Weather or Not

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

It seems that lately I've been making excuses and blaming the weather for my lack of ambition for exercise. I don't have much in the way of equipment to substitute in cases of all day rains or storms. Winter is no problem, because I love being out in the snow whether it is just walking through the fields around our home or cross country skiing.

But it's summer and our weather has been, well, poopy! Rain occurs at least every other day and I haven't completed a walk that has been more than 2 miles in over 2 weeks. My sister and I met at on of our local parks in town, the most beautiful of all of our parks and spent about 30 minutes walking and talking and it was wonderful. My goal for the rest of the summer is to walk, rain or shine. I will not walk storm or shine, I'm not silly, but I can walk in the rain without the dog, of course. She's a wimp in the rain.

So, this is my required blog about my excuses for not exercising. What's your excuse? Do you have one?

    I don't have many as If I did, I'd never go out in Montana weather. I've also learned that all exercise feels great when you're done, even if it's just a short time, even if it's inside. Last winter I used some of the spark videos from this site to keep me going! Keep at it!

    Well, my first question is where are you from? What part of IL.?
    As for my excuse-- I don't have one. I just skip out. I try to sometimes, but they are never good enough for me to believe. The rain is crappy. I have suffered from the same issue.
