winter sucks!!!

Postby Nay » Sun Jul 08, 2007 10:56 pm

Ok, I'm surely not the only one that is finding the cold winter months very un-motivating for losing weight.

I'm craving lots of warm yummy (but bad) foods!! And I don't feel like getting out of bed at 5am every morning to exercise!

Bring on spring!!!!

The only thing that motivates me is peeling off the layers of clothing in the summer to reveal a new slimmer me!!

hey nay yep this weather is depressing me. we only have about 6 weeks til spring! it is hard to be motivated but as you said, you have a hot body under all those layers that you can show off in summer. i think it would be worse to lose most the weight in summer only to have to cover yourself up for winter :?

'tis very hard indeed to get on my bike in the morning when there is frost out and barely 2 degrees. I delayed my departure by an hour today.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).

oh Tegan I can understand you delaying your departure...you would be like a frozen ice stick by the time you got to your destination!!! Does any amount of rugging up stop that kind of cold getting in??

I don't find the getting up in the cold a problem. Early for me is a 9:30am gym class anyway LOL

What I am finding is that since I've lost a lot of extra padding this year, I am absolutely FREEEEEEEZING!!! Add to that moving a bit further down the coast recently, & it's the coldest I've been in a long time!

I'm actually looking forward to warmer weather for a change. I usually hate it as I refused to bare my arms or wear shorts, & I was literally cooking in Summer wearing such hot clothing.

rugging up does help. Under 5 degrees I wear a neckwarmer and an extra coat (though this often gets removed half way). Under 10 degrees and I have my full gloves on. During winter I have thicker socks too. BUT you still get chilly around the face and my right little finger in particular feels it - I swear I could feel the cells in it freezing and splitting on the way to frostbite the other day and thought I would have to stop at the hospital on the way to uni and have it amputated. (I'm such a drama queen) It finally got some warm blood into it about a block from the hospital so nothing drastic eventuated, but it was painful. I might invest in windstopper gloves for the really cold mornings as frost seems to be a regular thing at our new place.

Generally heavy frost is only a concern due to safety issues - bikes don't stop real good on ice, and that's scary as there are 2 big hills on the way to Uni, both which have intersections at the bottom.
