A Snowy Winter Wonderland

Christmas morning brought a light snow to Mass, which was delightful because I really have missed the snow. It also begged the question, “What would have Brent done if it didn’t snow??” I guess we will never know!

Last night, brought the biggest snow of the season…about 6-7 inches. FUNNN. So the street is officially a little winter wonderland. The first big snow of the season is always a fun one because it hasn’t gotten annoying or brown yet.

I didn’t really get up early enough to get the crazy pretty pictures when all of the snow is still clinging to the branches. It looks amazing. But, the real excitement was Oreo seeing snow for the FIRST TIME EVER! She has always been a Florida puppy so I was pretty excited to see what her reaction was going to be. She is a bit of a nervous nelly and my bet was that she would go on a barking rampage. Nope.

Check out that snow bunny! She ran straight out into the snow and the two of them went WILD.

Bacon can’t seem to get enough of the snow. It’s like he was born to run around in it. Oreo did have a it of trouble because it came up to her chest in some areas…which made walking around a bit more difficult. Annnd full speed face plants a little more plausible.

She loved it though and I had the best time watching the two of them run around in the snow.

After snow festivities, Brent and I headed to the gym because I am determined to get this booty into photo taking shape. It’s been a little while since we have had the time to get a workout in and I was itching to get back there. I started it off with a 3 mile run that I ended up finishing in just over 25 minutes. I was really really happy with that because I was starting to feel winded as I was unpacking things and was really expecting the worst.

After the run, I tackled a quick little arm circuit to get back into everything. The shoulder press was a bit of a struggle for me towards the end, but then again…that’s never really been a strong point for me.

Arm Toning Circuit

Tomorrow, the plan is a leg circuit…and I feel some box jumps and lunges coming on. Fun Fun!! Then, I am going to start incorporating some full body circuits. I really wanted to ease myself back into the circuit training and so that is the plan.

Next, cookie baking and relaxing.
