For me, I have to walk to and from work each day during the week despite how cold it is so I just bundle up and do it. However, when it comes to doing anything else outside in the cold weather I've turned to some indoor exercising like dancing or doing some of the things on my Wii, like the tennis, bowling, baseball, or boxing.
The tennis is the one I tend to stick with cause, at least I move around a lot with that one and it seems to burn the most calories of all of them. Oh and I have also tried out a few of the workout videos that you can find right on sparkpeople like the 10 minute jumpstart cardio or the 15 minute ab workout. They also have a 6 minute butt blasting workout and a 15 minute desk workout. I mix it up, doing one workout throughout the week and then another one the next week.

I was on vacation and did not take the time to stop by SparkPeople. It is hard to believe that it has been almost a month since I had logged in.
On the positive side, vacations are wonderful for walking. On the high side, I walked over 13,000 steps. On the down side, my lowest day was about 500 steps.
Since I have been back, I have averaged about 3,000 steps a day. Not nearly enough, to get me where I want to be. I can make up all sorts of excuses, instead I am asking for advice. How do you handle cold weather and exercise?
There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results. - Kenneth Blanchard
