Of all people who have the right to complain about snow, I don't. I just got back from my trip to New Orleans for a half marathon. It was sunny, humid, warm, heavenly, etc. Two days later, here we are getting a foot of snow. Did I mention I have no right to complain? Here's why:
I have a roof over my head, a gym membership, a bike on a trainer staring at me in my living room, bottomless cups of coffee, and kitty foot slippers. For those of you who share the same blessings as I do, good luck finding an excuse not to workout on the snowiest day of the season. Here's what you do:
1. Find a yoga youtube video and work on your flexibility. On a typical day, you are sitting for 8-10 hours doing "work" or driving. Today is not a typical day. Stretch!
2. Hop on your bike trainer or treadmill. In your case, that might mean putting your boots on (people in Kansas have those, right?) and getting to your clubhouse to run or walk on the treadmill or lunge your face off around the house.
3. Share with a friend (or me if you don't have any) what your fitness goals are this year and make sure they know you're counting on them to remind you of what you are trying to accomplish.
4. Go shovel for someone who can't. Lift with your legs….
Whatever it is you find yourself doing today, stop making excuses and move a little!! (My bike trainer is taunting me but don't worry, I snuck into the gym early to get a quick swim in.)
Have a safe snowstorm!
