I’m blogging on the fly today, so forgive any typos. It’s been a busy autumn so far, and the temperature around here has started to drop. I’ve had enough chilly days to make me invest some money in new biking gear – cold weather tights, gloves, and neoprene booties to slip over my Vibram shoes. I hate being cold, so I’m doing my best to stay warm, but I’m also fighting the urge to stay indoors, and that’s very hard.
I like to hibernate when the weather turns chilly. I like to curl up on the couch with a hot cup of tea and look out the window knowing I don’t have to be out there unless I want to be. However, this isn’t the healthiest attitude to have, so I’m going to force myself this fall and winter to get out at least once each week, twice or more preferably. Once my biking gear comes in, I should be okay to ride. I’ll still have to ride against the wind every time I go out, but at least I should be warm. And maybe if I can find the time, I’ll get outside a couple afternoons each week and work on the yard. I don’t have to spend hours outside, just 30 minutes or so will do the trick.
But it’s going to be hard. Believe it or not, I’ve got a lazy streak a mile wide and it’s most likely to rear its ugly head when the days turn cold and dreary. We’ll see how well I fight against it this year.
Anyone else have plans to get outside this fall and winter? Let me know how you do it!
