Rain, rain, rain...

Monday, March 15, 2010

It is raining in central New Jersey for the fourth day in a row. Not raining hard, just occasional sprinkles, but still rain. Still dreary and dark. Daylight savings time? We've had no daylight to save yet!

Saturday night was the worst part of the storm - heavy rain, high wind, lots of trees and power lines down. I was one of the lucky ones that didn't lose power. Some places in my area are still without power, including some buildings on the college campus where I work.

It's really hard to be motivated to eat right or work out when you haven't seen the sun in days, isn't it?

    I know what you mean about not feeling motivated when it's gloomy for so long; my weekend was like that. Not bad weather, just no sun and not nice enough to go outside.

    I saw stories on that storm on the news; glad you are ok and didn't lose power.

    All last week it rained here and its been gloomy and foggy here since then as well. Its so BLAH! I don't remember that last time we saw the sun :( But we have water sitting everywhere. We have a crick that runs right by our house and its been years (probably since I was little) that we've been able to see the water flow from our house...guess what!? Its plump full...I can see the water roaring by! AND there still alot of snow to melt! I bet it runs over.

    But I just want to see the sun...even if for 1 day!!!

    It sure is! I don't suffer from S.A.D., but I know folks who do, and all the rain, gloominess, lack of sun, etc. really takes a toll.

    I hope it clears up soon!

    Ohhh...how I agree with you! It's very hard to get motivated. Over our dreary weekend I mustered up the energy for a run and felt SO GOOD after, so if you can find the energy it ends up being just the boost you need! Have a great week!!

    I laughed so hard when I read 'We've had no daylight to save yet'. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny in the afternoon and 57 degrees. That should help. This rain definitely stinks and its getting in the way of my life too, but DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT LET IT GET IN THE WAY OF YOUR SUCCESS. You are so much better than that! Breathe in, Breathe out and make a good choice. I'm pulling for you!!!!

    I'm sorry to hear that you have been getting so much rain, and a shortage of sunlight .
    Thank goodness, they now have light fixtures that emit a brighter white light !
    But, that is certainly not the same as having a bright, sunny day !
    I just hope that the weather will brighten up for all of you in New Jersey !
    To help you along, I'll send you a Sunshine goodie right now !
    All the best on your SparkPeople journey !
