Spring Ahead

As I am home another day staring out my window at the white, snow covered  trees, I no longer see beauty.  Actually, I am tired of it.  Winter can show us beauty in pictures and maybe during one snowfall where you enjoy the benefits of your warm home, a cup of hot cocoa, and a day to catch up on other things in life besides work.  Well, this winter did not give this to me.  I already spent 5 days without power, heat and cable and I am still trying to recoup what I lost in my refrigerator.  Just too many basics to restock up on at once. My schedule is upside down and after staying home today I hope to get completely back on track.

So it is March 13 and Mother Nature promises us Spring in 7 days.  Well I am holding you to this Mother Nature!!!! I think I speak for myself, as well as everyone around me, as a person who is done with winter and who just wants to get back to life.  After missing one week of Pilates, Zumba and Barre classes I am starting to feel as if weeks of work have gone to winter flab.  I browse through my closet, on yet another day home, to think ahead to the fun outfits I will hopefully be wearing soon as I dream of warm weather, sitting on my deck with a glass of wine, and seeing my friends who have all had the same problems.  We all now officially have cabin fever and want to be together again.  Sharing a meal, having a toast to togetherness and just celebrating life! So we are now surrendering Mother Nature and begging you to bring Spring on!!

This is a week of celebrations for me – first, my birthday and then St. Patrick’s Day.  So a little bit of cheating will occur.  I will attempt to limit it to a little bit.  But I have set a new date of Sunday, March 18 (two days before the first day of Spring) to recommit to my eating plan, exercise challenge and to continue becoming a healthier me.  Hope all of you will join me as we get closer to those summer months that we all love and cherish.
