I know that lack of sun effects everyone differently. Some love it others complain about it but I think (though I am not a doctor) I need it badly. How I act & motivation about life are so dramatic when it comes to the weather. I am extreme about it. In the summer I just want to go & go. I have no issues eating healthy & I am just a happier person. My cousin is the opposite. She is better in the winter & gets depressed in the summer. I am taking Vit. D & 5HTP. Nothing seems to help right now.
I am not a big believer in Astrology though about 6 years ago I was researching it. I do find it interesting. I am a Pisces. All about the water! Seeing water makes me calm & relaxed. When I went to Turkiye last summer I was in total peace out in the ocean just floating. My friend thought it was funny. She didn't believe how happy it made me until she saw for herself.
"Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Pisceans. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun is in Pisces roughly from February 20 to March 20, ending on the moment of vernal equinox by definition."
Need I say more. The words Sun & Tropical jump out to me! Either way since I am going on and on. I really feel the weather effects my mood, eating & exercising on the extreme level.
My husband is back which means less time at the computer & may have to do Zumba in front of him. Something I have never done. Maybe I will kick him downstairs to his "mans cave" so I can workout upstairs.
I printed out 3 calendars for February that I trying to map out my workouts for. I signed up for 2 challenges. Marcelle's & Sly's and I am still working on how I will fit it all in a day but I will. I see no day of rest for the entire month. I see 85 min. a day of exercise, 300 sit ups a week. If anything I will stay busy & have no time to snack!!!
I keep track of my exercise on Daily Mile. Truly feel like I am alone on there this week. Where is everyone?
On a last note I am starving when I get home. I eat breakfast at 7 & my lunch is 11:30. I do not get off until 3:15. Nights that I have errands to run I get home even later. It results in lots of mindless snacking. I do yogurt or oatmeal for breakfast, fruit or salad & almonds for lunch. What would be a good snack to eat to get me through until dinner?
Need to get that scale moving some more. I want the 15 pounds off & now.
Week ends with a total of 8 workouts, walking 25km, exercising 8 hrs. & 58 min., burning 4065 calories!
