It feels good to be right

Yesterday I challenged myself to get my rear out of bed and get to the pool or gym every morning for the rest of the week. Not because my training has been lacking, or because I'm behind schedule. Rather it's because my mood has been suffering due to the prolonged cold weather and windy days we've been having.

So this morning we got up and hit the pool. 1400 yards later I was tired and HAPPY. I took that energy to work and had a good start to my day. I followed it up with a couple diet dews and I'm still in tip top mental form (as tip top as I get anyways). 

So it feels good to know I was right about making this change, but mostly I just feel good because I did it!

A big storm has been predicted for today here in Boston, as many as 8 inches of snow has been forecast.My morning mood boost couldnt have come at a better time.

So now that I've discovered this key to my better winter mood, I challenge you: What can you do to make yourself feel better and fight off the winter blues? I'd love to hear!


  1. Hockey 2 days a week at 5:45 am does wonders for a happy, productive day. At least 2 other days, I still get up at 5 for a workout. It's not always easy, but it does make breakfast taste really really good!

  2. No doubt, K! I have mornings when I just can't pull myself out of bed, but those days I either have to put down a big workout in the evening, or I know I have to eat smart all day. The discipline to get up is a lot easier than eatting perfectly every day that's for sure!
