No Gym This Summer….Only Beach

May 16, 2013

Lake Forest Beach Stairs

After looking at this view yesterday as I ran the stairs at Lake Forest beach something clicked. Why keep my gym membership all summer when I can get everything done that my body needs right here about a mile from my home? Between a jumprope, the incredibly exhausting stairs, and various calisthenics I exercised my entire body in under thirty minutes. Also, that’s just about the right amount of direct sunshine to get on your body to activate your vitamin D. I know it’s Chicago, and days like the last three may not come around for very long, but I’m going to take advantage of it as long as I can. That is if my allergies allow for it! It’s hard to believe there was a time when I complained about living here.
