Cold Shower: Days Three, Four, Five & Six

I cheat.  I take a fully hot shower just the way I like it but turn the water to cold for 30 seconds in the middle.  I try to stay under for 15-second each side.  But most of my body is hanging out of the cold water.  I screech the entire time.  Matt laughs and tells me my noises are too inappropriate to do this when we have house guests over the weekend. 
After 30-seconds I turn the water back to hot and warm up.  I find that my face feels really good after the splash of cold and so I don’t hit my face with hot water again.  Still, I know I’m cheating.  I’m nowhere near the three minutes Dr. Oz’s guest  recommended.  Half my body is always hanging out of the water.  And since I reheat I don’t get the invigorating feeling I got after the first day.  But I know I won’t stick to this challenge if I have to get in cold water and stay in cold water.  My new goal is to build up the time (and actually get my body in the water).

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
