Jacketless Gratitude


Thursday, January 02, 2014

I know that much of the county, including many of my SparkFriends, are experiencing really cold weather today. I feel for you. But that's not happening here in central Florida as our high today is about 81 degrees. The Senior Dance is held in a lovely facility that is usually a very comfortable temperature. However, today it was hot. It made me really glad that my weight is good and I could take off my jacket without embarrassment. There were many years I would have suffered rather than shown off my fat rolls. Incidents like this help me remember, be grateful for my health and fitness, and vigilant about maintaining!

    It was -23 C here today -- so I as wearing a jacket. However, gotta say that it's still nice to know that if the weather permitted I would also feel comfortable jacketless. And I sure identify with those memories of suffering overheating so as not to display the fat rolls. It's all motivating!!

    Yeah, here you need a coat, gloves, scarf, stocking cap, thermal underwear and snow boots. That might look a bit odd on the dance floor. Enjoy the wonderful weather and thanks for thinking of us who are waiting for spring to arrive. HUGS!

    I love living in Florida. I will warn you though, it's going to be pretty chilly in the morning. Not compared to the rest of the country, but compared to what we're used to! I'm going to Bok Tower Gardens tomorrow and plan to dress WARM!
