And it’s actually somewhat spring-like outside. Still a bit on the cool side and it gets low enough during the nights to put frost on the ground, but it’s improving. The daily temps vary enough that it’s hard to tell whether to wear a light or heavy jacket in the morning and by afternoon you’ve usually made the wrong choice. The trees aren’t budding yet and the flowers are still hiding, but it won’t be too much longer before things stop being mostly brownish and the world fills with color.
At which point I’m going to try motivating myself to start exercising a bit starting off with brisk walks to get the heart pumping. Last time I was weighed I was back up to 296 pounds and it’s causing me all sorts of irritations such as not being able to sleep on my back. So it’s time I get off my ass and try to lose a few pounds. We’ve got a lovely nature preserve right beside us with a walking path just begging to be walked all over. My success rate at motivating myself to exercise is notoriously bad so we’ll see how well this goes, but I’m going to give it a shot. If nothing else it’ll be nice to get a little fresh air in me and see what the ducks and other wildlife are up to.
