OH yeah..that's quite a big change and will take you some time to get used to it...Houston you could always go out if you wanted and you cant do that now...it'll take time...but bundling up will do wonders and you can always laugh at how you look in the mirror with a million layers on hahah ; ) espicially when the cold winds pick up...today its 37..and supah windy...

I bought a ton of real cute irish looking newsboys caps/hats from Kohl's and Walmart that make me feel good and look real awesome on me to keep my head warm...find something that you like on yourself like a pretty scarf and matching gloves or something like that instead of "having" to wear gloves and scarves and hat.

The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself. All the rest is a piece of cake ; )

Thanks girls! Those are all really good points. Even though today it is freezing outside, it is very sunny which has made me feel better mentally. I have to look at it from another point of view. When I lived in Houston, it would be so hot in the summer that everyone would stay inside and avoid being outdoors, so it was the same thing just a different season. I definitely need to get more winter gear! :)

I hope you were able to get on the treadmill and get your butt in motion girlie!! : )

I dont know what to tell you...I've lived in "this" type of weather since I was born a native Rhode Islander....I can tell you that our seasons last about 2-4 months of winter and sometimes even more. We just got down to the 20's and 30's these past 2 weeks...god knows it'll be cold until April.

I've just adapted to not being able to run outside and dealing with the bundling up..I dont have much advice for you unfortunately.

but I would try to associate these winter months with a positive twist...Get as much sun as you can to ward off the blues and get outside even if its for a bit.....Know that winters allow you to read more books..which I think was one of your goals ; ) and winters allow you more hot cocoa and hopefully more snuggle time... How do you think Joe was created HAHAHHAH. Just kidding....or really not. hahahha. Winters really make you appreciate the warmer days come Spring and Summer and there is nothing as beautiful as watching snow fall...even if you hate driving in it...take Lillian out to play as much as you can... we cant change the seasons, so all we can do is adapt *hugs*

it's unavoidable, you will get the winter blues.... I have a "happy light" that my sleep dr. recommended to me to have one in the am while eating breakfast ect. it's suppose to wake me up more and make it so that i avoid my mid morning crash. I think he's crazy and it doesn't really work but....... a lot of people use the same lights to fight off the winter blues which it might be helping with since i haven't gotten them yet.

I think the real trick is buying better winter gear.

"don't change your plans, change your outfit"

I just figured that out this year. but already i have spent more time outside this winter then i have since i was a kid. It's important to go out side even if you don't feel like taking on the elements sitting in a deck chair all bundled up for 15 min letting the sun soak into your barely exposed face does make a difference. :)

I pull Marley around in a sled a lot in our back yard. great outside workout.

i often think about how my life would be different if i lived in a better climate

Okay, Jamie and Natalie, and whoever lives in really cold and snowy areas...please help me out. I haven't had to deal with snow, ice, and extreme cold for 9 years now and it is part of the reason why I moved to the south. How do you deal with this without falling into a deep depression? This sucks! Even a walk to the mail box seems treacherous and like a big deal. I think I'll just hang in there, but ever since the holidays ended the snow is not as appealing as it used to be. Sigh...tomorrow is a new day. I'm charging my Body Bugg and I WILL get on the treadmill and do a Spark Video. I WILL!!!
