Wish I had a place to go swimming regularly..... that was one of my favorite activities in those good old kid days.

I'm way up north.... and the heat and humidity have been just as horrendous here this summer as in Florida. I've never done well with hot sticky days so my exercising can suffer in the summer if I don't work at getting it done.

I have small AC unit to cool two bedrooms..... so the larger floor space at foot of one bed has become my pilates/yoga & strength training cave for the summer LOL.
My "indoor cardio space" is downstairs with big old floor fan aimed directly at me (late at night or very early in morning)... while doing dvds mostly. But.....when we get breaks between heatwaves, I try to fit in a little outdoor activity (and hopefully something other than mowing etc)..... like today we are having the only nice day this week so I arranged the time so I could go for a lovely escape and walk the beach !!!!

I guess I should have figured it out that you were in Miami when I saw your user name.
Sound like you are doing great with your exercise and teaching children to swim is great.

Hi,
I'm in Miami. The weather is hot and very humid, as usual. It's in the low to mid 90's with 55% humidity, the heat index is 98 degrees, yuck! This year seems to be a good one for me. I'm able to tolerate the weather without getting heat exhaustion. In previous years I had a hard time. I don't know how i'm doing so well, but I am. One thing i'm doing different is drinking powerade zero and water about every hour. I swim, so it's not so bad, but still, I need to hydrate myself a lot. I also take air conditioning breaks. That helps, too. I joined a gym that has an air conditioned pool, but right now most of my exercise is done teaching swimming to children. It's a great way to loose weight and beat the heat :) I'm a nebee and it's good to be here. Thanks for reading my post

I am in Florida also. I am near Destin up in the pan handle. Are you near me RESAMARIE or are you in the peninsula?
I have been exercising indoors or in the pool. I just don't tolerate the heat plus humidity anymore.
Hope every one is enjoying their Wednesday where ever they are!

I'm in Ohio and it has been hot and muggy too! I haven't done much of anything. This morning was actually cool and less humid, but that will change soon enough.

I am using my rebounder and using my pedometer indoors! Florida is in the high 90's. My dogs are so eager to go for walks but the humidity is bad too. emoticon
