Seraffa: I'll trade winter with you! We are just getting started in the Midwest this year. The Farmer's Almanac is predicting a cold, wet & long winter.
It was so bad the past month that I couldn't get to Curves as often as normal, so I found some Zumba videos on the internet as well as Jillian Michaels. I missed the walking, but at least these were even better than Curves as far as energy expended.
If I liked the cold, I know I would get a great workout just going out walking for a shorter time than in the summer. Trudging thru the snow seems to really work your muscles. But alas, I am a wimp about this weather & hate the dreary skies that often accompany it!
