For years, I have given the unsolicited advice to folks that they should give up their gym membership, save the money, clean their own homes. do the do-able routine maintenance chores on their homes and DO THEIR OWN YARD WORK!
When people come over to visit, and I am asked "who is your maid and lawn maintenance company" I raise my hand and say ME. I'm saving a ton-o-money. getting sun & fresh air and lots of exercise.
Even middle aged, disabled women can do it! Although when I was working and my children were still home, I must say that time was an issue.
Today I had listed 15 minutes of gardening exercise on my Fitness Tracker and I changed it to 90 minutes (actually time spent.) The increase in time was "vine eradication." One piece was about 8' long. Oh my! I even got out my ax.
Gardening and yard work are not progressive. They are in the same chore category for me with dirty dishes and dirty clothes. All of them go on and on and on...
