Change of Season

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

I have to say fall is my favorite season it's cool but not cold and all of the leaves start to change and it's absolutely beautiful. Here's what I don't like it's darker earlier and those rainy cool days really drag me down. emoticon

Today is one of those rainy cool days and all I can think about is putting on my sweats, curling up on the couch with a blanket and watching tv. Unfortunately for me I do my workouts at night. I still need to get myself motivated and get on the treadmill for my run. So while I do love fall sometimes I feel like it doesn't love me, it sucks my motivation out of me and turns me into a lazy girl. I plan to fight the urge to be a couch potato and get my workout in but let me tell you it won't be easy lol. emoticon

Anybody else out there have the same issue with the weather making them unmotivated?

    Oh I definately hear you! I have issues with getting out of my warm and cozy bed when it is dark and cold and rainy. It's so much easier to jump out of bed with a spring in your step when it is sun shiney and warm! I need to get better at dragging myself up as I need to get more running in. :)

    Yes! I HATE the cold weather and it's harder for me to get motivated. I FORCE myself to get my workouts done in the AM before work that way I can curl up with a blanket when I get home! emoticon

    Rainy days are especially difficult in the fall, for all the reasons you outlined. I didn't get in any exercise yesterday, partly because of the cold rainy day.

    Oh gosh yes! I love the cold weather but unfortunately my body doesn't. It stinks. When I woke up this morning, my room was so freezing, I didn't want to get out of bed.

    I feel the same way about cool rainy days. I just want to stay in bed, drink hot cocoa, and watch movies!

    Oh I hear ya! Fall is my fave season as well...but I have found that I don't feel very productive on cold, overcast, rainy or dreary days! LOL I do much better when the sun is shining brightly!

    My one bright spot is that once it cools off for good (should be soon...should be soon!) I can start walking on my lunch breaks again! Can't wait to start getting in a mid-day workout!
