I’ve been feeling kinda bad about being too busy to get to the gym lately…
But then I worked on our yard and realized it’s probably a better workout than me slugging away on the elliptical is. For one my giant pruning shears are HEAVY.
Some of what I did today:
That’s weeds. GIANT weeds. I had to use the big shovel-some of them were the size of a head of lettuce
(And let me take a moment to say that I love how the city of Portland gives you a container just for your yard waste. It’s awesome)
Plus I did this
Strawberries planted! They’ve been living in planters for years, I’m happy they’re in dirt now.
And a whole lot more trimming, shoveling, and general work.
Before I started I made myself lunch
Broccoli, brown rice, and pinto beans with onion and garlic. The beans were insanely good. Which was weird as they’re, you know, beans.
Mid work I realized I needed some sustenance.
When your arms are a little shaky cause you’ve been working, I think you earn some chocolate
Brownie with yogurt frosting (yogurt + powdered sugar)
It made me a happy lady.
If you’ve got a yard, how do you feel about yardwork? I’ve never had one of my own and I’m wondering if I’m going to start hating doing stuff in it soon…Or bribing the fiance to do it for me.
I’m terrified of lawn mowers. So that’s already his job.
