Molly’s FitBits: Winter Work

56 days of commitment!

I feel like I’m beating a dead horse here, but it’s really darn cold. It keeps being really darn cold. Here in Ontario, it seems that whenever the temperature gets above about -15, we get enough blowing snow that you still wouldn’t dare go outside. Where it’s not slippery it’s slushy, and it’s not showing […]
