2021 - 100 Days | Phase 1 - Day 23 - Bitter Cold so Stayed Indoors
Saturday, January 23, 2021
Daily picture of my backyard on the mountain to track the changing seasons this year.
Today was bitter cold and the winds were extremely gusty. All day, I heard the wind blowing through the trees outside and whenever I looked, many of the trees were swaying and bending far over. The poor trees didn't look like they wanted to be outside either.
Even in my house, there seemed to be an extra chill. I could not muster any motivation to go out today, except to run to the mailbox. The wind literally felt like icy needles on my face and, although I wore winter gloves, just the walk down and back up the driveway left my fingers and legs feeling like ice sticks. Nope, couldn't do it. Except for the photo above, it was even too cold to take off my gloves to take some pictures.
I did some walking around my house but seriously, what I mostly did was to curl up in some fleece blankets on the sofa and read books with some tea and coffee throughout the day.
I overate a bit today on my portions. Hopefully it won't affect me too badly since I did well most of the week and I did get a lot of lengthy fitness walks in. I'm just calling this a rest day. I'm not sure how the next few days will go because they're predicting the same kind of weather and temperatures with several days of snow next week.
I'm already ready for Spring.
Time for some hot chocolate with fat free Cool Whip.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far. Praying we get an early Spring.
1. Ate healthy but overdid my portions today. :(
2. Walked for 30 minutes around the house.
