My legs were still really sore when I woke up this morning, so I decided to take the day as an unofficial rest day. I'm really glad I did. Whenever I got up today, I would still realize how much my legs were hurting. I'm hoping by tomorrow they will be recovered enough to do my normal Monday routine.
But, I wanted to pass along some advice that I really love. Once the weather starts to get cold, it's really easy to stay home, sit in front of the TV, and eat without thinking about it. Of course, I would always encourage exercise, but no one can exercise all the time. So, if you find yourself sitting in front of the tv, I have some advice that will keep you from eating, just like magic.
My big advice? Find a hobby that requires two hands and can't get dirty. I have started to crochet an afghan for my son. I'm not the worlds greatest with a crochet needle, and to be honest, I don't know how to make anything other than afghans and hanger covers. But, it serves the purpose. It keeps me busy and keeps me from snacking. So, if you can find something to occupy your hands, you might just find that your mouth stays empty!
