7 Smart Ways to Stay Active This Winter
Don't Let Cold Weather Destroy Your Efforts

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.
