Hot, Humid, Exhausted, & Motivated

Monday, July 15, 2013

This heat is crazy. Up to 97. After spending the afternoon outside in this heat, coming home, doing errands, washing two loads of dishes, and making dinner, I was exhausted. So much so that the last thing I wanted was to go outside in this mugginess and walk with my friend, no offense to Melinda. I wasn't motivated at all. In a last ditch effort to get myself motivated to do something, I looked at my wedding pics. That was enough. I popped in Just Dance 4 on the Wii. It has a nice feature called Just Sweat which involves workouts. Right now there is no way that I can do the C25K (I was repeating week 3) in this heat. As much as I want to be healthy I do not wish to bring on a seizure by dehydrating myself. Been there, done that. Anyways, back to Just Dance. I did 40 minutes worth of dancing and I was sweating... and stinking. So, long story short, I was able to get in a great workout without killing myself in this heat. Don't get me wrong, I love working out in the elements. A nice hike on a hot, humid day (particularly one that ends at a creek) is a favorite of mine, but I think 2 hours outside in this earlier was enough for me.

    Good for you! You got a workout in and that's what counts!
I know how you feel about working out outside. Right now I am doing my c25k training at home. It is working well and I am happy with it!
Once it gets cooler I will take the activity outside!
