I swear I find my weight loss / healthy living efforts easier in good weather.
In the winter I struggle - really really struggle. I leave the house in the dark, and return in the dark. I have no motivation to do stuff in the few hours at home. I just want to eat something warm and "comforting", and sit down and relax.
A bit of nice weather and I want to be "doing stuff". (except in those few weeks a year when it's too hot to want to do anything). My motivation and discipline has slowly been returning over the last week or 2.
I wonder if I have SAD, but I never noticed it before I had a weight problem and spent most of my daylight hours at work. Perhaps I just need better time management and routine for my home (and me). Or a job with a shorter commute. Anyway, looking forward to some pleasant summer evenings for walking or chillaxing and "crack-o'dawn" mornings for a bit of Turbo Jam. It's SO much easier to wake up at 4.30 am when the sun's shining and the birds are singing.
