Wow is it cold outside! We are experiencing the coldest temperatures in years, as most of you all are I assume, too! The first school that I sub for called it off today at 12:00 yesterday, and the rest of the districts around closed shortly after. Though I would rather be working right now to make money, I’m all about staying inside and snuggling with my Benny.
I just wish Aaron was home and didn’t have to make the long trek to work, and go to his grad school class tonight. Definitely not fun, but I hope everyone stays safe in the weather out there!
It was actually the warmest yesterday early in the morning. We had a beautiful snow fall, so I shoveled our driveway a bit before I headed into school (I had a two hour delay yesterday, too), and the temps dropped quickly after that. The wind chill started dropping, and the wind picked up immensely. By the time I was on bus duty, it felt like –8, and continued to drop all night.
I’m not going to lie, I went outside just to feel the temps. With the windchill, we were down to –30F! Aaron and I also threw water into the air to see what happened.
It actually worked! The water froze while in the air.
While it’s freezing outside, that doesn’t mean we have to stay cold. This week’s workout will be sure to make you sweat. It will warm you up pretty fast, and leave you dripping sweat by the end. I did this one on Saturday, and though it’s a basic HIIT, it’s fantastic, and reminds me I need to incorporate HIIT into my workouts some more.
I used the treadmill, but it could certainly be done using any cardio equipment!
I hope everyone is staying safe and warm! If you don’t need to go out, I suggest you don’t!
If you need me today, I’ll be cuddled under the heated blanket, with some Benson loving, and a fresh cup of tea.
I made a wife mug, and Aaron has a husband mug. Cheesy, but I love it.
