I don’t live in Seattle, but every winter it becomes such a chore for me to work out.  Between the getting dark early and all the freaking clothes you have to put on, it’s easier for me to just veg out and sit by the fireplace.  I feel the same way about my hubby, I got all in shape for the wedding, and since I’ve let myself go…he deserves better.

I have good weeks and I have bad weeks. But, I find that I actually feel more motivated now that it gets darker earlier.


Less ppl looking at me I guess  :/

I’m not in Seattle, but pretty close in Vancouver.  I go to work in the dark, and come home in the dark… it’s definitely a little depressing, and hard to find motivation to work out, especially since my favourite exercise is an outside run.

I have major SAD- Seasonal affected disorder- and use a “sunlight” for an hour a day to combat it. I also have started taking vitamin D- and it has helped a lot.

Oh honey, I hear ya… I am starting to keep a calendar at home taped to my bathroom mirror where I’m going to log my exercise, whether it’s “2 miles on treadmill” or “walk around Greenlake”, etc.  That way, I have that daily reminder if I slack.  I’ll let you know if it helps to motivate me! 

I try to go to the gym straight from work too, that way I’m not tempted to go home and veg on my couch!

Good luck!
