Winter Blahs

Yesterday I managed to salvage a whopping 1.8 HBBC points for my pathetic lazy self. It's not much, but better than scoring another big fat goose egg. This was accomplished by 10mins of stretching and strategically parking 0.75 miles from the office so I had 1.5 miles of unavoidable walking round trip.

Sadly, I opted once again to skip the gym this morning which really isn't like me. I generally look forward to starting my day with a workout. I think maybe I have a case of the dreaded Winter Blahs. I'm guessing it has something to do with grey cloudy skies and icy sidewalks. I'm ready for the sun to come back any day now.

On a brighter note, behold the most excellent Gym Queen handy-dandy notebook for recording my workouts in 2009.

Isn't it perfect?!?

I'm so ready for 2009. Bring it on!

  4. I think you should get about 50 points for parking .75 miles from the office. I have no problem going to the gym but I've come to be so lazy about working exercise into my day-- it really is so important!

  5. I am in a similar place with some blahs as well and I have faith that it will pass.

    Yours will too. Try not to worry about it too much. :-)

    The notebook ROCKS!

  7. I agree that you should get extra points for the walk. I'd much rather be inside the gym. Hope the fun of the holidays helps chase the blahs away!

  9. You have been working hard out for ages Lisa - give yourself a break. A few blah days may actually mean you needed the break!

    I love pretty new workout stuff too.... notebooks, socks, bags, hats, gloves, weights, shirts. Makes the workout a bit more fun huh!
