  1. I like the looks of that coloring book! I have one also, and have spent up to an hour day in this cold weather using it. It’s quite intricate, and I love it, but I like yours too! I’ve switched from colored pencils to fine markers and will never go back. (Haha – you were probably not expecting a novel on coloring in the comments!)


    • It’s lots of fun, isn’t it? The last few nights I coloured, I had uplifting podcasts playing in the background. That made it even more enjoyable. I’m probably going to use fine tipped markers for my next page. There’s not a lot of stuff to colour on the next page (it’s mostly text) so it will be a good place to try them out. I only have about 10 markers.

      • Treat yourself to a pack of markers just for coloring! Mine are called Stabilo 30 pen 68, and they are heavenly. My niece recommended them and I love them – found them on Amazon.

    • Thanks. I can’t remember the last time I was ice skating. When we were kids, we had our own rink. All the kids in the neighbourhood used to come over to skate.

      One day this week, I spent an hour shovelling a path from the back door to the car before I left for the gym. It was “leg day”. On “leg day”, I normally jump on a stationary bike for half an hour after (because my legs won’t cooperate for any other sort of cardio after I’m done torturing them). I figured the shovelling was enough cardio for the day, so I skipped the bike.


      • Shovelling snow is definitely a good workout. I never train cardio at the gym, because I use my bike for commuting 5 day per week: the only cardio I do at the gym is 5 minutes warming up on the threadmill (which is utterly boring).
        You were lucky to have your own rink. I started ice skating as an adult, but I wish I started as a kid.
        Do you do weights too on leg day, or only the bike?
        If you lived around here, I would have invited you for a gym date!


      • Have you tried doing abdominal exercises as a warmup instead of walking on the treadmill? Just basic ab exercises (not advanced ones) are a much less boring and probably a more effective way to warm up.

        Really, you never skated as a kid? Have you taught your son to skate yet?

        Yes, I do weights on leg day. When I’m done with the leg weights, I bike. On upper body days, I run after I lift weights. There is no way in hell I could possibly run after my leg workout. I barely have enough strength left to climb the stairs when I get home.

        If I ever make it to Norway, I think it would be fun to workout together. It would be interesting to see which one of us is tougher. lol


      • I’ll definitely try abs as warm up, that’s a great idea! Glad to hear that you do weights on leg day: I was afraid that you only did the bike. The stairs up from the gym can be a killer afterwards, shaking legs and holding on to the rail. 😅
        I divide the upper body into parts, like: back & biceps (day 1), shoulders & triceps (2), then chest & stomach. When I don’t have time to go as often as I want, or if I haven’t been to the gym for a while, I do as much as I can in one session.
        It would have been great with a gym date – it can be boring to go alone sometimes, but you’d probably beat me. 💪


      • Speaking of shaking afterwards… I often take my 365 after I get home from the gym. Holding the camera still has become a challenge most days. Ever have that problem? Oh wait, never mind. I forgot I was asking the guy who shot a blog post while drunk on a bike. lol
