Wow! Weather And SparkPeople matter to me!
Friday, November 15, 2019
Living in the high desert of California we see the sun about 340 days a year. Today is one of the cloudy days and I am amazed at how much it affects my mood! I grew up in Northeastern Ohio and saw most of the winter it seemed without the sun. But when I came out here, p I started getting used to the sun every day. Yes, it gets quite hot in the summer, but it is at least with very little humidity. We have beautiful 🌇 sunsets and beautiful poppies in the springtime. There are certainly drawbacks ( like how brown it gets in the summertime in unplanted areas) but I do love it. When the sun is shining my mood is immediately upbeat and ready to go. On days like today it is much harder to get going and feel like accomplishing my exercise and healthy eating. (In fact I had a handful of Hershey’s kisses and I haven’t done that for awhile!) it would be so much harder without SparkPeople. It has become a habit to get on here every day and plan my meal, plan my exercise and check on my friends. I get lots of encouragement and good eating tips. So thank you for helping me all my SparkFriends and family through the cloudy days!
