Hello Winter!!!



Winter arrives at 11:49 p.m. EST tonight and the darkest time of the year is almost behind us with daylight starting to lengthen tomorrow - even if it's only for a few seconds at the beginning, pretty soon we'll be noticing it getting brighter in the evening - woohoo!!!

"I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

'We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,'
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December."
~ Oliver Herford, I Heard a Bird Sing

Now that's good news!!!

Hello December!!!



Wow, we say it every year at this time, where did the year go?? Yup, we're into the last month of 2015 and even though it's the month of "good cheer" with lots of diversions let's still give it our best shot and continue to strive to work toward our healthy living goals - indeed it's the best gift we can give ourselves!!!

Tonight ...



In the Northern Hemisphere - Eastern Daylight Time



This combo hasnít happened in 32 years, and isnít scheduled to take place again until 2033.

NASA explains it nicely at:

It's quite safe to view the lunar eclipse with the naked eye, so enjoy!!!

Hello! After a lengthy hiatus, I dusted off my Gazelle today and hopped on for 15 minutes. I forgot how fun it is, and how good it feels!

Grandkids are finished school and we're all getting ready to go up to the lake - my two sons will return to the city for work off and on - but the rest of us will be staying at the cottage for six weeks. Sure hope this weather warms up as I hope to get in lots of swimming.

WTG Cat, but don't undersell the benefits of doing housework.

"Cleaning the House
Unless you're lucky enough to have a housekeeper, most of us probably have cleaning on our to-do lists. Instead of seeing it as a chore, start thinking of cleaning as a serious double-duty workout. Simple and easy cleaning, such as dusting, taking out the trash, straightening and changing the bed linens, can burn up to 170 calories per hour for a 150-pound person. And heavier duty tasks such as sweeping the floor, washing windows and cleaning the garage can burn more than 250 calories an hour.

To up that calorie burn even more, get creative! When scrubbing the bathtub, take fewer breaks, and scrub extra hard to work your muscles (don't forget to switch arms). While vacuuming, add some lunges instead of letting your arms do all the work. When cleaning the stove, don't just bend over; squat down to get to those hard-to-reach places. When doing laundry, use the bottle of detergent as a dumbbell and do a few bicep curls on your way out of the laundry room. Or sneak in a few push-ups on the kitchen counter before you start scrubbing. The opportunities when cleaning are endless, and how awesome is it to have both a fit body and a clean house?"

WooHoo Cat - that was indeed a good day!! Perhaps you can go a bit easier on yourself today not to overstress those muscles though.
