An Active Lifestyle Allows Me to Enjoy Maine Winters

Once upon a time I lived like a bear. When cold weather settled in, so did I.

The only time I went outside was to go from my home to the car to work/store to the car to home.

And I just LOVED the days that it snowed and I’d have to go outside and shovel.

Brrrrr… winter was so not my favorite time of the year!

But, now that I’ve become one of those “active lifestyle” people, I get to enjoy spending time outside in Maine, no matter what the season.



Yesterday, after I finished my coaching calls, I headed off to
Harris Farm
in Dayton, Maine for a bit of time on the cross-country trails.

I watched squirrels scamper around in the snow, listened to birds sing, and followed deer tracks until they bounded off the groomed trail.

And while the couch, a good book, and my favorite television shows will ALWAYS have a place in my life, enjoying the gifts of nature are even more wonderful!

If you’d like to adopt a healthier, more active lifestyle, I would love to help you get started.

Ep054 – 3 Steps to Living a More Active Lifestyle

Do you talk about becoming more physically active? Do you do anything about it?

Lack of time, too much to do, tried and failed, or feeling too old are just some of the excuses people make for not being physically active. You CAN be more physically active in just 5 minutes a day. Your health, happiness, and future depend on it.

As we celebrate the New Year, don’t just make a flimsy, half-hearted resolution to become more active or to improve your health. This year, do something about it.

These 3 steps will get you started.

Ep052: Find What Works for You

With the changing of the seasons, I knew I was going to have to eventually change from my outdoor running program to indoor workout DVDs.

Most years, I resist the inevitable and allow myself to delay plans, as I keep hoping for that sunny, mild day, when I can go for a 2 or 3 miles walk around the neighborhood. After two or three weeks, though, I finally accept the reality, that my running season is over.

This year, I didn’t allow myself that “grace” period. After one nuisance snowstorm that left the roads and sidewalks icy, and a weather forecast of low temps and high winds, I knew it was time to make the switch.

In this episode, I talk about a fitness instructor that inspires and motivates me to exercise. I also talk about why her style is not suitable for everyone AND encourage YOU to learn what works for you, and then let it work for you!

Enjoy!



Show Notes:

I talked about Leslie Sansone’s Walk at Home collection of fitness DVDs. Learn more at: http://walkathome.com/

I found a free 1-mile walk on YouTube here: 1 Mile Happy Walk
