Today, I got a blizzard workout! I was thinking that an exercise DVD was in my future for this evening; however, my workout ended up being two hours of shoveling snow. It is the first time in my life I can recall getting an official blizzard where we live.
My husband had to call off work today because it was impossible to get out of our driveway. We waited until the winds died down in the afternoon to get busy on our chore of digging out of our drive. I'm off work until after the new year, so I was content with a foot plus of snow. That was until I realized he would be needing to go back to work today.
I must say the shoveling, sweeping, and pushing of snow was quite the workout. I had been slacking in the workout department due to so many activities surrounding the holidays. When we were finished getting both our vehicles out from the snow drift, my entire body was tired. It felt great at the same time: a good workout and an accomplished chore.
I also played outside with our kids. My daughter only lasted outside about ten minutes before she needed to go inside and have some hot cocoa. My son stayed out about 30 minutes and that was because of our dogs. It was such a fun afternoon outside with family.
