Tess, Cold weather-and Goal!

Friday, January 03, 2014

This is Tess-the resident German (as in Shepherd)-with Blasto-
We are in her 5th month of treatment--- Here she is with Coal-her side kick-(who is well by the way)-

It is minus 41.3C here right now-Youza!--That is colder (so I hear) than the South Pole-AND the North Pole----Himself left a tap running last night---We are on a ""well"-This afternoon , the temperature is supposed to go UP-to just under our zero--but---then ""SNOW".... 10-15 cm of snow---
When it is this cold, the Germans can't stay out long----so--they travel upstairs and downstairs (a 4 level house)-all day--as I do housey stuff!

My weight is UP a half a pound---but-----I know why----I ate a BLT at McDonalds--which is full of salt----
So-----I continue with my goal here---to get to ONEDERLAND by March 1st-
The weekend is near-----It could be a problem----but---I won't allow that---

    I would LOVE all your stairs! And think of the body heat they generate! That's my kind of house! We have a ranch with a basement...so I go up and down those stairs as often as I can just for the exercise. Tess and Coal are beautiful...just like Mom! emoticon

    Guess I could come to your house. Sounds like you have enough stairs to stay trim. Stay warm!

    I love the Germans, in England they are called ALSATIONS, I assumed they would like the cold..

    With four stories, emoticon emoticon emoticon exercise should be easy to get to. Well done and Thanks Pat in Maine.

    Just checked the celcius to farenheit conversion chart -40c is also -40 F.
    Just means that DARN COLD is DARN COLD no matter what!

    Keep warm and safe.

    It is Friday and time for fitness. emoticon

    It is also cold here, although not as cold as where you are. I can't remember when it has been this cold in the winter here!! Got spoiled with the milder winters we have had in the past few years!! We had 8 inches of snow so far and it is still snowing but supposed to stop sometime today!! UGGH!!!!

    So it looks like my exercise today will be helping my himself (if he ever gets out of bed) shovel the walk and driveway and maybe if I have any energy left the treadmill!! I am with you on the weight loss!! I still have to get off this regained weight!!!

    Love the pics of Tess and Coal. Someday I will have to upload pictures of Indy and Menlo although Menlo is afraid of the camera. And what isn't he afraid of??? He is just not very brave but a total sweetheart!! Actually both of my doggies are!!! The third one is supposed to come for a weekend tryout sometime the end of January. Son is going away to snowboard with his girlfriend for their birthdays (hers was yesterday, his is the 10th) and the following weekend we are moving younger daughter into her new apartment. So it has to be later in January. I don't know how my two old dogs will react to this massive 3 year old Mastiff hence the tryout. It will be my son's dog and he has been informed that he has to pay for his dog food, feed and walk him and generally take care of him.......translation Mom will end up doing it!! I am already crazy with two dogs who never go out at the same time, want to eat at the same time or do anything else together at the same time!! I think it is a doggie conspiracy to whip me into being fit with all the up and down letting them in and out!! emoticon

    Have a great day!!!
