Cold Weather

Tuesday, December 19, 2017

It is forecasted to be 61 degrees on Wednesday and 21 degrees on Thursday and a possibility of up to 3" of snow. Now I am a real anti-cold weather fan and also really do not like snow. I have been on a roll with going to the gym and getting outside and walking. But I am already preparing myself for failure later in the week as I don't venture out when it is cold and especially snow or ice. I have a bad history of breaking bones - I have broken both ankles, my foot twice, my hand and my thumb all in separate "accidents". People ask "how did you do that" and all I can say is that it happens so fast and next thing I know I am on the ground. I do know my sense of balance is poor and getting poorer the older I get but I am only 58 so frustrating that I am already having balance issues. I do think the yoga and other workouts at the gym are helping me feel a little more secure and a lot healthier. Just not confident that this return to winter will be a good thing for me as it will probably keep me out of the gym.

    Sounds like you live where I do, wonderful, colorful Colorado. I have been loving the warm we have been having, because my arthritis hates the cold and damp. My balance is getting bad, so I have had to learn to move slowly and not to go anywhere without my cane, even in the house. I will likely be staying indoors when the under 30 degrees hits. At home exercise, called housework cleaning, gets me sweating enough indoors.

    Try a yoga dvd at home the days you don't want to venture. Balance skills are so important. I'm working in balance and posture with most my workouts. Yoga is good to focus in those skills.
