Never too cold to get colder

The guys at Loyola say winter is a great time to exercise.

Even if you're layered under sweatshirts, you can get benefits.

The problem is getting motivated--it's warm and comfy--why go outside and force stiff legs into action and flood your body with frigid air?

I guess cuz it's good for us.

Wear a hat, scarf and gloves. You don't want frostbite. Boy THAT sounds inviting.

Wear proper shoes and socks. Waterproof and maybe two pairs of socks.

Wear layers--you can shed as you get warmer.

Avoid cotton near your skin--it gets wet.

Stay hydrated.

As for motivation--keep a pair of summer shorts around and see if they still fit.

Purchase a gym membership.

Make veggies in the crock pot.

And, no, hydrating does NOT mean a flask.
