Winter Weight

by Stephanie Casher on February 5, 2006

Ever catch yourself walking by a mirror and gasp, wondering “Where the hell did THAT come from???” lol Well, my habit during winter is to hunker down and hibernate, so I accept the fact that over the holidays I’m going to gain a little ‘winter weight.’ Now that the temperatures are starting to warm and the skies are beginning to clear, I’m realizing it’s time for me to get off my ass and get moving again. Cardio. Yoga. There is no time like the present. It will be swimsuit season before we know it and I may be in the Islands as early as April.

So it’s time to start riding again. Spent all day yesterday cruising around town on my bike. The Groundhog may have signaled six more weeks of winter, but it was gorgeous and sunny in Santa Cruz…

My ride started up at UCSC, looking down at my lovely, little ocean town.

Then I rode down into town and North on Highway One towards Wilder Ranch…

Then back into town, cruising along West Cliff…

Even stopped at Steamer’s to watch the surfers for awhile… There was some kind of surfing competition going on…

It was a great day and being out in the sunshine really energized me. I think its time to shake off winter and start thinking about the ways we can prepare for the coming of Spring. It’s the start of a whole new cycle of birth and renewal!
