    My favorite is doing some productive gardening. All extra movement moves us closer to our goals! - by HEALTHYIN2014
    Really enjoying my night walks. Also, lots of fun going to fall open markets and art shows within our community. All are within walking distance so I'm getting my Vitamin D too! emoticon emoticon - by 1STBUCKETITEM
  • I so agree...just getting up and moving is a form of exercising.
