Winter Wonder(when it will end)land

Let me start by saying that winter is my number 2 favorite season of the year but, after all this yucky weather, may quickly move to the bottom. I love snow and the crisp cold air but the weather has been absolutely ridiculous this year. It has hindered my travel to and from work and school and played havoc with my exercise goals. So much so that the weight I lost the first 2 weeks of the 5% challenge has almost all come back.

I need to get control again. Besides not exercising much, I've been eating way out of my calorie range. I don't even want to mention the high fat, high salt stuff I've found on my plate. And my water bottle is wondering if we're breaking up because I'm spending less time carrying it around. (I almost feel like I'm forcing in my 8 cups a day.)

Anyone out there have some favorite indoor exercise they like to do, especially if there is no equipment to use? I do like this one indoor walking video I found but I'd like some variety.

    Girl - I am in NY and am so sick of this brutal winter. It snowed yet again last night....ugh!!
    Anyway I do all my workouts at home. Look into JessicaSmithtv on Youtube. She has a awesome collection of free workouts you can do with no equipment or with a mat and a couple of weights. She has a diverse collection including cardio, walking workouts, ST and pilates routines.
    She is one of my favorite trainers right now.

    I think this winter has been hard in everyone. Have you looked at the Spark exercise videos?

    the weather has been rotten. we have had school closures and bad roads and general lethargy that comes from this cold. i exercise in my basement so i am fine indoors but i am finding i miss the sunlight. Winter will be over soon and we will wonder where all the time went.

    I have a treadmill, but I enjoy putting my laundry on the sofa in the front room, and carrying 1 piece (sock, shirt whatever) 1 at a time and carry it into my bedroom, folding it or walking in place and folding by my bed, doing this one load gets me 1500 to 2000 steps, and them I walk some more putting it all away, something I really do enjoy, more than my treadmill

    Hope you find something you enjoy. I have a treadmill and love it. I gained from the last challenge as well and am working on getting it back off. You can do it.
