  • I hate winter. I hate snow and the cold and winter sports. the only exercise I get is to go out and shovel the snow so I can get out of my driveway. I basically just hibernate for 6 months. So wish that I could move to Florida where winter lasts a day or two.
  • I live in Florida and I think our winter just left. We are having spring type weather. Sun Shining, 80 degrees yesterday... I don't envy those of you who live in the snow at all!!

    I have pastures to care for, fences to mend and downed trees that need burned... I'll be moving more than ever!! WooHoo
  • These are great ideas but there are not enough warm clothes or layers for the record temps we are having. When it gets up to the freezing mark I'll take some outdoor time. :)
  • it's hard to go outside and be active when right now its -16 here:(
  • Having a dog to take for walk-runs every day is a blessing. And he never complains about the weather. Dress for the weather and keep moving is the key to dealing with the weather
    I like all these ideas ice skating, snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, workout ideas, racing, using cardio/strength machines, and indoor swimming/water jogging and group fitness c lasses/sports.
    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! : )
  • 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.
  • I don't like the cold but I still take my walk.
  • 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.
  • This gave me a chuckle- I suppose I am the only one in the world who still shovels snow!
  • 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.

    No matter which season we are in we need to just keep moving forward and stay active.
