“Nothing different. I usually walk most days, maybe a little less in the winter, but I pretty much do it year-round. Especially now that gas prices have gone up so much.”

  • Andre Thompson, day teacher, Lawrencewhat's a "day teacher?" do you teach the calendarily impaired?eat high fat, high protein diet, minimize simple carbs...oh that is year round! [yes I know "round" is a shape, it also describes a trip through the calendar!]walk daily for most of an hour, do that every day too, except when heavy snow/rain. push-ups and sit-ups every other day. that's year 'round' too. today I was nearly sunburnt, does that count for summer? sunny-sue, glad you clarified, you had me worried.

Lauren takes her cats to the park?? Those are amazing cats!anyways, I usually get in shape by working in the yard and the garden all summer long.

"I'm planning on some mountain biking, running and maybe some yoga."I usually prefer fruit with my yoga.

I do an hour in the morning on the treadmilland about an hour in the eveningwalking the dogs.I can't stay in shape if I'm not in shape to start with.

The same thing I do to stay in shape in the winter: nothing.Well, that may not be entirely true; I do ski in the winter. So I guess I do less in the summer.
