I've Got Some Funk in My Trunk

Why does the new year start during the winter? You're supposed to work out, eat right and be energized. In the winter. When it's cold. No wonder nobody follows through on their resolutions. What sadist created the calendar?

All I want to do is lay on the couch, pig out and take a nap. It's freakin' cold! Well, by Virginia standards it's cold. Temps in the 30's was shorts weather when I lived in Vermont. If it's going to be this cold I want some snow. I want to be able to strap on some snowshoes and explore a mountain. Without the snow, I have no interest in stepping outside my front door.

Luckily, I haven't broken any resolutions....yet. I know better than to put diet and exercise goals on my list. But, I need to get out of this funk.

Soon.

Mother Nature, I need your help. Throw me a bone, please.

If not ...

Take your trunk to the library and exercise your mind. While you're there, check out a workout DVD! OR, visit the local YMCA. Most Ys will let you in for the day for around $10 - You'll have less Funk AND less trunk!

We are freezing to death here in AR, too. 28 is the high today! What the Heliken!

I know exactly what you mean. I hate this cold weather. I've heard that it's better to do resolutions in the Spring. But, I always forget by then. :)

Working out is easy. It's the eating I struggle with. I look at my trips to the gym as a way to spend a peaceful hour sans kiddies. Best motivation ever.

I have been craving spring something terrible lately. I don't really care for winter that much. It has been in the 30's here in GA and that's felt pretty chilly.

I don't like working out in the winter either! I just want to curl up on the couch with a book or take a nap. I have been making myself workout though so I will be in decent shape by the time the weather actually does decide to warmout.

Good luck with the junk in yo trunk! :)

Fawn - Good idea, but I'm sure it's too cold for me to even get to the library or the Y. Pathetic.

GSG - I like that. Resolutions SHOULD start in the Spring.

Lila - I have been ok about the exercising, but I used to be REALLY good about getting it in there. I need a new workout buddy. Mine have all quit.

Abby - Yep, I'll curl up to read a book and then fall asleep after 5 minutes so I feel really crappy about myself. :( Glad I'm not alone. Thanks for stopping by. Come back often. :)
