I'm trying something new today.  I've been in an exercise slump and I have felt fatigued and unable to focus during the day.  So....I'm trying this:  10 minute increments. 

I know, it's not anything revolutionary.  But it's new to me.  And it may pose issues for my February project if I'm at various levels of "sweaty" all day long....but I need to get moving.  And this is the best way I know to pull it into my crazy busy schedule. 

So far today, one increment down.  ( was 12 minutes).  I ran for 5 of them.  It felt good to get my muscles moving again.  I have some 10 minute solutions saved in my Netflix que too, so I'm looking forward to jumping into those as well. 

A promise to myself:  2 increments a day - NO MATTER WHAT.  3 is a bonus.

I see a little Love Shack Just Dance fun at lunch time today.  :)


Ok, onto the fun stuff.

1. How often do you shave your legs in the winter?

Once a week....Sunday mornings.  I'm a creature of habit.  :)

Summertime means more shaving, but in the winter?  Once a week is enough.  I need that extra insulation!

2. Valentine's Day cards for your spouse: funny or romantic?

I actually already have D's card.  I was at Meijer sans boys the other day and thought it was a good time to get one (the ability to read the card is key here....with kids= no reading). 

The romantic ones were sooooo sappy!  GAH!  Even the funny ones were on the sappy side.  I finally found one that suits us, though.  It was funny.  He'll get a kick out of it.

If I could find a romantic one that fit us, I'd probably get that as well....but they just don't fit.

3. What are you most looking forward to about spring?

Walking with Michelle!  It's a highlight of the week...and I burn calories.  I'm a fair-weather walker...which means (short of unexpected hail), I'm not out in the chilly elements.

Ohhhhh!  Here's another!

We're hoping to tear down the Love Shack this spring!  I know!  Exciting!  I'm actually hoping that by writing this on the blog, I'm not jinxing myself here......but we're hopeful that sledgehammers will swing sometime before June!  Whoot!

4. What's your favorite way to pamper yourself?

Haircut and highlight.  There's just something so wonderful about good hair.

5. Does your tax return go into savings or do you spend it instantly?
See #3, part 2.  :)  Love Shack, baby!

Good luck on the "love shack".

That does it. I'm buying Just Dance 3. Only because I love yelling, "TIIIIIN ROOF! Rusted."

We always go for the funny cards. I think it's just how we are. Not tacky funny or rude and gross funny. Just funny. Hey, did I say that we buy funny cards that are funny?

Also. We're supposed to shave our legs in the winter? Well, crap.

While I'm sitting in church tomorrow, I'll know what you'll be doing. Thanks for that.
