The Sun is Out

30 Mar

I woke up this morning listening to the birds sing.  I sat up in my bed thinking maybe, JUST maybe the sun is shining. Sure enough it is!!! I took a picture to capture this monumental moment.

Not a cloud in the sky. Can there really be an entire sunny day in Pittsburgh? Hmmm… I’ll let you know that after the day is done because, I have yet to see that happen. I will not dwell on that though. I will focus on the sun right now, it is shining!  Every curtain, blind and window covering in my house has been opened to let it in. I’m back to my cat status, chasing the sun-rays in the house and snuggling in the warm embrace of the ray. I better enjoy it now because I hear it is going to snow on Thursday :/

Hope it is sunny wherever you are. If so let me know!

Spring Workout

22 Mar

Here is my weekly post for Sweat Everyday. Posted on Tuesday of this past week. Enjoy!

Yesterday marked the first day of Spring , yet for many it was still chilly. Some of us even experienced snow flurries!

Outdoor-Spring-Running-Tips

The sun DID manage to peak out and shower us with sun-rays so, April decided it was time to get outside and workout. Maybe you can go outside, bundle up and get your workout on too. It’s never too cold (ahem-ok, April’s personal too low point is  40 degrees) to stay active.

If you need a quick idea on how to jump start your spring training just see April share her quick morning workout.

There is nothing like a change of seasons to help change your workouts or,  jump-start your workouts.

What you do for a quick workout on a brisk spring day?

Happy Spring Everyone!

Spring, really?

21 Mar

Supposedly spring is here. The vernal equinox was on March 2oth.

Someone forgot to tell Mother nature to check that off of her to do list because, the weather is no better here in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania than it was last month.

This past weekend I took son#3 to an Easter Egg hunt. He HAD to wear gloves, a jacket and mittens. Why? BECAUSE IT WAS COLD! Not Los Angeles, CA cold BUT, Pittsburgh, PA cold!

I HAVE NEVER thought of snow in Spring (unless you drive to it, far away, to snowboard). It amazes me that it is still below 30 degrees. The sun and I have a whole new relationship now. I am like a cat. Whenever the sun-rays come out I am ALL IN! I run to the window, snuggle up on the floor right in the one sun-ray that beams into the window for the few minutes of sun that will come in. I say few minutes because it is never a full day of sunlight.

I purchased Vitamin D and now take it because I could possibly develop rickets here from lack of sunlight. Are you laughing? I’m serious! As I sit here typing this it is 21 degrees outside and now the sun has been enveloped by clouds. Ho hum! Spring is coming! Oh wait, it’s already here!

Happy Spring!
