    Being in Michigan, I've been continually shoveling my driveway daily for the past 10 days. Last night, I shoveled 4" and now at least 4" more. My driveway is steep and skinny so I need to do it.
    Benefits are strong upperbody, cardio and legs. Plus outdoors.
    Do you shovel?

    I do actually enjoy the shoveling. Functional fitness!

    Looks like I'm going to have the Nemo workout soon.

    Nope, no snow. But, I can see how that would be a great workout.

    I live in Maryland and we don't get all that much snow. But when we do , I enjoy shoveling. I like to be out there while it is snowing. It is so peaceful and quiet and not many cars go by. It is a great w/o also. We got a snow thrower last year since I am getting up there in years but luckily we haven't needed it yet.

    YES!! I really struggle with winter. I live in southeast PA and complain about the cold. You are way tougher than me, Natasha! If I were any further north, I would probably go insane. :eek:

    No shoveling for this old lady! Nuh uh! Hurt my back. :mad:

    I strap on my HRM and absolutely count shoveling as a big ol' cardio and upper body workout.

    Hate winter, hate shovelling, hate snow. (Live in MI; have lived in PA where it was waaaaaaaaaaaaay worse. Husband wants to live in Colorado because he loves skiing. Lord help me). He likes snow, he like skiing, he shovels. Penance.

    Love spring, love May, love greenery all around me. I am simply enduring right now. Roll on April, pleeeeeease!

    Today I looked out my window to see a Ford F150 spin it's tires, struggling to make it uphill on the road across from my building complex. All those poor little cars did not stand a chance :(. And where I live, snow tires are a must or else you're pretty much screwed. Did the groundhog see his shadow? Spring can't come fast enough :mad:.

    Amen! I'm honestly looking forward to going outside and feeling hot, maybe even sweating a bit. That's how much I hate the cold and snow!
