I am looking for some inspiration and help! I love my yoga class and also like running outside. However, come winter running outdoors is no longer an option. So I am curious what you all do for exercise? What is your number one workout method?

    This changes frequently, but I currently find that the DVDs are a great option for working out during nap time so I don't have to leave home! :) Love Beachbody 21 Day Fix and Jillian Michaels DVDs :)

      Thanks for naming these DVDs! I will have to look into these.

    Check out the free online workout videos from Popsugar Fitness. They are awesome, and there are so many of them that you don't have to get stuck in a rut doing the same video over and over again. They also vary in length and intensity/focus, so you can pick something based on how much time (or energy!) you have. popsugar.com

      Thanks for sharing! These will be great for the days I can't get outside or away from the kids.

    During the school year I belong to the YMCA and do exercise classes and run. During the summer I put the Y on hold because my kids are getting older and don’t want to go to the child care. So I purchased Beach Body On Demand to watch on our ROKU tv and have beer loving them! I may just stick with the at home workout when the school year starts up again.

    Yoga with Adriene on YouTube keeps me sane!

    I don't particularly "like" exercising so I try to do a little bit of everything to mix it up and not get bored or frustrated. It helps me to stay motivated when keeping up with a regular exercise routine.

    I always have loved walking outdoors and took up running a few years ago. I love the change of scenery that both give you.

      Yes! I ran in high school, and though I've never been a particularly strong runner, it is always my go-to form of exercise. I love being out and moving around, and it feels so much easier to just put on my running shoes and go than to do most anything else. Routine, I guess!

    I enjoy swimming. Outdoor pools in the summer are great, and the YMCA or park district pools have pretty flexible hours year round.
