First of all, thanks to those of you who left supportive and encouraging comments on my last post. It helps to know that I'm not alone!
I realized another thing that is harder in the winter: running. I don't have (nor can I afford right now) the proper gear for running outside when it's freezing. And the roads around my place have been so slippery anyway that I'm sure I'd kill myself if I tried.
But I miss it. I love running outside. I can't stand running on the treadmill - it's boring and I can't adjust my speed as easily as I can outside. And I push myself so much more when I run outside, which is much better for my weight-loss plan, no doubt.
But enough complaining...my son's first birthday is next weekend, and I'm scrambling to finish plans for his little party. And I STILL have Christmas stuff to put away. Wish me luck!
