I smile when I read about heaters....we own one, but know idea where it is. I LOOOOOVE winter, far prefer it to summer. In summer I feel like an over fried piece of pork fat. At least with the cold, I can dress up. Today is 16C and Im in heaven...no jersey, just a thin top.

I will NOT run emotionally from compliments and hide in fat layers for protection.

weather people keep saying this is one of the coldest winters in a while - lots of wind, rain and even snow in some places. how are you all coping with the cold?

personally, i'm loving my space heater. also exercise to keep my blood flowing. but i haven't been having as much green tea as i normally would, maybe it's time to start. also thinking of bringing out the hot chocolate for dessert tonight...

I live in Joburg but I was in Durban for the last couple of days. I was looking forward to a break from the chilly weather but Durbs was not much better. All windy and cloudy, I thought I was in Cape Town! I'm now having problems waking up to walk, I'm thinking of investing in a couple of exercise DVDs. Yep, winter is here!

Who am I not to be talented, brilliant and gorgeous?

So as Meralo says you've been having Cape Town weather :D
We got some sunshine back yesterday and today but it's only reached 18C

I went to bed early Monday and Tuesday nights - cheaper to use my electric blanky than to try to warm the room or any part of the house!! Watched all my favourite programs, snacked on healthy almonds and dried mangos and slept like a log for a change

Making butternut soup with cumin and paprika, and half a cup of OJ. Went for a 6.8km walk this morning 16min/miles rather than Aqua and then an hour of BodyWorx - one way to warm the toes.

When it's a combination of cold and wet, I head to the treadmill to do my Walk-a-Thon mileage - but I hate it! I couldn't live in the UK any more - cold urticaria kicks in at 22C :( - mind you, if I had central heating and could afford to run it, and never had to go out I suppose I could just about cope - but then I'd get cabin fever :D

hey all!

well, living in joburg was certainly interesting yesterday - we had some crazy (and unseasonal) rain! it has been very very cold, and i am doing everything i can to keep warm.

i don't know about everyone else, but i am really appreciating my exercise as a way to get warm. also, eating lots of (healthy) soup, and making things like chili and burritos and curry and other such hot, spicy and warming foods.

anyone else having similar experiences? how are you continuing to pursue your goals during these cold months?
