Open or Closed?

Today’s 44 was a lunge but because I held a dumbbell overhead (15 pounds) I also got some nice core work.

I counted a right and left as 1 rep so it was a total of 88 lunges while holding the 15 pounds overhead!!!

I did The Biggest Loser 8 Minute DVD – this is actually an hour because there are 7 total sections.  I like the format – each section is 8 minutes and you do 11 different moves for 30ish seconds followed by a 10 second rest.  Plenty of strength work but you will also get your heart rate up!

I’m planning to go outside for a run later today – it is supposed to get into the mid-70s!!!  Can’t wait!!!!

Curtains, blinds, shades – whatever window coverings you have – do you open them every day or keep them closed?

With the time change it is still dark outside right now but I have already opened up the house for the day.  I love to have natural light and by the time I get back from taking the boys to school it will be light!!!

Lately, driving around, I’ve noticed that lots of people keep their house closed up during the day – every single window is covered.

If our blinds were down, I would miss scenes like this gorgeous sunset from the other night when it was too cold to be outside.

And, much as I’m not a fan of the snow and gray days, I still want to be able to see outside when I’m hibernating!!!

So, are you an open or closed kind of person???

Happy Monday!!!
