These days I don't have enough time in the day to get done all that needs doing, so I try adding movements to my activities to make them more whole body. There is tonnes of yard work, raking, digging, gardening, tree trimming, spraying weeds, fertilizing ... you get the idea. I've been enjoying the change.
Prior to this I was walking, doing videos, mini-tramp, stepper but now it is renewing doing different stuff every day Outside.
Since starting SparkPeople my perspective on outdoor work has changed. Now its a opportunity for exercise!
This might sound crazy, but a great WHOLE BODY workout for me is forking out stalls focusing on lifting with my legs. I can always feel (and see!)the difference in my abs, legs, shoulders and arms when I do this regularly. If my stalls are all clean I will even fork out corrals by hand!
Everything you want is right there, just outside your comfort zone

Well I am following my strength excersize according to SparkPeople but any other ideas for cardio? I have a treadmill but really, not into it. I have been doing the mowing thing about twice a week and ride my bike for about two-three miles. I jsut want a different variety so I don't get burned out. I am jelous of all the garden talk....it's been a little wet here (which I am not complaining about) so we haven't even tilled the garden. I love to garden! But over the weekend I did plant my pots that I have around the house. I just hope my fiances new cattle pup stays away from them!! So far so good though. Let me know if you all have some ideas. Thanks!!!
