Challenge Myself: Day #219 Exercise Outside

Today is Day #219 of the Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my daily Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today says to take an eco-themed trip to a rainforest or other exotic locale.

The book says,

Experience sheer exhilaration as you get a workout in an exotic locale. Sign up for a fun-filled eco-tour vacation. Teach your children about ecology and learn some new facts yourself while hiking in nature.

You'll burn roughly 544 calories an hour rock or mountain climbing or about 510 calories if you are just climbing hills with a 10- to 20- pound pack on your back. Head off for the Lapa Rios Ecolodge, a rainforest reserve and wildlife corridor near Costa Rica's Corvado National Park, where you can hike and see spectacular birds and other wildlife. Or travel back in time to discover ancient Ethopia and hike with eco-tour guides into the Simein Mountains.

If you prefer a locale closer to home, learn about the life of eagles and try a little kayacking on an eagle watching trip into the wilds of Maryland. The point is to burn calories doing fun activities in a natural setting.

I personally love getting out into nature.

Just For Today: I am thankful that Spring is here. The temps will be getting warmer and I can get outside.
