I live in Georgia and we have had a tough winter so far and I can't imagine going out into the cold to exercise. I have started to walk with Leslie Sansone and then I use the Xbox 360 Kinect with the children. It requires a lot of movement and it definitely gets the heart rate up. Good exercise for those days when you can't get outside.
Xbox 360 Kinect also offers Zumba dance which will be great exercise. So excited!!!

Detect patterns through journaling and calendar notes
The notes you enter on SparkPeople or in a written journal will help you detect habits or patterns that can be improved. This will allow you to change patterns that thwart your progress, strengthen those that move you closer to goal, and develop options for any that trip you up. The calendar is useful because you can anticpate upcoming events and put alternatives into place.
Premenstrual cravings are common, and if you know you like sweets or salty items you can have healthy options on hand. Holidays, vacations and meetings can be planned. Seasonal trends can be addressed (I realize I made excuses when it rained not to go out, so I substitute indoor exercise.)
