Dandelions...digging builds strength...

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

So, I woke up this afternoon to a sky FULL of SUN & a yard FULL of DANDELIONS... After having my Tues. WI...132.4 (.4 lb. drop) I am enjoying my coffee contemplating which I will accomplish this strength building resistance workout or a yard digging cleanse. In case you haven't guessed I DESPISE those ugly yellow heads...not only now as they appear MINUTE by MINUTE it seems but also later in the summer when the heads are gone & we are left with a lawn full of ragged leaves. Yes, I understand that since SPRAYING is no longer a LEGAL option & my neighbours seem to be uninterested & uninvolved in my dandelion protest club I am on my own surrounded by a field of YELLOWNESS....I will say my handy dandy little digging tool makes lighter work than in previous years & each plunge into the soil is an airation (spelling) device on its own. That's the GOOD part of it...a natural DE THATCHER!!!

The fact that I'm indecisive about which activity to choose shows you & me that I feel less motivated to complete my weight resistance exercises than normal...I find it more challenging to finish the workout. I adapted it from a partial sparks DVD & some of my physio exercises. I know it is working since I feel sore upper body parts as my muscles adapt. (the soreness eases after a day) I think at the end of this month, I will change up my weight routine...

For now I've made my decision for today...I will do BOTH activities...a lttle music should pick up my MOOD pace & a little DIGGING should get the juices flowin!!!

Let the digging BEGIN!!! emoticon

    Hahahaha I am happy to run over them with the lawn mower
dandelions were never bothersome to me.

You do what you have to do-- LOL! get that exercise in.

I see you are still losing. Maybe your body is turning into more muscle
and letting loose of a little more body fat.
