An Icy Friday . . .

Want to get a song stuck in your head? Ice, Ice Baby! Knoxville is having an ice storm right now! A few pictures:

They have declared a state of emergency in Tennessee. Luckily I have a fabulous boss who decided to close today instead of putting us in danger. Hubby is also home today. And this is in the fridge!


I am keeping all of my gadgets on charge on the chance we lose power sometime today (power outages have started being reported in the past half hour). There is a chance that hubby’s 10 mile race tomorrow morning will be canceled/postponed due to the weather. We are supposed to have a decision by 5PM.

Five for Friday

10 Reasons You’re Not Getting Results in The Gym by Tamara – Great tips to think about if you are not seeing any progress.

A Look at Weight Watchers 360 by Beth – I am a WW Lifetime Member and a former leader, so I am always interested to see what WW has come up with. Love the two new areas they are focusing on – Routines and Spaces.

Simple Crab Cakes by Abby – Not only do these look simple to prepare, they are only 100 calories per crab cake. Wish I had remembered this recipe BEFORE the ice storm. Could have made a great lunch today.

13 Legit Reasons to Start Bodyweight Training Today by Dave – No equipment and no gym needed for these. I am currently doing a plank a day and then we have started our squat challenge at the office.

25 Minute Treadmill Walking Workout by Julie – Julie created a great treadmill workout. The speed is consistent and the incline changes. The best thing is you can really adjust the speed to whatever your fitness level is.

That’s all for today. I am doing a little working, relaxing, organizing, reading, etc. Anything that keeps me INSIDE and out of the ice storm.

What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods? Any race plans for the weekend? Have you tried the new WW 360? Share a great blog with me!

Happy Friday!

  1. I’m in northern VA and we’ve been hit with some snow that turned to ice. Tons of fun.

    I am a lifetimer with WW, although I don’t use the plan anymore. My Mom is loving the new 360 plan though

      I am hearing a LOT of good things about the new WW360. Might just have to check it out! Thanks!

  2. Good morning Glenneth! I hope you are feeling yourself much better? I remember a couple of days ago you said you had a terrible head ache. Feeling better now?

    Thanks for sharing the pics. This reminds me of my day a couple of days ago. I was having a hard time trying to open the doors of my car. I tell you, it did not feel good!!! A friend of mine later that day told me that I should have bought some type of a spray that is used in situations like that. You basically use it to spray over the ice, and it will start melting immediately. I wish I had known about it earlier. At the end I obviously managed to get in the car. All is well that ends well as they say lol ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Confession time – I am SO guilty of scrolling through pictures, then going back and reading. My first thought was, “let’s take that ice and blend up a margarita, baby!!”

    It’s almost 5, so I hope a margarita is in order to celebrate – um, either that the hubby’s race is postponed, or that it’s still on, depending on what he’d rather do ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great (and hopefully well powered) weekend!
