Mowing and yardwork

Thursday, May 03, 2012

Does mowing count as exercise? I have a gas mower, but after spending an hour mowing the yard, picking up old leaves and pulling weeds, I am soaked in sweat! I had to go get a water bottle in the middle of it. This is the first time I have had a house by myself where I did the yardwork. When I was married, my husband did all the yardwork. He took pleasure in it! I always took care of the house. After we seperated, the kids and I lived in an apartment building for a few years, and no yardwork there. I still have a lot of work to do in the flower beds, but I am saving that for this weekend. I am exhausted!

    I hearyou...yardwork can be tough particularly if it is hot/warm and humid. I did gardening yesterday and when I looked it up in the fitness section it counted as exercise. If nothing else iit should count as walking. Hang in there, you will feel proud of how everything looks when you are finished emoticon
