Spring Is In The Air!

Edward and I spent the day out today… well yesterday technically since it’s 2:30 AM. We both took a long weekend this weekend because I had a lieu day that I wanted to take and I decided I didn’t feel like working Sunday so I took the day off and he ended doing the same. We went for a walk for almost an hour in Point Pleasant Park which is a large park in the south end of Halifax by the port. The view from it is beautiful, a view of the mouth of the Halifax harbour which is one of the worlds deepest natural harbours. The second I think (maybe the first?).

I took a few pictures with my phone but unfortunately they didn’t turn out to well so I didn’t bother uploading them. We walked for 58 minutes and walked 3.30 km. We were just walking really slow and stopping to admire the view and take pictures which is why we didn’t go very far distance wise. It worked out to 5981 steps and 288 calories burned. In total I actually managed to get 10,154 steps in. I have my goal right now set to 7500 steps, need to work my way up to 10,000 and beyond. I am really proud of myself I have met my goal every day this week.

It was a beautiful day out and reached 19°C and was nice and sunny. Maybe a bit of a cool wind down around the harbour but it was still nice enough I only had on a t-shirt and capris. I am so happy that spring is here. Now all we need to do is try and get our all season tires back on. We put it off because it really seemed like winter was never going to end. We had 4 storms over 10 days just the beginning of this month. Tomorrow (today technically) is supposed to rain like 20m but still get to 14°C, then Sunday is supposed to rain 5-10mm in the morning, clear up for a cloudy but 17°C afternoon. I am hoping to get Edward out driving. He is working on getting his license, he finally has his learners.

I have been thinking that I want to start some sort of project online maybe a clique or forum for diabetics or some sort of site where we can share stories, share recipes and support each other. I know there are tons of sites, blogs, etc out there and I really do want to try and do something a little different. I’m not sure what yet but I guess I will keep thinking on it and see if I can get some ideas. I don’t know maybe something more local, for people here in Halifax and Nova Scotia, some sort of support group/website.

  1. Hi Kirsten, I’m glad to see you are having some nice spring weather. I’ve heard of Point Pleasant somewhere – in a book or film or such. Good luck with your diabetes project. I’m thinking something similar, not to create it but to find it – since I just have had verified (after years or suspecting it) that I have ulcerative colitis and have been looking for good forums, support groups or such but haven’t really found any.

    1. Point Pleasant is an old fortress so it might have been in a book or film maybe no sure. It’s beautiful. I know years ago I have done a post with pictures of it not sure exactly when.

      I looked arou d for some diabetes forums as well but it seems to be all geared towards type 1 even though type 2 is much more common. it’s hard to find anything and just not sure I want to create one but maybe something local it’s hard to find local support groups and such.
