It’s freezing here and I hate being cold.
18 degrees tonight? Really? I know for some of you this forecast probably looks rather balmy but for my Georgia born and hot yoga loving body this is unacceptable. I much prefer 100 degree southern summer days. I would rather sweat than shiver. You get the point. 😉
My stay warm strategy involves bundling up in as many clothes possible and consuming lots of hot food and beverages. I decked myself out in this ensemble at 6 a.m. this morning and grabbed Starbucks on my way to teach at Charlotte Athletic Club. My scarf and boots have not left my body today.
The yoga room at CAC is freezing sometimes. The temperature in the gym is kept at 68 degrees but this morning the yoga room was even colder due to the chilly, windy conditions outside and the floor to ceiling windows. Even with the space heaters blazing, we were still shivering. I actually ended up teaching in my boots because my feet were so cold. I made sure to be a little more aggressive with the flow and add in extra vinyasas to help my yogis build internal heat. They were troopers and happy at the end of class!
I grabbed an egg and cheese bagel on my way home from class. And another coffee which turned out to be a bad idea. It left me feeling kind of “ick” but didn’t stop me from getting back in bed (in my scarf and jacket) and taking a quick nap.
I spent the afternoon teaching another class, a private and working out. And now I am about to demolish some pizza. I should probably eat a salad first given that it’s been a couple days since anything green and not carb-based has entered my body!
Cold weather…love it or hate it? Cold yoga…love it or like to sweat?
On a positive note, one of the benefits of living in the South is that it’s supposed to be 65 degrees again by Saturday. 😉
