Most of the time, it's just a change of attitude that does the trick.
On Saturday night, I fought a blue mood with some intense house cleaning and a date with husband.
Today, I'm coping with caffeine (only 12 oz a day is my rule) and a change of location: a bright and bustling coffee shop.
But rather than try to distract, perhaps I should embrace the cold, the gray skies, the coats. It seems like every other time of the year has a "theme" we can look forward to- flowers in April, strawberries in May, sundresses in June, picnics in July, canning and cooking in August, harvest in September, October, November. Christmas in December.
Deprivation and fitness from January-March?
No no, this is supposed to be a positive post. Ok. go.
