I have always loved the month of March.
Even though the temperatures are often still chilly, it brings the first signs of spring and signals the end of winter.
I’ve also always loved the old folklore for March– if it comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb, and vice versa. I lovedwaiting to see how the month will begin, and I often find that that old saying proves true.
March definitely blew in like a lion for me, and not just with regards to the weather. The past few days have been so busy I could barely stay on top of everything. Work has finally picked back up and I’m working every day again. My course has really intensified and the projects are taking more time to complete. I’m also still trying to sort out my EI, the laundry and dishes are never ending, we bought a house, I’m behind on my book club book, the Hubster and I had a date night… life is full, my lovelies. Life is full.
Also, I have a confession: I have only been running once.
It’s been such an insane week, and the weather hasn’t helped. I made it out on Tuesday, but then temperatures dipped back down to -15 with blowing snow on Wednesday and Thursday and I wasn’t brave enough to go out. I hope to go out tomorrow morning if the weather cooperates, but I think I may have been a little preemptive in making March my running month.
So, I’m going to alter it a bit: I’m going to exercise every day this month, starting tomorrow. One of the teachers at a local school spent an hour showing me and another teacher a bunch of great leg and ab exercises during our prep this week, and I am excited to try them out. I still plan to run as often as I can, but -15 is too cold for me!
And now, I am beyond ready for bed. I’m off to curl up in bed with a book.
