I suggest to do what you normally do when it's not winter. If it's just cold but no snow, then put some heavier clothes on you and go do ot. If you have snow, you can do typical winter activities( building snowmen, snow angels, skating , snowboarding etc).

Well, I live in Minnesota and winter is no excuse for many of us here. I run races all year round and walk often outside too. I have traction aids if needed and may choose to walk/run in the road against traffic if the sidewalks are less maintained than the road.

People here have fat tire bikes and use them to bike all year round. We skate, ski (downhill and cross-country), and snow shoe. I don't technically consider fishing exercise but people ice fish here. Little fish house villages appear on some of the bigger lakes.

Perfect opportunity to try something new! One Suggestion: find a good local class for Tai Chi...or go buy a Tai Chi DVD. Its gentle, and really helps us "seniors" keep flexibility and balance.

Hello Noraspat,

I hear you, Winter is definitely more challenging for me too....but there are so many opportunities for indoor cardio. It is best to just embrace Winter and do indoor stuff. Here is an article with ideas that will likely give you other ones too:

It is really difficult to come back when you have had a lapse. I tried to do the same routine and it was a bit of a disaster.
I was happy doing my same as before and after the next days I was stiff and aches and depressed.
I will try just a bit of stretches and getting moving. I used the summer doing garden work but the work is so different as the exercises . Now it is a new beginning. My weight is still the same but the energy and eagerness to begin will have to go slow.
Winter is a whole difference than the other seasons especially when I am are a Senior now. Exercises are much more difficult but it has to get done. It was eagerly done about a few years back and I must find an exercise routine when the snow is on the ground.
