Default When it gets warmer...

...I'm going to try walking to the grocery store a couple times a week.

What will you do when it warms up?

It's not that we can't do things now. Like I don't care about the cold, I just throw on a jacket and gloves and it's all good (and it's not 30 below here) but the icy sidewalks/streets make walking hazardous. I'm really looking forward to walking to as many places as possible this spring.

Hike! I can't wait to hike again! Just grab the dog, my camelback and maybe my husband and run to the mountains. It's in the 60's in Denver right now, but I know the trails are all cold and nasty so I have to wait until later in the spring

I'll flip this over to suit my geographical positioning

When it gets colder.... I want to find an eco-friendly way of heating my house.

When it warms up I would like to go walking with friends occasionally. Of maybe even by myself. I'll have to have my mom drop me off somewhere though, we live right off highway and I'm not walking on that badboy.

Definitely hike!!
Also I want to start my running program again. Once the days got shorter and colder, it was very difficult to do.
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.

When it warms up I am going to take lots of walks by the river with my two little girls. I did that almost everyday last spring and summer and it was wonderful!

Hiking and biking. My kids love doing both with me and I love the one on one time with them. This year though I look forward to tackling more difficult hikes. Can't wait!
There are alot of all season hikes around here but the slopes get so slippery and muddy this time of year so I will wait until the spring when things dry out a bit.

One of these for every five pounds lost

ha i'm such a weather-whiner!!! it's too hot, it's too cold, so there's about 3 days a year i actually WANT to walk outside LOL So i'm very happy our city built a ginormous arena, and it's open 7 days /week for people to walk! toasty in the winter, cool in the summer! and they give you a pedometer to use if you want, or they have 'trails' mapped out for a mile, 2 or 3 miles,etc., and a 'blitz' in the middle of running up and down the stadium steps -- WOW i felt like ROCKY the first time i did the smallll one!! i'm working my way up to medium! whooo!

Started: 323
Now: 171 - nope, 165 now!
NOPE -- 162 now! Holy crap i've lost a PERSON!
Goal: 160

I moved to a neighborhood that has a lot of outdoor recreational activities, so I will be hiking/walking, swimming, hopefully boating (if I can find an inexpensive canoe or boat), and biking. I walk a little in the winter, but not like I do in the summer. It's pretty cold and my sidewalk doesn't get plowed in the winter (and the street is kinda busy). I do try to get around the block a couple of times a week, more for the sunlight than exercise.

I'm trying to get in as much time exercising outside now while it's nice out. We have super hot summers here and the only thing I'll do then is swim. I'm hoping we'll have a pool of our own by summer, but if not I'll be heading to the lake. I'm so thankful for my treadmill and exercise bike in the summer, inside with air conditioning!

In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins... Not through strength, but through Persistence.

When it gets warmer I am definitely going to take my cardio outside and I want to do more hiking. We used to do a lot of hiking and it was amazing some of the hikes we went on - I want to go back to what we used to do.
