I like to get out and work in the gardens. When not doing that, walking through the woods is the best!

I like going going for a run then relaxing in the park and reading a great book in warm weather

I'm totally enjoying working in my yard- lots of weeds to pull. I also enjoy taking walls with my dog on the wooded trails. ops galore! We also walk through the local university arboretum, which is beautiful.

hopefully when I get adjusted to the medication (nausea all the time) and get some energy back I can work in my gardens. I miss that very much.

I enjoy the cooler weather to ride my bike to the park, and exercise on the equipment there, it's so rewarding.

I enjoy many things such as, walking, playing with my grandsons, reading, photography, softball, playing on the beach, and yard work. Anything to be outdoors.

I am walking my dog at least once a day for almost 2 miles. I want to get back on my bike for cardio as it gets warmer.

I enjoy communing on my back deck, Watching the mountains, Watching the antics of my 18 month old Grandson when he comes to visit. Also taking the Kabota for a ride on the back 40.

I get lost in my garden soaking up the sun, digging in the dirt. I am spiritually and emotionally grounded every time I spend time in my small garden of Eden.

I love working in the yard and garden when the Temp's get warm. I also like talking my Boston terrier on walks in the park.

I am not a big warm weather fan despite the fact that I live on the Gulf Coast. I DO enjoy heading to the beach when it is warm.

I love being outside in the spring because you can smell the flowers and trees beginning to bloom. Everything has a clean and fresh feeling after a rain storm.

I like kayaking! Nice calm, flat water kayaking. It's especially nice with fireworks over the lake afterwards. :-)

I'm actually having a hard time enjoying any physical activities. I'm trying to find something new that I will like so I will want to exercise for the enjoyment of it and not because I have to in order to lose weight or help with my depression. But if I had to chose something it would probably swimming or walking.

I love water aerobics but the class I used to go to has been canceled. I also love walking my puppies very early in the morning for 3 miles, they love it to. My stationary bike is my go to when weather is bad. I would love to have an exercise video to change things up.

I love walking on the beavh…I walk just in the edge to have some resistance for better exercise or riding my bike on the beach

My warm weather activity is quite simple. I live in Las Vegas so spring is awesome here, but as summer arives, it gets very hot here, so here I go.
I not only have Diabetes, but I also have Prostate Cancer, I'm a Gleason 8.

My Bulldog and I take a short drive to Mt. Charleston. 40 minutes away. There are some great trails there. I choose one and enjoy walking up and taking in the fresh mountain air. Usually about an hour hike. We then walk back and get a snack. Then a couple miles away is a hot spring. I take a quick soaking. OMG. Take a lot of water. We then find a nice place just to relax for a while. Usually enjoying a view of the Las Vegas valley. Then a brisk hike back to the van. Then drive home for a nice nap.

My favorite warm weather activity is swimming. I can exercise or play with my family in the cool water, either way I'm doing something I enjoy.

I love to swim, walk and do aerobics in the water, I am
M handicapable with arthritis, both RA N OSTEO,and fibromyalgia. The water helps with the pain so I can do all of this almost pain free.
