For any equestrians out there this is the best time of the year to ride. The bugs are gone, leaves crumble under the horse's hooves, and you can bundle up to keep warm. Go bareback and give your legs a nice strength workout.

I like to ride the bike in front of a big window facing the forest at the Wellness Center. I'm trying to guess which tree will have the last leaf

I keep eyeing the leaves still in our trees and wooded lot and am waiting for more to fall before taking the rake in hand and getting them up. That's the 1st task, 2nd will be dumping them in my garden bed and tilling them in.

How about decorating your home for the upcoming holidays? Its gotten a lot colder here in Jacksonville, NC and I am feeling the urge to bake, shop & wrap, and decorate not only the inside of my home but the outside. First comes yard clean up then the creative juices happen to decorate the outside a little different each year with what I have. emoticon emoticon emoticon

DH and I have a huge veggie garden with a flower garden to match.
There is tons of garden clean up to do in the fall - yesterday's activity was cutting down hostas and raking leaves for almost 3 hours....whew!

Sounds to me like KAPELAKIN has a fall workout well planned!

How about this one- scrapping the windshield and windows of your car in the mornings and stomping about to keep warm!

Suzymarc, thanks for the reminder that my car needs a wax before the winter weather hits.

I am working on running farther now that the weather has cooled off. Couldn't seem to build up my endurance when it was 80+ out there.

There are 47 perennial plants out in my yard waiting to be planted, and plenty of other yard work to do to get ready for winter - raking, mulching, pulling up the tomatoes, and I'm planning to build some raised veggie beds with cinder blocks, so that should be quite a workout. Oh, and 2 cords of wood needing to be split and stacked!

Voluntary Discomfort is the secret cornerstone of strength. We build our whole lives around increasing comfort and avoiding discomfort, and yet by doing so we are drinking a can of Weakness Tonic with every morning’s breakfast. ~Mr. Money Mustache

Here's a good one- Fall house cleaning, I am talking about some serious scrub downs, changing of curtains, washing windows, bed linens and blankets. Yes, I took this on today and I am so proud of myself for getting it all done from the ceiling to the floors.

Garage saling. My neighbor hood has a HUGE multifamily garage sale twice a year spring and fall. This saturday is the fall one. It is dozens of blocks and hundreds of families you can walk for hours. You couldn't drive if you wanted to it is much to crowded we can't get out of our drive way LOL. Want me to pick you up anything? emoticon

I so wish we had apple orchards near us so I could go picking since from my blogs folks will know I don't mind putting in the labor for good home grown produce- alas no apple orchards I can find in coastal NC emoticon

How about raking those leaves as an activity, that burns some serious calories if you keep at it and have your tunes playing. emoticon

I do enjoy going to Fall festivals and walking around and looking at all the different booths. I also love going to the apple orchards and picking our own apples. It is a good workout!!

Walking at the beach is still my favorite - all the crowds are gone and the boardwalk is much less crowded. It's my favorite time of year for enjoying the local attractions in what is, in summer, a humanity-packed tourist town.

With Temps. in the 40's to 50's like to nature trail walk around the area. Our community has t areas devoted to walking. Like to watch the leaves turn, sides of paths are tree lined.

Hi Team,
emoticon Fall has officially arrived here in coastal NC with cooler temps and no humidity emoticon

Since we are seeing in not only a new month, OCTOBER but a season Fall I thought it would be fun for us to list ways of how we like to move in the fall.

So add your suggestion or favorite in- here we go.....
