Hard core shovelling 1:10:00 
Holy cow, did we get dumped with snow! At least another 20-25 cm on our driveway and walkways, which I tackled ferociously after a fun loop of the woods with Francis pushing the big snow scoop to make a trail, and me and Hazel running along after him. So fun!
I worked at using the shovelling with the big scoop as my cardio (and strength!) workout for the day. This was a solid, consistent, continuous effort, so no holds barred. Cold (-19C) with a -30C windchill, but gorgeous if you're moving and keeping the blood flowing. I felt so much better today - so I guess I now know that it takes me 3 days to recover from conscious-sedation colonoscopy. Good to know!
Man, it was fun shovelling that fluffy powder snow! Much better than what we often have to shovel in life!!!

A longer routine, as this is my first workout of any type after the colonoscopy. It's taken a few days to bounce back from the prep and sedation. Wow, my body really didn't like that! But I'm glad I had it done.
Now it's time to ease back into the regular (haha - pun) routines.

Maintenance snow shovelling to pare down the layers on the driveway, steps, and walkways to prepare for tonight's forecasted snowstorm. Whew! Cold (-21C), but nice and invigorating :)
Woah. Really tired today, and gut is tweaking every few minutes (left side).
The most effort today is doing tons of laundry and getting ready for a movie outing tonight (Glass). Still drinking lots of water. Said no to Sandra for a walk - just not up for it :(
Really tired afterwards, and still loopy from the sedation. A few twinges in the gut every so often, and some bloating going on. I'm taking probiotics (Ultimate Flora brand) to try to replace my microflora. Focussing on tanking up on water. I can't seem to get enough! I guess that's normal.
Holy shit! (so to speak)
Started the purge-prep at 5:30, and ended it at 10:30. A few visits to the loo during the night as well. So... Even though I drank gallons of water, I'm likely still dehydrated and will be for a day or so. The fasting hasn't been too bad, as I tanked up on nutrients in the days prior to the event. Like training for a marathon! ... A TOILET marathon! Lousy sleep last night.
