Do you stop working out because it is cold outside? Read on maybe I will change your mind.
I love this time of year and my outdoor workouts. I was a skier and it was fabulous! My husband and I skied. We went on great winter vacations. It was so wonderful to ski all day and then go out for a delicious dinner including a decadent piece of mud pie. Once we had kids life got a bit complicated and we stopped.
I do miss skiing on some level. I loved the freedom of going fast down a mountain. I don’t really want to do it anymore. I don’t miss all of the equipment and freezing on chair lifts.
I still love winter, snow and being outside. There are also great health benefits.

My outdoor workouts are great anytime of year but winter is my favorite. We are finished within the hour. So Perfect!
