As I look out the window on what should be a glorious, sunny spring day, I see gray clouds, a rain splashed window, and I unconsciously wrap my my thick and comfy gray cardigan tighter around my person. The very same cardigan I bought on sale for 80% off at Banana Republic thanks to my JDRF's Friends & Family 30% off coupon. Can you say: SCORE!!
Yes it's April, and of course I get the whole "April showers bring May flowers" thing, but I have to admit, I want me some Spring sunshine, NOW.
In my head I keep thinking of taking long walks along Kelly Drive (surprisingly, it's not named after me) and the beach & boardwalk. I think about riding my bike, maybe trying an outdoor yoga class or two , and I'm seriously considering purchasing some old school roller skates so I can get my ass in gear, both literally & figuratively!
I remember way back when, I would literally dance in the rain with my friends, I'd ride my bike in puddles - splashing and laughing along the way! But that was during the summer months and I was in my teens - I don't care what people thought because we were having fun!
And I still don't care if I look silly in the rain, but I hate exercising in the cold and rainy weather - I guess I'm not as tough as I used to be when it comes to the elements of nature!
But I need to get my exercise Mojo back where it needs to be this Spring - and nothing will stop me, not even a little rain!
So on this rainy April Day, when all thoughts go to sunshine & exercise, what plans to you have to get your Diabetes Exercise groove on this Spring?
