Today’s Resolution: Stretch Your Legs and Go Hiking

Hiking sounds a lot harder than it is, or needs to be. If you’re on a trail in the woods, you’re hiking. It doesn’t need to be a long trail or a particularly steep trail, but you’re still technically hiking. Personally, I like a trail that has everything: ups, downs, rivers, bridges, rocks and little landmarks you didn’t even know existed. It’s all about getting back to nature. There’s something a little unnatural about walking on a treadmill, isn’t there? You walk in place, and stare at your calorie count go up and up. Even if it’s cold where you are, try out a hike today (or pick a place in the future). Just so you know, you burn more calories in the cold than you do when it’s warm out!
