I was completely motivated last fall and winter and I am hoping to stay that way this year. I actually enjoyed walking in the winter which showed me how motivated I was to get into shape.

Good! Easier to get outside for cardio. Hunting and fishing are prime, places I love to go aren't jammed with tourists. . . Perfect!

I can't wait. We've had such a long hot summer.

We are having fall weather in my area right now. The leaves are starting to change colors, and the temperature got into the 50's yesterday. I can't wait for the next high school football game to sit in the cool night air, drink an icy cold Coke, and listen to everyone cheer for their favorite team!

I love fall. For me, it's the best time for hiking. Winter, not so much, but I am lucky I have a gym at work, so I will continue to keep in hiking shape throughout winter. I even have microspikes to trudge through the snow on a hike if need be. :D.

I'm glad because I seem to do better with exercise when it's cooler.

I love fall, hate winter and not looking forward to dealing with 'New Year Resolutionist' crowd at the gyms. I applaud people trying to get in shape, but I am not looking forward to super-busy gyms and complete lack of gym etiquette. I also totally hate the frozen early winter mornings, when I get out of my warm cozy bed and into dark super cold nothingness just to get to the gym at 5 am.

Here in Houston, that's when I actually DO go outdoors. In the summer, no way. Heatstroke is not my idea of fun.

Falls great, winter depends. We tend to get ice here, which can hinder outside workouts (especially as I live on a hill) emoticon

I'm looking forward to it - it's the time of year that I can get outside. I stick to my treadmill and inside during the summers here in Florida.

I will exercise outside until it is 40 degrees then I move indoors to treadmill/WII/yoga etc. I really like fall but summer is definitely my favorite.

I love the changing of all of the seasons. And there is ALWAYS a way to get in exercise, just takes a little adjusting. As far as eating goes, well, I am not going to blame the season for poor choices I might make.

I do the least exercise in hot weather but my food choices are the best.
I do more exercise in Fall and Spring
Winter is the hardest food wise

I'm relatively good at keeping active during the fall & winter. And I like it because the gym is less busy! Although, I guess that isn't a good thing from a public health perspective.

Use the x-bike or walk power laps throughout the house. Don't let a blizzard or the deep freeze stop the workouts. Whatever it takes.

Like you I'm planning on what I'll do for the winter, gym? walking up my apartment stairs (14floors) ? exercise videos? recreation centre classes? sparkpeople videos? dancing? I don't know, but I should do something, besides walking through malls, I've learned that is too costly.
