just breathe. if you can!

Monday, October 21, 2013

Yesterday I went for my walk, it was so so cold, so I wore blue jeans, not tight ones, and I dont usually do that.
I usually wear womens carpis by Danskin. Loose fitting and just below the knee.
But as the weather begins to get colder, I am going to be looking for alternatives, I have one pair of walking pants, that are way too long on me.
This seems to be a recurring theme with me in colder weather.
Anyway, for some reason, the jeans or the fact I hadnt walked in a week, or what, but I got so short of breath, I was struggling after 30 minutes.
When I got finished and sat in my car, I was actually gasping. Nothing dangerous, but just having to really breath down deep to get a good breath.
It wasnt from a hard walk or work out.
It was different today, I walked an hour and felt good and hoping to go again tomorrow.
The foot is a little sore, so I might have to watch that.
The weather is really showing its age, winter is here.
A friend in Wisconsin reported today that shes getting some snow.
So, I have stayed in control in my calories today and I am feeling pretty good.
A little tired, but, I am pulling the blanket up over me, watching the Voice and then hitting the bed early.
Hoping all of you had a nice Monday.

    It is difficult to get motivated when it is cold outside. The eliptical in the basement keeps me going during the winter months. But, here in NJ, we are still enjoying some warm fall weather. Stay warm and keep going when you can!
You can do it!

    I can relate to a couple of things in your blog.
1. ALL my pants are too long! I am 5 feet nothing and find it really hard to find good fitting pants even in petite size.
2. I exercise year round and quite often in the colder weather here in CT I have a hard time breathing at the start of my run or walk. It does get easier with every cold weather work out.
Keep up the good work!
