Hibernating sucks!

My food compulsion has reached big fat squirrel proportions so I'm going Kashi. If you wnat to talk colon clensing and buttcamp Susan can direct you. Kashi GoLean has a rotor rooter like effect but only after it's hot air balloon effect. After about three days you are back to normal, and it normally curbs my hunger and I direct my eating more than my impulses direct my eating.

It is a frigid 19 degrees right now with 30-40 mph sustained gusts-Mn kids learn to factor windchill in preschool. We got a smattering of snow, an insult in the face of predicted 6-8 inches, but we got cold. It's suppose to warm up next week for Thanksgiving, just in time for the "run a 5K with 10,000 other people through the crowded streets of Minneapolis on Thanksgiving morning" run aka Arean 5k. This will be my 11th running of the Turkey and Hyphen Girl is going in and doing the race this year. I used to feel like a a 5k was license to stuff myself silly later in the day, now it's just a warm up. If I didn't have to make the turkey I'd be tempted to run into downtown, then do the race. If I got up at 5, I could do that. Now we're talking seconds!

I have recess duty today-I am going to die. I have almost no insulation left, I'm freezing all the time-time to paint on that permanant long underware-added incentive for poor Tridaddy to take me to Arizona in January-the promise of skin :)

Going downstairs to go dig out the snow pants, boots, mittens etc

We didn't get much more here in LaCrosse. But the cold is here. Check out my post today. I was busted by the Illinois Bornder Patrol!!!! Stay warm. Isn't it great that you can work out with your kids. My daughter is also doing the Turkey Trot with me this year and wants to do the Fat Tire Ride in Hayward next year.

brrr... stay warm. now i see why when we flew through st. paul and i said "oh, it is so pretty here." my husband said "and cold! don't ask to move here!" :)

i'll have to try kashi. i'm all about frosted shredded wheat for my "cleansing". the kids eat it too...so hey, whatever.

It's been bitterly cold here too. I don't care if it happens every year, I hate it!

I've always thought it funny how people give them selves a "license to eat" after a 5K run on Thanksgiving. The whipped cream on that pie alone defeats that :)

Yuck, Hibernating in full force already, Hello trainer and treadmill! :(

But, if you focus during your swim workouts, the pool transforms to a tropical paradise!
