Get Fit and Have Fun Outdoors!

May 10, 2013

Enjoy the sunshine – and all of the positive benefits that come along with it – by heading outdoors. Not only will you have fun but you can get fit too!

Spring and summer is the perfect time to add outdoor exercise into your regular routine. Since you want to be outside anyway, it is easy to go the extra step and doing something active. Instead of tanning by the pool or reading a book, choose one of these fun activities!

Play Tennis

Grab a couple of rackets and a friend and try hitting the ball around the local court. Most public parks have free tennis courts that anyone can use.

Go Swimming

Don’t just lay by the pool – dive in! Swimming is a fun activity to do by yourself or with friends and family. Just remember to apply waterproof sunscreen before and after.

Ride a Bike

Search the internet for local bike paths and then plan a trip. If you don’t have a bike you can rent one from a local bike shop.

Paddle a Kayak

Going kayaking or canoeing is a great way to enjoy a day on the water if you live near a lake or river.

Hit the Links

Although it might seem like an old person sport, golfing is an awesome way to enjoy the sun. Many golf courses offer deals to students at special times of the day. Call around to get the best deal.

How Often Does Your Family Exercise?

  • All the time - we're a totally fit family.
  • We exercise at least once a week - but we could do more.
  • Not every often - maybe once a month.
  • Never. We're a family of couch potatoes.

I'm wearing a plain gray t-shirt with pink-magenta shorts and my hair is tied back in the littlest messiest ponytail you've ever seen! I didn't even tie it with a hair tie, I tied it with my cloth headband! I'm recovering from a cough so that's why I'm so messy XD

I'm an only child so it really depends on things, they're not strict when it comes to most things. I can wear what I want unless you know, it's like, completely outta question. I can cuss and all, like say one or two "okay-cuss words" around them, just as long as it's not AT them. They're fine with spending money lol, as much as it takes. I don't really ask for stuff, but I get stuff for no reason sometimes. It can be a problem,  cuz I consider it throwing money down the drain. but I'm somewhat grateful. but my parents are also overprotective LOL so I can't go out too far on my own and stuff. "Watch out for weird boys, honey." All that craap, but I guess I can deal with it.
