“Nobody cares about me anymore since they built that public indoor pool.”
I have often chuckled at our mayor when he attributes diabetes with not having a public indoor pool. Let me clue him in, people who are not active, are not active, whether that is winter or summer.
I also get a kick out of the people who claim they need indoor swimming and tennis. If you don’t like the change of seasons in SD, I suggest you move somewhere warmer so you can enjoy these activities all year long.
So I have compiled a list, which I am sure my readers could add to, that are great ways to burn calories in the winter, and some are quite fun, and believe it or not FREE!
Downhill and cross-country Skiing and Snowboarding
Build a fort, igloo, wall or snowman
Creat a snow sculpture
Bird watching,Â Tracking Â animals, nature walks
Play hide and seek or tag
Winter scavenger hunt
