Obligation of Exercise? NAH! Motivation of exploration!

Well I'm going to have to call it; I need to find an exercise that works for me. I know the things I do love already. Walking namely. My god the walking I do would put Frodo to shame. I walk everywhere, partially because being a university student I can't afford a car, but mostly because I love smelling the fresh air, feeling the elements, seeing the faces, and moving about. However, in terms of 'getting fit" walking isn't really appropriate anymore for me. Those muscles are so toned since I've been walking since I was a child, and with me losing a decent number of lbs, it's not doing much besides adding personal joy and pleasure (so of course I still will!).
I love swimming as well. And in the summer I live next to a swimmable pond- it's now winter.. and I COULD go to the public pool, but I always feel sickly whenever I leave.
I like the concept of exercising at home. I've tried a few spark videos (I have a soft spot for the bollywood dance ones). I've tried p90x and Jillian michaels, and those seem to stick for about a week then get chucked aside. I'm a little embarrassed by this, I need to sort something out.
I think for now I may snoop around SparkPeople's videos a bit more.
