yardwork exercise

Sunday, June 03, 2012

I mowed the lawn for the first time in years yesterday. I usually pay a yard man to do it but a friend loaned me her lawnmower and I decided to give it a try. It was really simple to use and at first I wondered, why have I been paying someone else to do this? Then as I got through about a third of the yard, my lower back reminded me why. Still, it was good exercise, and it's great to save any money I can save towards a nice vacation. However, I won't be giving up my yoga and pilates anytime soon because it's easier on my back.

    I love mowing the lawn, but have to take it slow and easy nowadays, same problem as you. But I do love the smell of fresh cut grass and all that invigorating fresh air!!! Cheryl emoticon

    Yoga and Yardwork compliment each other beautifully!! You can always do the yard work in sections, giving your back a break. Enjoy the real life workout!
