So here in NC its rare we get snow days, but for some reason Mother Nature has decided that this year we needed several. We were all snowed in again the last 2 days. I have to tell you bad weather is really effecting my mood. I mean I work out to relieve stress weather its a run at lunch or a class or 2 at the gym after work. Its my outlet. Well the gyms been closed, roads been bad, and running on this ice, which is a lot of what we had this week is not an option. I cant afford to slip and get injured and not be able to train for a couple weeks, it would just put me WAY far behind. So Wednesday I got home from work about noon bc of the weather I went on an did my weight training circuit. The trainer was so great and gave me a program I could do at the gym OR at home which is awesome for the days when I just cant get there. It wasn't a HUGE calorie burner but it was a work out and I got sweaty. Yesterday I did the circuit again but added about 20 min of core exercises that we normally do in our Thursday evening core class. It helped to mix it up and I felt better about moving both snow days. The other thing I struggle with especially on snow days. Is mindless eating out of boredom. And though I didn't do as good with my food as I do during the week when I am at work. I didn't do horrible. I still got my 120-150 oz of water in and my protein was were it needed to be too.
I will leave you with a picture taken about 20 miles from where I live ( was taken Wednesday when storm started) OK you northerners... prepare to laugh. I just dont ever thing snow in this area will be a good thing.
