Get outside!

"It's not having what you want, it's wanting what you've got" Sheryl Crow, Soak Up The Sun

So you can't make it to the gym. Big deal. That's no excuse no to get some exercise on a gorgeous day.
Got kids?
Chase them around the grass in a game of freeze tag. Not only will you spend quality time with your kids but you'll get a great workout as well (can you say interval training?!).
Got a dog?
If your dog is like mine, they are nuts about chasing things. Harley likes to chase balls. Get a game of soccer going with your dog. Use forward, side and back kicks to work your legs.
Got a bike?
Take the family on a bike ride or head out yourself for some time to reflect. And sweat.
Got running shoes?
Hit the pavement. You don't need a treamill to run. Breathe in the fresh air.
Got a garden?
You'd be surprised at how many calories gardening burns.
Got a lawn?
Mow it. Try to stretch it for an hour.

These are all great ideas. I had to giggle a little though at the thought of mowing my 10ft by 10 ft square patch of lawn for an hour. My neighbors would think I had lost my noodle. LOL. It takes 10 and a half seconds to mow on a hard day.
