I will say that one thing walking in the cold does is that it slaps the sleepiness right out of you. This morning was cold and drizzly and while I did sleep through my alarm, I did get up in time to do a brief 20 minute Yoga routine.
I didn’t have a video loaded so I set a timer and made it up as I went. I’m sure no professional would be impressed, but I kept moving for the entire twenty minutes and at the end I was sweaty with my limbs all warmed up. Admittedly anytime I had to stop and think of a new move to add to the routine I did arm circles. My arms are not happy with me, but I did technically keep moving the entire time.
This afternoon I just needed a break from the computer and while it was over cast there was no actual rain / sleet coming down so I thought I’d risk it. The walk was cold, but relatively dry. I doubt it is going to stay that way for long. The entire time i was walking it felt like the sky was sinking lower and lower.
Snow is predicted tonight and I am pretty sure we are going to get it.
But I did learn my lesson, so tonight I am going to set up my workout playlist so that tomorrow morning I don’t have to think, I just have to hit play. I’ll also set out my work out clothes to put on right away. I did remember to do that last night and I think that was my one saving grace this morning. I put on the clothes I laid out without thinking about it and then realized I was dressed for a workout so I might as well do one. So I did. I think if I started in any other clothes i would have just skipped the yoga.
So it was a fashion victory as well as a fitness one. do you think I can get points for that and if so, can i stock pile them to help pay off the fashion police when my workout clothes look less than stellar? I noticed that while I replace my shirts routinely several of my leggings and yoga pants are looking a little worse for the wear. I don’t replace them as often as I do the shirts. Perhaps I should pop onto crate joy and see if I can find a subscription for workout clothes when I look at renewing my Jersey Shore Cosmetics Lip balm subscription. You know, before the fashion police issue me a citation.
Oh well, at least I remembered to wear my hat on my walk today so my ears don’t feel like they are about to fall off the side of my head. That’s something right?
