Spring... 77 days away on the calendar

Thursday, January 02, 2014

Not in the mood to be serious or discuss nutrition, goals or anything except...

Well, does't EVERYone like to talk about the weather when it's weathering outdoors?!?

There is a reason that I decided to be born on GroundHog Day, and that reason is right outside my window right now! Brr it is so... JANUARY outside! Subzero temps (including the double-digit windchill) and this ridiculous "Hercules" snow storm have me thinking about... spring, summer, flowers, robins and hummingbirds, walking barefoot on a soft lawn, strolling outdoors in a light gauze dress..... Or maybe a fast flight to Maui? Oh. That's right. There aren't any planes going out... Good thing I'm a creative daydreamer!

I marked my calendar starting at the day before March 20th (day one of Spring) and number backwards so that every day until March 20th I know how close "Spring" is coming. Why? Well, because I'm eager to slip into a nicer season. Of course, the joke is that spring up here arrives at least 4-6 weeks AFTER the official first day! So on the first day of Spring I'll be counting days until June 15th... which seems to be about when I feel confident winter is gone each year.

Tomorrow's cardio will be clearing off the car... It's a light snow, so it should be easy except for that windchill factor.

Hope all my friends are staying warm in their cold places and cool where it's summer!

    Same snow shoveling and wind chills here and the worst is yet to come. I live in the wrong part of the country for not liking the cold weather. I also am dreaming of spring and summer when I can get my flip flops back out and be in the pool. emoticon

    We are definitely at opposite ends of the globe.
    I am sweltering here and thinking of when the
    autumn comes. Exactly opposite wishing...
    It is going to be 40 Celsius tomorrow and I am
    making sure to drink lots of water. Might go to
    the beach, but not during the middle of the day.
    I hope the weather warms up for you soon.
    Have a Happy NEw Year. emoticon

    Duly shoveled, cleaned, bundled up and safely to work! Had an hour of snow-shoveling cardio on top of my ST & spin bike yesterday...whew!

    Thx so much for your ongoing support...! Thinking spring already...it will be here before we know it and I want to be oh-so-ready!
