That makes sense. I used to think my carb cravings were from the cold weather. Didn't realize it was SAD.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

I agree, I used to walk right after my son left to meet the bus in the morning. Now it's so dark out that I don't like to walk at that hour.



Everything happens for a reason!

Is anyone else out there in the northern climes struggling with the fall season like I am...? As you'll see in my current status:

Too DARK, Too COLD, Too SOON!!!

Have to wonder about Seasonal Affective Disorder...! Since getting my SPARK on I've found myself craving the outdoors and sunshine. It's feeling like I'm going through withdrawal lately...ugh!

Here's an interesting slide show on SAD. I wasn't aware that increased appetite and cravings for carbs could be symptoms of SAD!

It's already dark in the morning when I do my treadmill routine! At least my internal "clock" is catching up with the dark. I don't wake up with an alarm clock...just do it on my internal clock. Had a few oversleeps, but not many and now? 6 a.m. and I'm UP!

How're folks dealing with the seasonal changes? Care to share any of your experiences? Strategies?
