Springtime Workouts Kill Two Birds With One Stone!

Sunday, April 13, 2008

I love the springtime for more than one reason. I love the warming weather, the emerging flowers, the new life all around me. Most of all, I love it that my husband and I can get back out in the garden and loose all that winter pudge along with getting our yard it tip top shape.

You want an incredible total body workout? Try getting out a hoe or rake. Talk about work your abd, arms, behind, etc.

Not only are you making your surroundings more beautiful with the care and addition of flowers, veggies, and shrubbery, but you are making your body more beautiful also!

Yesterday I planted tomatos, spinach and kale. Got the beds ready for squash, cucumbers, pole beans. etc.

We also redid some flower beds and planted some sunflowers, begonias and pink pampus grass.

The soreness I am feeling this morning is worth it!

    OMG! I am jealous, you must live in a warm climate to be planting already.....lucky. :-) We are just now seeing daffodils and the first buds on the trees. Won't be able to plant until mid May, sigh. It is an amazing workout to do yard clean up. Sounds like fun!

    I agree. It's so great that you can exercise and not really know you are exercising! Getting things done is a great way to kill two birds, I agree!! I wish it would warm up here in NY. Yesterday was nice but now it's back down in the 40's again!! Your garden sounds wonderful. I love veggies I've grown myself! I can't wait!!!

    That's great! I think the best exercise actually gets stuff done, so you don't feel like you're just plugging away on the treadmill for venity's sake. Your garden sounds amazing!
