I don't know about you, but I love being outdoors! Spring, summer and fall, I hike 3-5 times a week, climb Blue Mountain, swim, jog, etc and walk! I am sooooo active and love it so much! Then...winter comes....
As soon as the snow flies, activity for me changes for the winter months. This year I bought skates and snow shoes to help keep moving outside and try to embrace the (dreaded) winter months....it doesn't help that since my 225lb weight loss, I am now ALWAYS cold in the winter. I even joined the local gym this year, but cancelled my membership already....argh!
What do you do when seasons change? What keeps you going through the winter?
I go to the gym almost daily on weekdays. It's how I start my day and just think about it like its part of my job. On weekends I might go to the gym or just try to get out with the dogs.
Summer weather I'm outside playing ball, swimming, walking the dogs, camping, hiking, but I also maintain my daily gym routine. I have been pretty faithful to the gym for two years now. Once it becomes your habit, you do miss it when you choose not to go.
I bought new skates this year and I'm having a blast! I also hike with my dogs. Cold or not. I only cut back if it's too cold for the dogs.

I'm sorry to say I cuddle up in front of the fireplace and patiently wait for spring, or vacation then spring. I do the treadmill (which is so boring) but that's it. 6 weeks until vacation yay, can't wait to walk the beach this year. My last vacation I had to be wheeled in a wheelchair through the airport.
