Anything that doesn't "count" as exercise. So like playing racquetball. Or water-skiing/wakeboarding/tubing. Definitely kayaking.

Cleaning out my grandma's house the other day we found a Skip-it that still worked in the play room. That was kind of fun. As were the light-up hula hoops and Twister game. All were much easier at 10 than at 32

Recumbent stationary bike at the rec center: I can work up a sweat and my messed up ankles and knees feel awesome afterwards.

Dancing, because it's just so fun and doesn't feel like exercise and I'm guaranteed a "woo woo" from my husband if he walks in while I'm doing it. I'm planning to try a Zumba class at the rec center after I get to ONEderland, have to get a little more weight off of my joints first.

Swimming: it's so quiet and peaceful under the water and again it's great for my joints and I just feel light when I'm doing it. The rec center pool is being renovated right now; can't wait for it to open back up.

Swimming is my absolute favorite, but not very practical since I rarely have access to a pool. My favorite right now though is cycling, nothing beats riding your bike in the fall when the air is slightly chilly and you can hear the leaves crunching under your tires.

if I could play volleyball everyday, I would!! unfortunately no one I know likes volleyball and the city league adult teams are SUPER competitive so I stay out of that

I love walking, wandering around the local streets and docks, especially the docks....I love the water although i'm terrified of swimming

I love running too, both at the gym and outside

if there were no bears around here, I would TOTALLY be out on the trails more

I am currently doing only weight training and seeing good results from that, because I had to take a break from running for my foot

what else do I like?.....basketball, tennis, badminton, deep house cleaning (does that count?), water aerobics, zumba and hip hop classes....most of which I don't really participate in but at some point would like to...and ice skating, which I ADORED as a child and cannot anymore because if I fall, I will seriously injure my back

I'm enjoying Barre body sculpt classes -- intense, but just when you think you can't do a move any longer, it moves on to something else, and time flies. Oh, and it works! I also like TRX -- where you hang from straps and lift your own body weight. I've seen a lot of progress, and it's the only thing that's really worked to reduce my arms. I love Zumba, too -- and any kind of dancing. Other than that, I read while walking on the treadmill. If I have a good book, I really look forward to it! And, with cooler weather coming, I can't wait to walk outside this fall.

Walking, I love walking around my neighborhood. I meet neighbors, find stores, and I also get much needed alone time if I can go during certain times.

Dancing, or trying to dance. If I'm feeling goofy, I'll try to keep up with one of my younger siblings. My little brother is a huge Michael Jackson fan and my little sister loves to try to do dances from anime. Any time I can keep up with them is a victory in my book.
