Heat is Back!

I thought the area where I live had surpassed the scorching heat, but boy was I wrong!  We do have hot summers but usually not scorching until August.  The heat is back to 100 degrees for today and tomorrow and now the humidity level is up too :(  The humidity is actually making outdoor workouts more uncomfortable than the 100 + degrees we experienced earlier in the month.

Despite all of the above whining, I still walked outdoors this morning.  My son and I have been hanging out for a couple of hours each day.  My daughter has cheer camp in another town, so he gets my undivided attention which we have both enjoyed.  Today we spent our time walking at that town's park.  It was already hot and humid at 10:00 a.m.  We walked three + miles together and then walked out to the pond to feed the ducks and geese.  He was so nice about working out with me before he could play.  I feel so blessed to have such a caring son. 

This heat has presented a real challenge when it comes to working out.   For some reason, I just can't force myself onto the treadmill during the summer. I love walking and jogging outdoors, so staring at my living room's wall just isn't enticing.  I know that when winter gets here I won't have any choice but stare at that wall, so until then it is all outdoors for me. 


  1. It's back here too. The last two days we were under a heat advisory which was awful! I hope we all get a break soon.

  2. I agree Diane - it makes finding motivation to workout even more challenging.
