Fun Ways to Stay Fit in 2016
Tuesday, January 12, 2016
I try to keep my exercise as enjoyable as possible, but this year's off to a particularly good start! On New Year's Day, I did the polar plunge at Barton Springs! Refreshing...at least, as long as I stayed in the water. It was 68 in there, and 41 outside with a brisk wind. Once I got out, I needed warm fleece coverings, stat! That's me in the springs, in front with a big grin.
The next day, I walked on the Hike & Bike trail on Lady Bird Lake. That Sunday, Kevin and I walked a different part of that same trail and ended up on a nice strolling detour through the Nature & Science Museum in Zilker Park. We had fun looking at all the animals!
Yesterday I hit the Green Belt and enjoyed the berry-filled, branch-y greenery of the lower trail, and sat on a rock for about 20 minutes, enjoying the fresh-smelling, rushing water while listening to David Bowie's last album.
Today, I signed up a pal as one of my VIP guests at the gym, and she and I went to the gymnasium and shot hoops for over an hour! So fun. I definitely plan to keep up this momentum!
