Other exercise options

I was getting tired of the same old walk so my husband and I have taken up hiking, it is so rewarding because we have been hiking in to view waterfalls. So the hike through the wooded area is relaxing but the waterfall at the end of the trail is a breath taking view. Because we had got so much rain my hike yesterday went to a hard hike. We had to climb over trees that fell and walk around the muddy areas.

Just wanted to let people know that there is more to exercise than exercise machines indoors. I hate being inside and love nature.

I can't believe that I can hike 2 miles now. I'm so proud of myself. I did not even sit at all during the hike yesterday.

I agree with you about exercise. Wish I had something breath taking at the end of my exercise. I do however do better when I can take a walk or ride my bike!!
