Snowing = Losing it Drama Llama style!

Monday, March 25, 2013

I walked at lunch without a jacket. It was cool but I NEEDED to feel "springy". Had to go for dog food right after work and the temp was dropping. I get home and get changed, hoping to run. IT IS SNOWING!! My bad hip is killing me and I'm stuck in the house AGAIN. Hubby caught me yelling at the sky and calling Mother Nature all kinds of names on the porch.

I am just SOOO cooped up. I need to get out and move. I can't afford a treadmill. There isn't a gym with in 30 minutes that I can get to after work. I'm so sick of jumping jack, burpees, and running in place. All three hurt my shin splints.

Yes, I'm whining. Sorry. If it would just stop snowing!! I don't need 80's, just 40's maybe a 50 here or there. Just feel like this is taking forever. I'm trying to make jokes but this is starting to really effect me. And not in a good way. I'm a plant person, an outdoor person - one of the main reasons for starting on this journey was so I could do more outside, in nature. I'm dying here!

Ok, I'm gonna put the drama llama in the yard now and leave you with this:

    we have had mostly snow since october and are in the minuses i get my work out by going sleighing wih the kids,haveing snowball fights(you would be surprised how much calories you can burn with the ducking and running to get out of the way of a snowball)making snowmen and igloos.we havenĀ“t done it thios year so far but there is alway about snow walking using tennis rackets as snow really have to lift your feet up bending the knees to walk in up snow from pathways and roads is also good fo a,enjoy have fun and just think of curling up on the sofa afterwards under a warm duvet drinking hot chocolate and reading a good book.even better if you have a blazing fire as well. emoticon

    I know many of us are feeling the same way!! I am sick and tired of the cold weather! Keeping my fingers crossed that we'll get warm weather soon and that it stays!!

    Hey, at least you'll be grateful for the good weather?? It sprinkled here for about 5 minutes last night and you would think the world was coming to an end...luckily today is sunny again, though cool-ish, so people have re-learned how to drive... :-)

    I'm having the same issues except thankfully no snow! I've been having to walk/jog around my house and get in exercise where I can.

    YEah, there's a reason I spent the last 25 years of my life teaching in the Virgin Islands...........I can't handle snow at all!

    I too am so tired of winter. I discussed how it can still snow in the season of spring with my students yesterday! This is so ridiculous! Last year it was in the 70's and even hit an 80 degrees, but obviously not this year!

    I sure hope I don't hear anyone complaining about the heat this summer! emoticon I may have to slap them! emoticon

    I hear ya!! I'm tired of being cooped up, too. I'm tired of the snow. But, I can just hear myself now when it gets to be 103 degrees & wishing it was cooler. We're never satisfied. emoticon

    There is a great stretch for shin splints in the fitness section of SP. Just go to the fitness tab & do a search for it. Coach Nicole's stretch works like a charm.

    Good luck!! Hang in there! emoticon emoticon

    I do hope it warms up soon. I am sick of snow as well.

    So sorry! It will change for the better soon! Then it will be cold and rainy season for a bit, then you will finally get a taste of summer! We still have snow on the ground here, and are expecting flurries later this week, but it was about 45 deg when I went running at lunch yesterday, so I am hopeful about spring. BTW, I love the spring break in Chicago picture!

    have you checked on craigslist? We have found some affordable kids furniture and kids skis on craigslist. I bet you can find a reasonably priced treadmill with low mileage on it. It may take a while to find one. And, after what you went through this winter, I think you will be able to justify saving up for a decent used treadmill before next winter! Good luck!

    OMG....I so feel your frustration.

    Don't laugh...I don't even own and every day coat. I have a farm coat that looks like a tree (hunters have such warm clothes...) but no coat for every day, which really isn't a big deal since I do dress warm in layers and do most of my exercise here in the the winter.

    I want to spend time with the horses and with this weather....errrrrrrrrrrrr

    I, too, have hip issues. My right hip. I've never had it looked at...but certain exercises really bug it...and running is one of them.

    Hang in's got to be over soon.

    Sorry to hear of all your snow and low temperatures. Its very cold here in the UK, not as cold as you in Canada though, but we are all miserable about it. I cannot get out on my bike in this cold as my feet and hands freeze and then hurt.

    We are praying for a let up in the weather and for spring to arrive.

    How do you feel about snow shoeing? Or cross country skiing? Half jest, half serious question.

    I'm sorry it is snowing again. I wish I could help.

    That front yard looks like here in North Dakota. We still have almost full snow cover.

    Spring will be here soon.

    Big emoticon . Feel your pain a bit about the outside thing--but I have a treadmill and that keeps me sane (well, most of the time). Any dvds you could buy or rent or take home from the library for the 'bad' days? Yoga or something like that? emoticon

    I hear ya! Welcome to crazy, I can definitely show you around.

    I keep telling myself to take advantage of being cooped up with SP videos and hand weights, a little more time to get ready to look better in my capri pants this year and dare I dream, maybe buy a pair of shorts.

    We're almost there!

    Sending you some signs of spring (it's gotta get here soon!):
