Informal exercise

Wednesday, April 08, 2015

Since I haven't really had a chance for 'formal' exercise, I have been trying to make do with what I have....which is a LOT of yardwork!
As I said before, mom and stepdad have a lot of property here and while most of it is wooded, there is a giant amount that is not. I have the hang of running the mower and yesterday thought I would go out and use the weed eater for about 30 minutes....
I spent the rest of the evening with weak little baby bird arms, today they aren't so weak, but man oh man do my biceps feel it!

I think the weed eater is a bit heavy for me on top of swinging it back and forth and will be something that I have to work up to!
Oh yea, and we have had just enough rain in the last week that the grass needs mowing again, lol

    So understand the use and abuse of muscles in the spring. Of course you will build up muscles with all the work to do. We don't have to mow yet here in Iowa but it is coming. I have a lot of ground to rake and pick up metal and plastic twine, well cut it out, but it rained most of the week so I got time off.

    So proud of you to step up to the work and go for it.
    One of the reasons we work out is so we can do stuff like yard work. Sometimes we forget that fact!

    Sometimes I begrudge the time that it takes, but almost always I welcome the physical effort of mowing lawns, shoveling snow, etc.

    Hey, let's take physical activity however we can get it, right?

    Way to SPARK! :-)

    Yardwork definitely counts as long as you're not relying on riding lawn mowers. Sounds like the yard will be very nice looking.
