It’s [officially] winter now.

Lens-Craft Day No. 3

Though it has been snowing since the last week of November and the temperature has been terribly bitter night and day… it is only now that the winter season officially starts.

Though I hate winter because of the bad experience I had last year there is some aspect of it that I truly love. I love ice-fishing with Hubby. I love snowmobiling at the frozen lakes and ponds. I love snowshoeing outback. I love the postcard-perfect white landscapes of the rolling hills and valleys. I love the frosted pine trees after the snowfall. And most importantly, I love sipping hot cocoa with mini marshmallows by the fireplace.




Though I hate winter… I still don’t have a choice but to deal with it. I have to deal with the slushy, icy and slippery winter roads. I have to deal with the cold weather and freezing temperature. I have to deal with sore arms and feet from shoveling/scrapping snow on the driveway and on my car. And most importantly, I have to deal with weight gain due to hot cocoa.




So, during this winter season, Health Weight Loss is my major priority. There is nothing more important to me than to get fit and stay healthy... because winter it is!
