So, I was home in Chicago for approximately two weeks before I had to get back on a plane and head to San Diego for work. To go from a winter wonderland to warm, sunny California was a bit jarring, to say the least. This was a work trip and I was indoors for the majority of each day but it was so, so nice to step outside for a few minutes and grab an iced coffee, all the way knowing it’s the middle of January.
I got home on Saturday and landed smack dab in the middle of what looked like a mild snowstorm. While I was really looking forward to being home, seeing Alex, and sleeping in my own bed, I have to say that I definitely didn’t miss the frigid temps and icy paths that have been plaguing Chicago for weeks now.
Since I have no immediate plans to travel again anytime soon, it’s time to try and get back into the swing of things. These random bursts of snow make it difficult to get to the gym regularly, but I’ve been pretty good about working out at home when I can’t brave the snow-covered streets. I also want to start working on my year-long goals, including what I’m currently calling Operation: Treat Yoself. But that’s for another post later this week. :)
How’s 2014 been going so far for you?
