Does that mean I need to duck again? Is there a snowball coming?

Chopper and PriFi, the snowballs will be hurled tomorrow. My shoulders are a bit stiff tonight.

Chief, shovelling snow is probably great exercise. Just remember that it can be dangerous to your health if you aren't in shape.

My heart, circulatory system, and bones are all in great shape. I keep active, though I can't swing a splitting mall like I used to. I am losing weight, and getting in better shape before I do get into such shape that I am in trouble. I look forward to shoveling as a way to get extra exercise. I'm also avoiding elevators. My goal is to get to about 150 lbs., and keep up a walking regimen, and lifestyle exercise rather than having to go to the gym. I enjoy walking a fishing stream. And to do that where I live, because the forest is so thick, and the landscape is rugged, you have to be in pretty good shape to do it, let alone wade a fast stream. Besides, how can you help a granddaughter or grandson fly a kite, or ride a dirt bike if you aren't in good shape. I did it with my kids, and will do it with my grandkids. If you can't enjoy life, then what's the use in living it. And for me, that joy comes from giving to my family, friends, and community, with a bit of fishing on the side for me.

Besides, what good is it to have created the world's best pancake recipe if I can't eat them once in a while? To do that, I have to be in better shape than I am now.

Glad to hear that you are in decent shape Chief. I agree, lifestyle exercise is more fun and easier to keep up.

Good for you cheif! It's wonderful that you are incorporating the outdoors & you have the option to have such beautiful surrondings to live a healthy lifestyle. My option here is the bike trails through town, which we do occasionaly on weekends. Our daughter (13) came to the gym with me tonight & worked with a trainer. In the spring she wants to get back into discus & she wants to build up more strength to be able to throw it further/harder. So, while she was doing that I got 35 minutes on the elliptical, 10 minutes on the bike then did some weights for 15 minutes. Feeling better now, looking forward to the pool tomorrow night.

Any chance of getting Daddy into this and making it a family affair?

I wish I could get him too. I have tried countless times. I told him what you wrote & he says then who would come home & clean the house & wash clothes, it's a back & forth thing between us, but I keep trying.

It would be another shared activity...at least you both would have the energy to do the housework with all of you pitching in.
