The temperature in Chi-town will reach the 40s today! yahflippinhoo! I have heard talk that there is grass that grows from the ground and sidewalks. I have not seen these things they speak of but that's the word on the street!
I know this weather is temporary but I choose to think spring. I'm fighting cabin fever, work stress and family health issues. How do you fight all of those things? With healthy foods, proper sleep, exercise and faith that one day spring will come again.
Kickboxing workouts are a great way to relieve stress. I like Coach Nicole's quick kickboxing workouts when I'm pressed for time. I also like venturing over to Youtube.com for the Exercise TV 10lb Slimdown Cardio Kickboxing workout. Nothing like picturing the thing that is stressing you and throwing a punch or kick at it!
24 days until my local St. Patrick's day 5K
28 days until Spring
Fun spring facts....
Spring is the season of flowers. The Japanese celebrate the arrival of spring by hosting mass viewings of Cherry Blossoms.
In the Persian calendar, the first day of spring (or New year Day) is called Nowruz.
Baby birds learn to sing. They are born with the ability to sing but must learn the songs of their species. This is thought to happen betwen 10 - 60 days of age and begin to sing them the next spring when they have matured to about 300 days old.
Let's wrap this up with a little delight from the Disney movie Bambi - "Let's sing a gay little Spring Song"
