Snowed In

Like much of the United States right now, my part of the country is currently receiving winter weather like we rarely receive. It’s been below freezing for well over a week, and after getting about half an inch of freezing rain last week, we have gotten about 7 inches of snow this week with more coming down as I type. I am very averse to driving in the snow, so unless I have somewhere I need to be (which, fortunately, I don’t!), I am not very eager to get out in this wintry weather, so I have been spending more time at home than I have in a very long time.

I am fortunate that I really love my home and that my school is 100% online, and that I can work from home, too. I am also fortunate that I can do most of my hobbies from home, too, like reading and knitting. I have also been watching some Modern Family, which has been hilarious so far and has been helping to buoy my mood.

I do miss getting out to exercise and to walk my pup, though. We had been in a good routine of walking a route we really like that is about 2.5 miles and takes about an hour to walk 5 days a week, and I had been in a great schedule of going to the gym or barre class 6 days a week. Last week and this week are somewhat nice breaks from both of those, but I am definitely missing the exercise that both of those activities bring. Our weather is supposed to be really good next week, so I should be able to get back into my walking and exercising groove, and I am trying to remind myself that in the grand scheme of things, a couple weeks of a very sedentary lifestyle won’t hurt me too much!
