It's Cold but I Don't Care

Sunday, March 16, 2014

We live in one of the colder parts of the country. Looking at the weather maps on TV, I get discouraged seeing everybody else having nice walking weather.

Then I remembered the Spark person I was when I started in August 2012. I had a different moniker then, so you can't go back and look at my blogs if you wanted to. But I know I posted a blog that said no matter what the weather, I was going outside to exercise! I said "there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes." What happened to that girl?

Last night I thought, good grief, this is the perfect opportunity to walk! I wear long sleeves, gloves, clothes covering my neck - I don't even need sunblock! LOL. Let's get going! The UV is so low, I don't think I'll even bother covering my face with it. The UV index is only 1 this morning with bright sunshine.

I realize there ARE positives to exercising right now!

And I even have pavement now! No snow, no slush, no ice! My dog will be so happy!

    What a great perspective change, no bad weather, only bad clothes. There's still a little snow around here, more called for in a few days, but still plenty of people out jogging despite the weather. Sounds like a great idea to cultivate.

    It's easy to make excuses, we all do it but don't we all feel so much better when we've got out of our chairs and done something!!
Good on you, hope you really enjoy it...the dog too! emoticon

    I looked at noon and the UV index is 4. It's 15 degrees. Off I go!

    Good for you! You beat your excuses. No matter how legit our excuses are they are still excuses. I need to remember this lol.
