinner of lean pork chops, white rice, lima beans, and mandarin oranges... I probably should have put together a salad, but since I wouldn't eat much of it, I didn't see the point. I'm just not that big of a salad eater. I've been working on it, but it's slow progress with that.
Tomorrow is interval day again. Weather.com says tomorrow will be mostly sunny with a high of 75 and 0% chance of rain! Lovely again! I'm wearing shorts again today and probably will tomorrow! I love warm weather!
Yesterday and today, after dinner was eaten I've been getting hungry. I drink water...and I'll be okay for 5 minutes, then I'm hungry again. So I had a snack yesterday, and if my stomach doesn't settle down after another glass of water, I'll probably have one tonight, too. So no streaking in that regard. But I'm on my 17th consecutive day of doing at least 10 minutes of exercise! I'll take it!
