How was everyone’s weekend?
Ours was a whirlwind complete with 4 trips to home depot, a started first floor bathroom, many dug up plants, weeds gone, a ready to go garden and much more. We got so much done this weekend, I can’t actually believe it. It makes me feel the end in sight for some home projects that we started months ago…like the kitchen.
This was really my first time gardening. My mom got the fire lit under my bottom…mostly because she can’t stand the non-landscaping that was our front yard. We dug up plants and we’re seeding for more grass. Now we just need to spend the money to get some “curb appeal” going on.
Yard work and gardening is a serious workout. I didn’t overly exert myself, but I did help. My mom and Danny did the real heavy lifting but I did lots of raking…and watering
I wish I took before and after pictures, but of course…I didn’t. Here is one of the many projects:
With all the non-traditional exercise going on over here, I thought it would be fun to look up even more. Part of being healthy is MOVING but it doesn’t always mean going for a run or going to the gym to lift weights. I lifted a heavy watering can about 15 times this weekend. Better than weights if you ask me!
Non-traditional workouts to keep you fit, healthy and get you MOVING!
- Yardwork: raking leaves, picking weeds, planting, gardening, moving the lawn, digging
- House cleaning & organizing
- Walking the dog
- Playing with kids outside
- Nature walks
- Rock climbing
- Rope jumping
- Biking around town
It’s fun to move with a purpose instead of just heading to the gym…and plus with some of these things you’ll get work done around your house!
I feel SO accomplished and it’s just the beginning…things really will be done before baby…and that feels VERY good!
