spring yard work=win
Every day for the past week I've been working on my yard. Last night I did almost two hours of raking for 600 calories burned (and I POWER RAKE.) Today already I've done 50 minutes for 300 calories burned. I'm not getting in my walks for the past couple of days but I sure am working hard!!! And as a bonus... my yard is starting to look freaking fantastic!!!
Tonight? Sweeping the driveway and finishing the backyard.
Tomorrow all the kids big toys come out and we reap the benefits of all of my hard work!
So this is my little challenge to my 3fchicks and roosters. Today. Go do something that has to get done. Rake. Sweep your driveway. Prune some bushes. Bring out spring toys. If you have nothing outside? Sweep and wash your floors. Wash some windows. GET STUFF DONE and burn calories in the meantime!
So often we think that exercise HAS to be intentional... and that yard/house work gets to slack off while "we are getting healthy." You can have both!!!
On my own personal journey I started on September 27, 2008

Still plugging along on this weight loss highway!
