Why Nott Me: February 2006

Sunday, February 26, 2006

I haven't used my camera much this year, but I go
to the Observatory often to see their webcam. I
thought this was beautiful. It reminds me of what
an awesome God I serve. How beauty comes
out of even.. snow and cold!
We've been hiking three or four times a week.
Last Thursday was the coldest as the wind had
a bite to it! But we've got solid two and three
mile trails. I'm so excited. I'm really enjoying
being outside after been cooped up in a
windowless office all day.

We actually got a couple of inches of snow Saturday. I went on my
walk, I’ve been walking a mile a day. I’m hoping to push that up to
a mile and a half by the end of this week. I’ve just got to use our
GPS to determine how far to go. I walk in our woods and Saturday
during the snow was the best.
I’m trying to get back into shape. It’s frustrating at times, but
with asthma it’s an on going battle. My biggest goal is to stay off
the steroids. I learned last year that my asthma and running
doesn’t go together well. I really enjoyed the running;
unfortunately my asthma took a turn for the worse. It would
seem (according to the doctor) that while running I am inhaling
deeper therefore some of the outside allergies were getting
into my lungs. Humm… So I’m back to walking. I’m dealing
with the disappointment, because I’d really like to run. But I
have also decided that the weight gain from the steroid is a
good deterrent.
