According to the calendar, Spring starts on Thursday. Although having just been outside it’s hard to believe we haven’t slipped back in time to the middle of January. The average high right now is supposed to be around 50. According to my Weatherbug it’s currently 29 degrees. Only 21 degrees below normal. In the middle of March. This has been a long harsh winter. It’s time for Old Man Winter to get his grumpy butt out of here. It’s time for some warmth. At least we’ve missed out on several snow chances this month. There have been a few snowstorms around, but they’ve all been shunted to the south courtesy of the media flavor of the month, the good old Polar Vortex. How many times have we heard about the PV this winter. Way too many times if you ask me. The PV can bugger off back to its polar home where it belongs. Bring on the 60’s and 70’s.
When it gets as cold as this, we tend to hibernate. I have to admit, I don’t like extreme cold and I don’t like extreme heat. Am I too fussy? Just give me 60’s and 70’s, and if we want to head to the beach, some 80’s would be good. Yes, I admit it, I’m a wimp. I’m from Britain, where it rarely gets too hot or too cold. More often than not, the temperature is just right. Why do I suddenly feel like a character from the Goldilocks fairytale?
Anyway, I have to admit, I could stand to lose a few pounds. As I’ve already indicated, I hibernate during the winter. And working from home makes it all to easy to hide yourself away. Thankfully I’ll be able to take advantage of our Vitality range with our company. We have products that help us have a good workout, that gives us plenty of fiber and products that help us lose weight. Once we get some decent mild weather we’re going to go walking. We have an amazing snack bar that is scientifically designed to allow our body to burn excess fat. And it tastes great! Bonus!
So bring on the warm sunny days, when the girls wear fewer clothes and I can get my legs out again. I’m ready to walk!
