Shred Off That Extra Weight

Although my schedule at work is very tiring, I tried my best to go back to gym even 2-3 times a day. I need to sweat out whatever extra sugar and carbohydrates I ate every day. I love being on the treadmill especially that I can't jog outside since it is chilly. It is of different feeling every time I set my feet on the treadmill and do a 30-minute walking or jogging. Boy, it feels so good after doing it! I feel lighter and livelier!

When Spring comes, my mother-in-law and I plan to start walking or jogging outside. I guess we will be going back to our route before: the park. Oh, hubby will be with us also since he said he needs to shred off some weight also. Well, I will still go to the gym and do some weights and do walking/jogging every now and then in the park with my MIL or hubby.

Keep Yourself Warm

During winter, everyone should make sure they are properly shielded from cold when they go out and when they are home or at work. Wearing thick clothes, layers of clothes, gloves and hats are just some of the must-have clothes in your wardrobe to make sure you keep your body safe from cold. When home, make sure your heater is on, fireplace is lit or wrap yourself with your heated blanket. Being sick is very expensive especially in this economic meltdown so make to keep yourself warmth.

A Tornado Siren in the Silence of the Night

After a year and 9 months of being here in the US, I finally hear a tornado siren tonight. This happened just few minutes ago. There wasn't only one tornado siren that went off but around 4. The siren in our city didn't go off but our 3-4 neighboring cities did that is why we hear it so clearly. Hubby and I called Mom who lives 5 minutes away from us. I also called Ate Fe, a very good friend of ours to check if they are okay since their city tornado siren was one of those that went off. I was happy to hear they are all okay. I also called the hotel where I work to check with the front desk staffs how is everything going. I also told them to make sure they print a downtime report to make sure they have the updated reports ready in case situation gets worst. Fortunately, we only hear the tornado siren for less than 10 minutes because the tornado warning was lifted so quick due to the fast movement of the severe thunderstorm.
