I am a get-outside-and-enjoy-the-day kind of woman. I would rather be outside walking through the woods, fields, and along the waters edge rather than just about  anywhere ... Except underwater. Underwater is my favorite place to be!   
I have seen commercials recently that suggest everyone should get out and find whatever exercise is right for him or her - just get out and exercise! It has been  my experience that getting exercise makes me feel better. I have more energy     throughout the day. From what I have read, if you exercise first thing after you    wake up, you will boost your metabolism and have more energy throughout the   day  ... who could resist that?!?  
I have found out I really like to walk. I can throw on my sneakers, grab a camera and go for a walk. It's a great way to explore the community and nature, plus it     gives me more opportunities to take photographs and learn more about the flora,   fauna and creatures that share the local environment. Walking also gives me       time to think, to plan, to clear my mind.   
I love to scuba dive. Scuba diving has been my profession since 1996. I love it   more now than I did when I first started and I cannot ever imagine a time in my life when I would not want to scuba dive. Scuba diving is great exercise.  Staying is decent shape to scuba dive is important, so cross training during down time is a   good idea. Walking and swimming help tone muscles, so I swim a lot weather      permitting. Yoga and Pilates help with balance, core strength, and overall good    health. I am planning on adding more yoga and Pilates to my routine, as well.       Stretching, deep breathing, drinking lots of water and getting plenty of sleep are a part of my daily routine, no matter where I am or what the conditions are like. 

Happy hunting, gathering, eating and swimming!
