Today I traded in the regular hoe in favor of a heavier one. The heavy one has an ax blade on one side of the head, and a narrow hoe with a sharp blade on it on the other side. I remembered a Sparkpeople article that gave some ideas to burn extra calories while doing housework, and it seemed to me that this heavier hoe might be some of the same idea.
I also discovered that it did a great job of chopping down some of the bigger weeds. I found that it still handled well around the plants, so that is a good thing. I felt it in my arms and back, but not to the point where I feel it too much.
Meals and exercise both tracked today, whew!
