Even though spring is just around the corner, today it was -13 but it felt much colder with that wind ripping through me. Being outside all day on days like today takes a lot out of you. Just the energy that your body uses to keep warm burns up so many calories and fat that it’s difficult to stay replenished day after day.
The key to staying warm for a long period of time is to build up your body and energy like you’re building a fire.
If you find yourself getting cold use these nice easy steps to get warm again and to stay warm:
- Start with a quick fuel of simple sugars ie a chocolate bar (the tinder of your fire)
- Build on it with carbohydrates ie a peanut butter sandwich (the sticks of your fire)
- To keep the fire going are fats ie put butter in hot chocolate (the logs of your fire)
I hope that you stay warm until the sun will keep you warm all day long!
