Another month begins and . . . .

I hate this time of year with the long hours of dark and short hours of daylight. I always end up feeling sort of blue. I've tried lights and try to get outside when there is natural light and my vitamin D levels are fabulous according to my doctor - but my energy levels go right down the toilet for the most part from the end of November until pretty much the beginning of March. I'm working out (Coach Nicole's workout) with resistance bands and I enjoy the workouts, but I really want to get outside!
This morning it was snowing like crazy and the high today only went up to about 23 degrees!!! Yes - I shoveled snow - twice - before I left for work and and definitely got a little cardio in there. I guess I'll take that as an UP side to the weather. Things aren't supposed to get vastly better any time soon - and yesterday it was 61 degrees in Denver and I didn't even need a sweater or a coat! Colorado weather is an interesting thing! I'm looking forward to making a big pot of vegetable soup this weekend and baking some Irish soda bread. Great ways to warm up the kitchen and make the house smell fabulous - and pretty good food too!
