I think I posted this song fairly recently, but no matter. Consider it a reprise.
Man oh man it is HOT!
We had, what was it? Four? Five? Whatever - it has been a lotta over 90 days. Today, we are going up to the low 80s. Hey, it'll be awesome!
Eh, who am I kidding?
But at least it's almost 9:30 AM and currently the a/c is off. Let's see how long that lasts.
And one thing I have in my head is the memory of similar heat waves past, back into before 2008, which is when I started sparking and started losing.
And I was HOT! And I was hot a lot more often and for a lot longer than I am these days. Those were days that I would lurch from the bedroom a/c to the computer room a/c to the TV room a/c and I would sleep a lot during the day because I just felt so godawful and I had zero energy.
You may be asking yourself how I have been handling this current heatwave.
Or maybe you aren't, but I will gladly ask that question for you. ;)
I'm doing okay. I have escaped to napping a little bit; sometimes, it really has been that brutal. But it took a lot more for me to cry uncle and really get to that point. I also went out and walked, either super-early or super-late, all days but one. And I strength-trained every single morning, including this one.
Did I lose weight? Nope, I gained, albeit not that much. But I think more importantly is that I was able to get through this like a lot less of a slug. The weather has been horrific but it also has not turned into a built-in excuse to just throw in the towel.
So, victory may not be mine, but defeat isn't, either.
And I will take that, so long as it's wrapped in a ziploc bag with a ton of ice, thanks.
