Walking in the early spring! on March 22, 2012 2:32 pm
Wow! I just got back from taking an hour-long walk through my neighborhood. Spring came super-early to my zone 7 garden & its surrounds. Tulips that usually bloom in mid- to late-April are wide open. I've lived in the Washington DC metro area my whole life (born in DC) & I have never seen such early blooming. The trees are fabulous with their big fluffy snowballs of tiny flowers. The redbuds are starting to burst open too.

Great walk for me. Walked for one hour (my longest since my surgery 3 weeks ago) at a fairly steady pace (not the slow shuffling I've been doing since my RNY). I was dripping with sweat when I got home. I tell you, spas are great, but my humble shower became the most expensive hydrobath today! I had a nice coolish shower & followed it with a body splash from Spain (agua de colonia) that I adore (super-light scent). Then I turned on my ceiling fan & closed my eyes. Ah!
Got 50% of my protein in already today. Struggled with that yesterday. Just wasn't hungry enough for it. So when I got up I made up my shake & down it went. Took all my supplements so far too.
Tomorrow's Friday! Even though I'm not working right now, I still adore Fridays. Meeting my BFF for an early dinner. I can't wait! I've been such a hermit since my surgery. Hope all my OH friends are doing wonderful today!
