How do you get in shape for Summer?
Some people join a gym, let spring cleaning give them a workout, start the gardening and home improvement projects, or use nature for biking, walking and running. It is interesting to get ideas from others, whether they get into a specific program or let the natural flow of life do the job.
I think its a good idea to start by cutting back on sugar, doing a minimum of 1/2 hour of walking per day, and gradually increasing intensity, and duration of the walks.
I've been going to the gym almost every day at 5 am, and I'm going to start using my juicer more- maybe doing a 10 or 15 day fast, just juice. I'm also going to try moving around more in general, I work out hard but I'm at my computer or at work for most of the day.
Start slowly. If you begin too vigorously you get too sore, then discouraged. Discouragement causes you to punt the whole idea.
Get a friend and start walking or swimming. Accountability is really helpful.
Remember the first day you exercise you will do well on the reserves you have. It will be the second day and the third that discourage you if you start too fast.
Great answers! I'm waiting for the pool to be ready and doing Spring cleaning while I wait.
It's about all I can do these days, but I get up to a good workout in the water.
Everybody has suggested something that I plan to do, especially walking every day. Cutting the sugar will be the toughest of all. I work on the computer most of the day too.

It's the 1st of February and here in Ireland, today marks the first day of Spring. It's a bright crisp day and the perfect day to begin the Spring cleaning but...where do I start? It seems like clutter grows out of the walls and dust springs up over night!!! Do you have a method...

What Spring cleaning tasks are most important?I tend to clean all the curtains and bedding and test the smoke detectors. I also start to prepare the garden area for when it warms enough to plant. Are there other household tasks that should be done every Spring that are important?
