I don't know if it ever comes across or if anyone notices but I am not a happy guy in the winter. When I am out of work, it is even worse. I have zero motivation to get up and do anything. The ugly skies and cold temperatures conspire to keep me indoors. Having a job, some type of obligation to meet really kick starts my mojo and gets me going.
I run into the same thing in the winter - no motivation. Summer, sunlight, warmth? I'm out ALL the time when I'm not working. Yardwork. Mountain biking. Motorcycles. Cars. Projects. You name it, I go nonstop 16 hours a day, every day. Winter? Ahhhh, nope. I'll meet deadlines that include other people, but for myself? More often than not, I'll cave in to the chair and TV.
It was REALLY bad when I would drink. Now, though, I've quit that completely so at least that factor is gone.
Once I feel better, I'll be getting back on the rowing machine and the elliptical, to try and keep in shape during the cold months. I'm still a little leaky/sniffy/squeaky (like a cold) so I don't want to tax my system yet - I'll let it burn calories healing, instead of exercising. I figure next week I should be good to go.
I also need to order front end parts for the Charger - debating "do I get just bushings?" or "do I get adjustable control arms and the whole nine, and do it all while I'm in there?". We'll see...
I have the offset bushings in stock UCAs and got 4 degrees of caster. I'm told that I am lucky. Must be something to do with a favorable tolerance stack up in my favor but I saw no reason to use aftermarket tubular UCAs. That saves cash!
