January... I remember you. You lock us up in our houses with your bitter bite. You lock away the sun with your thick, gray clouds - binding us up with heavy coats and scarves. Yes, I remember. Your crisp breeze chills the fingers and toes, ears and nose. You cause cravings of rich, warm foods, and creamy, hot drinks yet hide our bodies away under layers of clothes. You leave behind your slippery remains, freezing roads and walkways, closing schools and businesses. And the worst part about you, January, is that you leave us only with February.... and yes, February, I remember you too.
Don't let winter get you down. Find a way to move your body. Go to the gym, jump on a treadmill or do a video workout (their are some great ones On Demand through many cable providers). Look up some circuit workouts here. Just get moving and get your blood flowing, it will make you feel so much better so you can beat the winter woes.
