Time change

The time is about to change. My children will be lagging for about a week. And I will be staring at the snow, willing it to melt one final time. {Final may be overly optimistic at this point, but I'm sticking with it.}

As soon as the white stuff is a memory, I will resume my 5:30 a.m. class as I discovered that a one minute plank is difficult again. That's a sure sign that a class that once seemed routine will actually be fairly challenging once again.

Honestly, I prefer falling back to springing ahead. But falling {no energy needed} is always easier than jumping {loads of energy needed}. Physically and in all other ways too.


  1. I'm with you on the falling back, it's so easy to fall back on excuses and into bad habits....I'm GUILTY! I feel like I've lost all my springiness and it's for sure the time change on Sunday won't kick start it. I get tired just thinking about how tired I will be next week. I wish we could just stick with one time instead changing spring and fall. I wish I could stick with regular and consistent exercising too.

  2. Although I love the extra hour of sleep in the fall I don't suffer from a lag with the time change. I also don't suffer from jet lag coast to coast. I'm lucky I know.

    I'm glad for you that warmer weather and maybe some sunny days are ahead for you...

    that plank will come easier this time around

  3. I was hoping we were done with snow for the year too until Monday hit. (I think we had at least a foot!) The crazy thing is today was beautiful and the snow has pretty much all melted. I even took the kids out for a walk/run and it felt amazing. Spring is a time of rebirth for me too even if it does mean daylight savings.
