I think I have been witness to one of the craziest weather systems ever. On Saturday it was 70 degrees here and I was out cleaning the yard in short sleeves. I had my granddaughter all day and we enjoyed the day outside and even went downtown to look at the shops. The wind picked up later that evening and we woke up Sunday to snow cover. It snowed all day yesterday and thankfully the ground was warm enough for it not to accumulate on the roads or we would have had a mess to deal with. It is now thunderstorming. lol

Just a few days until spring. I hope the weather gets in gear and cooperates.

I was supposed to start a math class this week but dropped it. I decided that I need to eliminate some stress right now and that class made the list. When things calm down around here (hopefully this summer) I'll take that class.

I have cross fit class this evening.

What's everyone else up to?

Good morning :)  Let me just say again how glad I am to be back! 

Wow, that is some crazy weather.  We've got snow on the ground here and its been about 15 degrees lower than our average for this time of year.  I'm so ready to get outside - this stuff is killing me. 

I actually took the day off today.  It feels weird!  I normally teach 3 group fit classes and 2 reformers on Mondays, so I definitely need to make up for those workouts - I like my Mondays, but I needed today to get some stuff done.  I've got some household things I need to do like closet organization and the big TOSS - donate or get rid of stuff I havent worn or used in a year.  I also need to get to the grocery store today and then do some food prep for the rest of the week. 

I think my game plan is this:  Try a video from Amazon on Demand - those give me good class ideas sometimes, maybe Jari Love.  Then I'll do hills on the stairmaster - just bought a new one :)  Might be cool to find a yoga class on groupon or something, I never get to do that!

Ok - do tell about this Brazillian blow out!  I have incredibly curly hair - I'd love to know the scoop.  Take pics!

Wow Karla, that's a pretty bizarre temp change.  Reminds me of the Midwest.  Although, I have to say, Phoenix is starting to mirror other places more and more with radical temperature changes.  

I am off today.  I am getting a Brazilian Blowout this afternoon.  My new stylist piqued my interest and I got my mom to get it for me as an early birthday gift.  Planning to do strength training this morning.  We had a great weekend but it kicked my butt energy-wise and I am still recovering.  :)
