    I've been doing the Minnesota workout - Put on 8 pounds of boots, jacket, snowpants, etc. Go outside, push shovel across driveway and sidewalks multiple times. Lift and throw wet heavy snow. Watch snowplow fill driveway back in, push and lift large chunks of snow left by plow. Work around gusts of wind, but snow will blow back in your face anyway. Try to help neighbor who is also struggling to move snow. Go back inside with clothes 5 pounds heavier from wet snow. Repeat this process regularly until April or even May. Both cardio and strength training in one workout! : ) - 12/4/2013 10:44:02 AM
  • I don't like the cold and since it gets dark at 530pm and don't get finished working until 7pm outside activities usually are out of the question. I do think that I might try to workout though while I am watching the television. Don't get me wrong I do have my workout time in the early mornings when I get out of bed. - 12/3/2013 3:01:24 PM
  • I don't like the cold but I still take my walk. - 9/12/2013 7:41:00 PM
  • It's supposed to be 97 today, which for Portland OR is pretty darn hot...
    I'll try and keep this stuff in mind for 2-3 months from now LOL. - 9/11/2013 12:17:55 PM
  • This gave me a chuckle- I suppose I am the only one in the world who still shovels snow! - 11/12/2012 12:40:20 PM
  • It's still 94 here in New Mexico. I wish it was cool! Too soon.

    There's no bad weather, only bad clothes. :)

    I've found that I can take all kinds of bad weather with enough layers and water repellent footwear and handwear. - 9/1/2012 9:41:45 AM

    No matter which season we are in we need to just keep moving forward and stay active. - 1/8/2012 8:10:36 AM
  • I agree with Trish. Please don't rush winter. It's 82 in NJ today. - 9/13/2011 6:29:13 PM
  • Geez! It's barely the middle of September! I'm not ready to hear about winter! - 9/13/2011 2:14:55 PM
