Most days I will just dress for whatever the weather is outside unless it is REALLY nasty (like rain and hail) - cold I find great because I walk all that much faster!

It was POURING rain this morning and the good news is that I could go to the gym. Unless it is snowy and icy if I can't get to the gym, I will bundle up and walk outside. Last year we were snowed in and I did a couple of exercise videos from Sparkpeople. And I put on dance music and danced around the house.

I do something every day although one or two days/week I don't go all out.

Persistence is more important than perfection.

Don't assume your freedoms are assured.

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

When there is snow outside, my exercise is shoveling it.

When it is cold outside it sure makes me move faster - no bad weather just bad fashion choices or so they say - try to get out no matter what the weather is like but I dress for it! Plus snow shoeing is my favourite exercise!

I cut my long run from 20 to 14 miles. But that was only because no one else wanted to run with me and I won't run 20 miles in an ice storm solo.

I am in the Twin Cities region of Minnesota. My suburbs got 10 inches of snow yesterday alone and it's still snowing this morning. I had to call in to my part time job yesterday evening because the driving was dangerous and I will probably have to cancel plans today because the roads are still in bad shape.

However, I have a good library of workout DVDs so I got a good workout in yesterday and today; weather is no excuse in my book. In addition to that, I also got some bonus activity shoveling snow twice yesterday and again today. Plus, I made good nutrition choices too.

Yes it is spring, but us Wisconsinites are having a snowy icy day. So what do you do for a day like today? I actually going to watch what I eat and a rest day, I exercise 6 days in the roll I deserve it!
