Snow Boycott

Posted Jan 31 2011 1:03pm

January and February are just about the worst months of the year for me. The older I get, the worse it is. Just so sick of the cold and snow and grey, dreary days. I thought I could totally avoid hitting the tanning bed. I tried taking Vitamin D orally and have been for almost a year now and the shit doesn't work. Not for ellevating mood during winter months, not at all.

So Saturday I caved when I saw that a new tanning place had opened up in town. Light, warmth...it was 4 minutes of pure bliss. I know it's not good for me, I know, I know, I know, but I also know that wanting to kill myself isn't good for me either. Pick your poison.

Then I took it a step further and went outside for a 4 mile run. I just couldn't take it any longer. I needed to clear my head and it worked. It was also a balmy 32 degrees and felt spring like. I put on my cold weather nike running pants, a tank top, a sweat jacket, a scarf, a  nike running hat, my nike running gloves, my ear warmers and a scarf and it was perfect.

It's amazing what exercise and light can do for your mood. I was on cloud 9 the rest of the day, literally could not stop smiling. I honestly don't know how people get through life without exercise...how do they clear their head, how do they blow off steam, how, how, how?!

 

 

Now it's Monday and while I had a great workout with Bob this am, we are suppose to be getting some crazy ass snowstorm in the next couple of days with like up to 2ft of snow...

I'll be hitting the tanning bed today.
