Yesterday was nice out (as in, it was 33*, not snowing, raining, and no wind fiercely blowing), so I took the opportunity and went for a walk. It was nice to be outside and get some fresh air.
If you look at a chart of obesity percentages by state, you can see where your state fits in.It is no surprise to me that Michigan is in the top 10. A good portion of the year the weather is just so yucky, so uninviting to go out in. There really is not much that will entice the Michigander outside during February, and I do think that weather and outside attractions do play a part in one's fitness.
This winter, I'm going to *try* to get outside more. I need the fresh air, if only for a few minutes. That being said, the weather today is not enticing. It is a rainy, slushy, icy mess out there!
Where does your state fall? Do you think you get outside often enough, especially during the winter?
