I was going to spend 3 days at the ranch clearing brush, but I ended up coming back after only a day of work because of a serious sinus infection (bad enough that I was coughing up blood!). Although this trip wasn't as enjoyable as most, I certainly feel good about the work that gets done. This trip was to extend a trail, both for the wildlife and for us to be able to explore more of our 100 acres. Attached are a few "before and after" pictures of the work I did on Wednesday.
I wish I could say that I lost weight after all of the work, but I tend to overeat when I work that hard...
Oh thank you so much for the pictures for this visual one... awesome work...100 acres is quite a bit of area to make paths through!!! So are they just for walking or do you have a four wheeler or jeep for "touring"? So sorry about the sinus infection and short trip...but thankful for the progress...Now take good care and get better, check on anti-inflammatory foods and methods and GET BETTER!!! God bless. ~Linda in WA 1765 days ago
If you are working hard you need some extra calories (unless you're going crazy with the wrong kind of foods). Plus those multiple muscles you used are going to keep burning fat long after the work is over, so it's a win-win either way. And wow! What a lot of work you got done, and beautiful property. :)
Don't forget to do some stretching before you sleep or you'll be sore as all get out in the morning. And I agree you should go to a doctor about that sinus infection: They can be deadly.
Love the photos! Working the land certainly provides great fitness minutes! Seems when you live in warm weather, everything grows a little more than I'm ready to trim. The sinus infection sounds serious enough to see a doctor. Sure hope it clears well. Fortunately, my two or three (home) lots can be worked in smaller fitness segments easily so I can spread it out over the week with some of my gentler (non sweaty) workouts. May good health be yours and your loved ones! Hug, hug -- Evelyn 1765 days ago
