I do feel stronger

Monday, April 12, 2010

Yesterday I changed up my workout with a couple of different dance shows on the fitness on demand channel. When I finished I felt pretty pumped and decided to go out in the yard and rake leaves and weed some of my gardens. I have these banks that I keep working my way down by tearing out the weeds and planting stuff along them. It was the perfect day to get out there and make some progress. I would work for a while and then take a water break, go back to the yard and so on. At one point I was resting and I actually thought to myself, "I Feel Stronger". It was a very good feeling. Now today my back and knee are not telling me the same thing, but for that period of time I was sure I have been making forward steps in getting healthier!

    Thanks for the comment on my status. I noticed it happens when I use my laptop only.

    I need to work in my yard. Pulling up weeds and the like. Tomorrow the sun will be out, hopefully will get out and work in the yard.

    Your blog reminded me that the backyard needs to be raked and the flower bed needs shaping up. More exercise. Something besides dancing! emoticon
