Do you know New England area? Are you familiar with the winters here? Well, I thought that I knew all about the winters here. So wrong!!!!! Today we got hit with yet another snow storm. BUT, let me tell you, I will take snow anytime over what's coming tomorrow - ice.
I am an emotional eater. I get stressed out easily. Well, this winter has been so far a big stressor. The sad thing is that I feel less and less motivated to exercise as we are once again inside our house. Somehow I know that I am not alone. Yesterday, in the preparation for the upcoming storm, we New Englanders went to supermarkets ONCE AGAIN!!! The excitement is gone from people's faces. People are tired of this snow and the constant preparation, the worry about the roof either leaking or collapsing, the slippery ride to work or the kids at home again. As I was cruising through the supermarket yesterday, the faces were sad, depressed, and just plain tired.
How do you feel? Do you feel like exercising during this weather? Are you motivated or do you feel like joining the bears and hibernating with them? I have all I need to get a good exercise at home, but at this point I so much crave a human contact and community.... This computer is my lifeline, it is my connection to the world, it is my connection to you. Although the computer takes up a lot of my time, I am grateful for the opportunity it provides for me.
Well, only 47 days till spring. You might see me then walking and hiking once again. For now I just have to stick with my DVDs and commit to exercise. I never thought that I will say this, but I do enjoy shoveling some of the snow (but only a few inches not two feet of it). There is something about being outside on a fresh air and catching some of the daylight.
Here is to spring!!!!
