4/02/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal- Thursday

This picture was pretty funny from my trip.  This was me really wanting to buy one of these carmel apples...but I resisted, and I felt good with that choice.

I must admit I am itching for spring to come.  We have gotten a dridiculous number of inches of snow this year.

I am yearing to walk outdoors.  I want to jump on the trampoline with the kids without snow pants on.  I want to bike on the street.

Biking, for me, is very peaceful.  It does for me, mentally, what yoga does for others.  It burns about 470 calories in 60 minutes ( obviously that number is varied on hill vs. flat).  It gives me very similar endorphin buzz that I get sfrom SPinning.  I feel the same about biking.  I find it stresses my joints less than running and that impacts me alot at my age ( 44 ).  But, most of all, I love it!

So, bring on spring!  Lets get out, and get going!!!!
