Sunday was a mental health walk due to being sad about loss of my pet; today was a get back on track with strength training. Last week was walking in the evening and for strength training - cutting down trees and lifting rock.
Today not so much, yesterday was a great bike ride - looking forward to either another ride on Thursday or a visit to the zoo - which would mean lots of walking and pushing a wheel chair (which I count as my strength exercise).
Seattle58, I did add it to the tracker, but I always feel like it's not the same as me walking or biking. I know that others use the trackers SP or fitbit and all of these activities are counted. You are right, I certainly am not mowing or gardening/yard work every day (thank goodness) but I get what you are saying. Thanks for the encouraging words. Ques
You really should look that up on the fitness chart or on one of the blogs. It's shocking how much good it does. You wouldn't mow and do yardwork every day, would you? If you don't, then it would really count good! Just a thought.
Wish I could count all the yard work and mowing today, but my body just seems to think that is all the norm so maybe in a way it helps me maintain rather than gain and if tha'ts the case then I am happy with that!
I rode my bike and w,all day as really hungry for a Caesar salad. So when I got home after the ride I remembered I had a Sicilian lemon vinegar - mixed it with a little olive oil and a much less calorie dense version of a Caesar dressing (and really tasty).
I wanted to say earlier that I had spent hours gardening but in fact for me that is not aerobic so then it started raining which meant I wasn't going for a walk. Hmm then I saw Raesuns posting and I thought darn it - are you gonna do anything - so I went for an indoor bike ride!
