It's amazing how the change in weather can make someone go from grumpy/blues to excited/happy in a matter of hours!
Here in Worcester, MA, we got teased with "spring weather" since the end of January. I think I shared on here that the last day of January here was 60 degrees! And then we got dumped with 3 feet of snow the following week.
That pattern continued all through February and most of March. Spring weather. Snow. Spring weather. Snow.
You get the picture.
After awhile, the snow/cold/dark/cloudy weather gets us down and brings out the ol Cabin Fever issue.
I don't think I've ever had such a hard time dealing with the weather as I have this year.
And, ironically enough, I think that has a lot to do with the fact that I started running last spring, and so I wanted to start again. My new healthy lifestyle got me into a slump towards the end of winter because I was CRAVING the outdoor exercises that I can't do in the winter, due to knee surgeries/screws, etc.
And now, it looks like *knock on wood* SPRING is FINALLY here!!! The 10 day forecast on my weather app looks GORGEOUS! Only two days this coming week high 30s/low 40s, the rest of the week upper 40s-mid 50s!
I've already gone out for 2 runs this season (well, technically 3, but the one I did in January wasn't even close to being Spring yet, we just had Spring-like-weather, so I went.
I feel more energized. I think a lot of that also has to do with my new routine, which I wrote about the other day.
The sun in shining! The air is warm! I am walking to work today! Tomorrow is Easter! It's Spring Week for our theme at Preschool this coming week! Life is Good!
