Wow, did the Northeast have a heck of a Winter or what?!?! It does feel like this past Winter season was a little colder, a little longer and a little less tolerable. Ahhhhh, but there is relief as we speak. It is 80 degrees and not a cloud in the sky here at Excel Fitness in West Hartford, CT, so I decided to take break (recess) and shot some hoops for 30 minutes. My basketball shooting burned 188 calories, but it did so much more for my mind to be outside and relax for a few minutes. See how many calories you burn doing your favorite outdoor activity here Calorie Counter.
The point is go outside for some type of activity. Staying fit and getting mentally refreshed can be easier than you think. My next activity is hiking up to Heublein Tower in Avon, CT (120 minutes is 900 calories burned).
