How do I cope with the August heat???

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

So this week's blog challenge for the Sensational SIsters team is about the high temperatures of August & how I cope with them.

Well this has been an usual August of sorts. In fact it has rained EVERY SINGLE DAY for the past 3 or 4 weeks. So much rain in fact that several communities have flooding issues & some of the roadways there have had to be closed due to standing water. My activities pretty much are limited to inside ---walking in the mall or using my wii. doing some SP Strength Training Exercises. Although I do not miss the 100+ temps, I do miss being able to spend my afternoons &/or weekends out in the sunshine.

Although the temps aren't extreme this summer here, I do always keep ice cold water on hand, aiming for a daily goal of 10 cups daily.

Whatever the weather is, making "ME" a priority is important in reaching my SP Healthy goals. emoticon

    This summer has been strange here also. Only fifteen days of temperatures in the 90's with those high heat indexes. It has been cool the past few days. But the heat is coming back Monday and Rain tomorrow and over the weekend.

    Hope you have a great day and you get some sunshine soon. emoticon

    And of course, high temps where I live is probably just right where you live.....

    Anything above 22 or 23 degrees (celsius) is too warm for me....

    We've been blessed with cooler temperatures here in Southeast, MO! However, when the temps and humidity gets too high.. I won't lie... I stay inside...

    We have had 5 days of rain without many hours of "letting up". I really miss being able to get out. Been doing inside walking and strength training like you. Found some here on SP and one I liked on "You Tube". Hoping for emoticon tomorrow!
