Yesterday and Today - 30 - 45 mins of ditch digging with a manual hoe.

All I have to say is that exercise that involves an actual activity goes so much faster and I tend to really get into it - next thing your DH is saying your lips are blue and your face is red - but the water is draining off the pasture so it is all good. :carrot:

Plus any exercise that really targets your love handle region is excellent!

Walked for about 1 hour today just toodling around our neighbourhood and walking to the local rec centre to check out what classes they offer.

I was trying to focus on the fitness classes in the brochure instead of the chocolate making course they are offering :lol:

17 min 24 sec on the stationary bike this morning, the first 10 at a higher resistance than I've done. I didn't make it to my 20 minute goal today, cause I really need to get a gel seat cover for the bike (ouch, my tailbone!!).

50 steps on the stairmaster.
