The PayBack for PushUps!!
Thursday, December 05, 2019
It snowed last night.
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!
