I need alternatives to the gym.

Turning cold here in a week I'm sure and I dread only having my gym as an option for my workouts. Any creative ideas?

Aerobic laundry.
-Run downstairs and load machine.
-Run upstairs and do 25 jumping jacks.
-Search house for next load.
-Run downstairs and realize machine is still going
-Run upstairs, 25 pushups, 3 kinds of crunches (sets of 20 to 40)
-Dance to some music
_Run downstairs and move laundry over
etc. etc.

i totally thought i was the only person who did that. I also lift the basket over my head while marching. The bucket of cleaning supplies is a good barbell too. :)

Well, it's tough to follow aerobic laundry, but I will take a stab at a suggestion:
maybe peruse your local TV schedule to find an exercise show you like. You can probably find a show that suits your schedule and then exercise in front of the TV with the TV folks. I've done it a few times and the music and host's motivational words are helpful.

I dance with my kids or play outside with them.
and then when I do housework I do extra scrubbing
plus parking a few extra spaces at the store and walking the extra steps helps
