Motivation Monday - "Hibernation Mode"
This morning was a new record low for us here, -35. I was thinking, it is almost impossible to think that anyone could actually succeed at weight loss in these conditions. When you are outside working in this type of weather, your body naturally wants to conserve and hold on to your fat (insulation). Think about it..... Now I know I haven't been doing the best to stick to my program - but, would it even matter? Yes, better food choices, tracking and counting points does matter. I wouldn't want to think of how much I might have gained over this long winter otherwise.
When Al told me how cold it was this morning when we woke up - I said to him...."this is un-natural!"
So, motivation for this Monday - realizing that I might make good choices, but the weather is working against me!
