Vote: What's Your Winter Attitude?

By February 4, 2013

Follow me on:

The general mood around my town always takes a nosedive this time of year - at least I assume it's a bad mood that caused a sweet little old lady to cut me off as I was attempting to park at the gym this morning. I know she's sweet, because she always waves at me on Monday mornings. This morning, I'm pretty sure she gave me the one-fingered kind.

Bad moods and negative thinking can seep into every aspect of one's life like moldy groundwater - Relationships, work, social endeavors, finding a parking space at the gym and, of course, exercise. Here's an example: One client cancelled her session last week because, "I hate everything."


And thus we move on to the important part of this blog which involves your mood. How's your winter attitude holding up and is it affecting your workouts? What tricks do you have for avoiding the doldrums? Vote in this week's poll and tell us how things are going with you.

Winter sucks, no doubt about it but there are some good things about it! You can’t build a snowman in summer or have an excuse to stop at Starbucks everyday : ) Also, winter is a good time to lay around in your sweats and read a good book by the fire. I feel much too guilty in the spring/summer to do that. Attitude is everything. Spring is coming soon!!!!!

This year instead of a resolution I made a committment list – not only is it used for exercise/health it can be used to be accountable to any changes you want to make in your life…so far, I’m right on track!

I don’t like the cold & snow , but don’t let it keep me from the path I’m on to maintain my health. I have too many family health issues to NOT stay active. I am now 3 pounds lighter than I was in high school, myy blood pressure is 106/66 ( great considering it used to be 135/85 when married to the ex) my BMI is 19 , not an easy thing to maintain @ 57 years old. I have to own it , Nobody else can do it for me. i do thank God for allowing me to do this. I lift weights, run on the treadmill & outside & do a few dvd workouts. It’s all good to me.
