Let The Sun Shine!

Already day dreaming about my next day at the beach!
 Hallelujah, my lovelies! It is a sunny day...I watched the forecast this morning and by mid-week we should be looking at a sweet 80 degrees! I don't think that I have Seasonal Affective Disorder, but I do think my mood is very affected by the weather. I guess I am just lucky I live in CA and its usually not so bad. But last week it just rained non-stop, and it was really starting to get to me!

I took the week off from running last week due to the weather. I could have hit my treadmill, but just wasn't in the mood. I was still adjusting from that darn time change - I know, it's ridiculous...I should totally be over that by now! But even though I was tired in the morning and not inspired to head out into the rainy darkness and run, I made sure I did DVD workouts 5 out of the last 7 days. I really hope to get back on track with running this week. My running buddy had a change in schedule so we just need to get adjusted. This WILL happen, dammit!

So I have started off my week feeling happy, and well, just good all the way around. I did tons of laundry yesterday and a good chunk of house-cleaning. I have already planned a play date for Monkey for this week, and also have a girl's night planned for Friday. If I can just get a few runs in, life will be simply smashing. 

Wishing you all a fabulous week!

  4. it was definitely a inside workout week for me too with all that rain! TurboFire and P90X kept me happy though, but my dogs would have much preferred a run :) I just jump into the time change like nothing is different and usually adjust quite well... just like traveling!!!

  5. Send some of the warmth this way! I am going stir crazy not being able to walk anywhere, especially since it *looks* nice outside.

  6. Enjoy the CA sunshine- I used to live in Northern CA, and those rainy months made you want to hit the tanning beds just to feel warmth. Good for you for sticking to exercise despite the dreary weather. Enjoy the sunshine- hopefully you can get out with the boys without getting too muddy....

  7. I've slacked for almost a week from gym too and only went back yesterday. The weather's been freaky, just glad it finally rained hard last night.

  8. I live in AZ, and love the sunshine and heat! I definitely notice a change in my mood when it's not sunny. I'm keeping you as inspiration to get back to the running as well! Following from the haute mom blog hop:)

  11. Amen! I so need sunshine!! We had a few 80 degree days, then it dropped into the 40's...depressing. Supposed to be on a warm up again, we'll see. NC weather has been crazy.

  13. Ooh, I'm so jealous of that picture! Is that a view from your home in CA?? It has rained here, in TN, all week as well. But the weekend is promising to be all SPRING!!! Yea! Good luck with your running. Wish I was motivated enough to do that. But, ummm, yea, I'm not.
    Blessings
