There are lots of things you can do to stay active during this short season:
Take a walk either in the morning or early evening when it's a bit cooler. Whether you take a stroll around the block or find a trail in your area, walking is fantastic exercise.
I have a membership at the Toronto Zoo. Now that, is a hell or a workout...! People sometimes complain that it's too spread out. Maybe, but I don't think of it that way. I go for a couple of reasons.
I1) I'm continuing to improve my photography skills so I take my camera with me.
2) I LOVE the animals... Especially the Elephants, Gorillas and my Big Cats <3<3
3) People watching. I like to see the kids and the families handing out. Once I was there when a little boy saw the Gorillas up close for the first time. He thought that it was the coolest thing in the whole world..!
4) I haven't had much of a chance to get so close to a Grizzly Bear. On my last visit, it was fairly quiet which I loved because I could get right up to the glass. This guy kept walking back and forth. He'd come over for a bit then he'd walk away. Then he finally just stayed and let me take pictures of him. Imagine the strength and power that these animals have..!
Water is also a great way to get fit. You don't have to know how to swim. Just getting in and walking around or doing a light jog is a good way to go. When you move, you create resistance in the water which will help you burn calories.
Using a walking Aid
If you use a walker or crutches or a wheelchair or what have you, don't let that stop you from getting outside. It may take you a bit longer to move or get around but what's the hurry??
I hope you get to have yourself a FUN and safe holiday this Summer. Make sure you take some time out and do something that you want to do!
