I don't know about anyone else but I've totally got the Winter blues! I can't wait for Spring and some warmer weather, skies that aren't gray, sunlight earlier and later etc. During the colder months I've been eating more, exercising less, and becoming more and more antsy every day. I just can't wait to go outside, see something green, go for a walk or hike, breath fresh air. I'm going totally stir crazy insane being indoors all the time.
With all of this I'm slowly gaining weight... which is a huge problem for me cause it's something that I do every winter and I'm having trouble breaking past that. I feel like during the real cold months I just lose any and all motivational mojo, I'm all talk no action, I get lazy, I pack on some pounds, I feel depressed, and I whine about it. Then once I get that first 60* spring day I'm right back on like nothing ever happened....this happened last year too. BUT, then I've backtracked and end up having to re-losing my winter month pounds before I can move forward.
Does anyone else have this problem? Does anybody have any strategies to surviving the last few weeks of winter? Any thoughts on how to break this cycle!
OH... and on a positive note it's officially 25 days until daylight savings time and 35 days to the first day of Spring....longer and warmer days are finally in sight!
