I love colder temperatures, I love dark nights and using the fireplace. Everything about winter appeals to me, except of course for snow. My biggest problem with winter has only developed lately.
Winter seems to bring on the weight gain. It's the perfect time for hot, fatty home-cooked foods and staying inside spending time reading or talking with Nathan. There is no bike riding and very little walking outside.
This year is the first time I've noticed this. I just got back in from being on my bike for the first time this spring and I feel sufficiently wiped out. I hope this doesn't last too long.
