Adjusting with the seasons

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

I'm finding it hard to adjust with the seasons......I know I walked outside all Winter long and Spring last year but, I cant remember my schedule...all I know is this Summer I had to be up and walking by 6 am otherwise it got to hot for me to walk until late in the evening. So that is what I am used to doing getting out of bed and getting a good portion of my steps out of the way first is now 11:30am and it's not going to get much warmer then the 46 degrees it is now so I should head out but, I find myself wanting to just take a nap! I know if I just get off my butt I will feel GREAT but, I'm worried about how I'm going to talk myself into walking day after day.....It's silly thought because I remember when Summer hit I was disappointed that I couldn't just walk when I felt like it because it was too Hot....I need to move to San Diego so I can walk anytime of the day!

Second issue I'm having is that I have started enjoying experimenting with cooking especially during the Winter months and I find myself getting frustrated with logging new recipes...I just don't want to log.....some might say then don't but, I have that all or nothing mentality if I don't log everything I will eat like crap and too much all I personally have too which is keeping me from making new yummy things emoticon .......

Well I guess the answer is stop being lazy ...go for a jog and come back and log my new recipe!

Once I figure it out I need to blog about it so that next October it isn't so traumatic! emoticon

    The cold weather does make it super hard. You could always try to find an indoor track, or get in some treadmill time. It's not as enjoyable as outside but it gets the job done.

    I hope you're out walking/jogging. I'm tempted to call you and make sure that you are! You can do this! You can still do your morning workouts in the cold, can't you? Do I need to buy you a new set of headlights???

    I understand your frustration! I'm a winter person myself -- I can barely drag myself out of doors in hot Georgia summers.

    I do agree that you should log all recipes. It's a great benefit to know what's in your dishes and how the calories / carbs / fats / proteins add up.

    Keep up the good work! I'm cheering you on! emoticon
