Do a Winter Workout That Whittles Your Waistline

1 2 3 4 5

The holidays have an interesting way of making us think we can bend the universe to our will. We begin to believe that the cookies for Santa and the slices of pie we eat will be more forgiving because of the holiday season. It must be those self-induced sugar comas.

If you find that ALL of your jeans have somehow mysteriously shrunk in the wash, it’s time to get active again. And with these fun winter workouts to do in two hours, you’ll have no excuse not to get your buns in gear!

The Northeast gets some pretty rough winters, so why not use all the snow to your advantage? My family always goes to my grandmother’s house to shovel for her. For two hours worth of this labor of love, I can burn about 680 calories. If you don’t have any property to shovel (lucky!), you can help your neighbors and possibly pick up some cash while working your waistline!

    Once the snow hits us, I will have a lot of cleaning up to do. I am so not looking for the snow to hit us. Wish I could go to one of the Islands during the winter/snow days.

    #5 – yes, I have a decent collection of exercise videos. I do like them. I also got a 2 year subscription to Shape magazine this new year so I think that will also help motivate me too.

    #4 – I hope I get to go up to the snow this year, probably around Lake Tahoe. It’s a 2 hr drive.

    #3 – Agreed, when it’s rainy outside it nice to walk around the mall and look at stuff. It’s good exercise and fun to look. I’m good, I just like to look and not buy too much.
