The PayBack for PushUps!!

It snowed last night.

A lot!!

Heavy wet snow.

The plough had been by. Walling in the end of my driveway. With the really heavy hard-as-cement stuff.

And my driveway is a looooooong driveway .

For various reasons, DH was not available today to take care of all that with the snow blower while I sipped coffee and read the newspaper and patted dear Henry . . .

And of course girly-girl me does not know how to operate the snow blower.

(I know!! Eye-roll at myself . . . . )

So: I was out there for about an hour. With the shovel.

I was wearing my penguin flannelette pjs under my down coat. And my sheepskin boots.

And I did a really creditable job if I do say so myself.

Snow shovelling is full body exercise -- arms and back and core and legs.

And no: I don't think I'll need my exercise routine (4 sets of 10 push ups, sit ups, mountaineers and squats) this morning after THAT workout.

But I'm really glad that I was up to the task!! And I'm pretty sure that my regular exercise routine made it possible!
