    You'll just have to do what I do; when the alarm goes off, swing your feet over the side of the bed and stand up. Don't just lay there or you'll never get out of the bed.

    yes i def. agree............i think it's normal tho.......notice how the gym always picks up when the spring starts.........and when the summer ends, fall starts and around the holidays it slows down a little..........then picks up again after the new year.........i guess its just mental.......when you see people on the beach, shorts, tank tops.....is makes you want be in better shape....but in the winter its just sweatshirts, jackets........no one really sees...i guess......and the days seem shorter.......ugh......i hate when it startS getting dark @ like 4, 5pm......... ........but anyways......not me, this winter..........i promised myself i'm gonna work even harder.....gotta be in sick shape for next summer...........

    Hell no, not me. I love the cold, I want to work out when it's cool outside. In the summer I don't want to do a damn thing, the heat and humidity make me so lazy and tired.

    I'm a NY boy born and raised, I went to college in another state for 2 years, and couldn't wait to return to NY when I was gone. I've had friends move to Cali and come back within a year. They all say the same thing NY gets into your blood. No matter how much you want to get away, you will always come back. There is no other place in the world like NY. Even when I go on vaction to the Bahammas or anywhere, after a week or so I'd rather be back in NY. I don't know I just love it.

    In the cold weather I feel way more energetic. Especially doing cardio....in the cold I can run or cycle for hours. Dunno why, I have always thought it it was because it seemed like breathing hard in the cold is easier.

    Winter is the time I get a lot done. My motivation doesn't tend to be too directed by the weather/season/climate. I try to keep hittin' it if I am in Maui, the Mediterranean, or Vancouver BC.

    Well, here in San Diego "Winter" means 75 degrees instead of 80. But it gets "real cold" (like 45-50) at night sometimes, which is really sweet. I always love getting up and it's cold out, gets me pumped up.

    So the short story is, if you don't like the cold, move to Sunny San Diego!

    I get sad when it's winter.. I think it has to do with the lack of sunlight. Less sunlight= less serotonin = worse mood.

    Pretty does not equal practical. Although the first big snow of the year is fun.. all the other snows suck ass.

    I'd rather be able to go to the beach and see some bikini ass on Christmas day than I would be sitting inside looking at snow out on the ground!! Not that we get much snow in this part of Texas (usually ice if anything), but it's still too cold and windy to get outside and do anything. I am stuck inside my office most of the time at work...so I enjoy being able to be outside, which sucks if you are cold!

    The only thing good about winter is hunting season. Once I go deer and quail hunting about 6-7 times it could go ahead and warm up and I'd be fine.
