I tend to get a bit depressed when the weather begins to get chilly.
I am not fond of chilly conditions and snow.
In my local neighborhood, the Winter weather often lasts for more than 6 months of the year. We anticipate temperatures below thirty for most of the time and aren’t shocked by negative reading. The snow gets measured in feet and the windchill makes spending time outside often dangerous. I am not thrilled with wrapping up in layers of sweaters, wool coats, knitted hat, gloves and thermal boots. I hate shoveling snow and scraping ice off the windshield. I get super aggravated when I can’t workout outside. I just love to go for a jog or a bike ride for exercise. There is a back deck built across my house. It provides the perfect location to unroll my yoga mat, stretch, weight train and jump rope. I’ve seen that I benefit from a more strenuous workout when I’m outdoors. Breathing fresh air and feeling sunlight on my skin motivates me to push myself. I enjoy a better mood, take advantage of more space and just feel more enthusiastic. I have purchased clothing designed specifically to manage all the different types of local weather. I have workout pants and tops designed to keep me warm, keep me dry in the rain and also wick away sweat when the weather is hot and sticky. It’s still not all that fun working out when I’m shivering, getting soaked with rain or sweating profusely before I even start my warm up. For most of the year, I have no choice but to workout indoors. I’ve arranged a small home gym, but it’s limited. I get sick of running on the treadmill. I get bored with staring at the wall while I lift weights.
