The weather took a turn back to winter so we're snowed in. Well, the snow isn't deep but it's 11 degrees with a 10 mph wind...that equals me being snowed in.
I have been struggling lately to get in much movement let alone any cardio being so stuck in the house. I am doing great however on doing about 30 minutes of toning a night...squats, leg lifts, arms, and some prenatal yoga (mostly running thru a sun salutation a few times to relieve stiffness from being a lazy bum).
Also, in the struggle department...and I'm sure it's causing some problems with my activity...moods. Ironically not my moods. I'm moody normally and a little off balance but, I've been extremely happy lately. Not everyone around me is sharing in my smiles and joy. The DH seems to have a serious case of "man pms" and asking to "talk about it" typically results in my mood then going wayyyyy out in left field therefore making it worse. Can't say I know what to do really because whatever is going on with him...obviously he has to change it.
Mostly though...I think winter is winning. It's been cold which makes him have more aches and pains. It's been cloudy which makes it dark in the house unless you turn on all the lights and we both despise wasting electricity if no one is using the light for a reason. It's been windy which makes our little place seem incredibly drafty despite how well we've winter-proofed it. I think he's really burnt out and has been too cooped up. This weather is hard to maneuver in when your mostly wheel chair bound and it's frozen or muddy...so while I bundle up and trudge thru the snow to check the mail, feed animals and soak up a touch of sun...he sits in the dark, under a blanket, and stews a little more....
Well...I wasn't really planning on venting. Mostly just recapping. I've got to get more active. It makes me happier and makes me feel better. Other people being happy and feeling better is beyond my control....because if I try to control that...I may go crazy.
