I walk indoors at large stores or malls where it is flat and air conditioned.  Any excuse gets me off my routine, so I try to make sure that I don't have any excuses.  I also walk with my husband so we both benefit from the walk and from talking about recent things we read.  It's a good way to be closer and to stay in shape.  When I can get my daughter in law to join me, I go swimming.  I grew up near the beach and swim like a fish, but here I have to go to the local indoor pool.  Still need to get into that routine too, but I am recently retired, 8 months, and am still adjusting to not having a schedule.  It's nice, but I think that people are right that you need to schedule your exercise just to make sure that you do it.

Walking my two dogs!  They both love the outings, as we walk various routes, and I enjoy the great out doors. We walk for a minimum 1 hour most days of the week. It’s a win, win for us all!

I do the simplest and easiest exercise that can be done - walk, a lot.  On beautiful days, I go out for at least 30 minutes and enjoy the fresh air, and the views!  When the weather is unforgiving, I walk inside (I live in an Independent community with very long halls).  To go from one end to the other is 1/3 of a mile and I just go back and forth.  Since I also volunteer there, I get to walk some more!  I try not to sit too long either, but I have to get up a lot anyway, to prepare our meals, vacuum (good for burning calories!) and other household tasks.  I find most exercising boring and since my knees are no longer forgiving, some of the yoga and other exercises are more painful than helpful.

I have a 55-60 minute routine at the YMCa that include 20 minutes of arobic and the remainder core strenghtening. I like the recumbent incline machine.

Treadmill and Cybex Arc trainer as a changeup.  Resistance training 2X/wk to keep toned and fend off loss of muscle mass.

Yoga and Zumba.  Both are a lot of fun.

Yoga! It keeps me flexible and muscular while being meditational at the same time. Fifteen years at this point.
