I can barely move

Saturday, August 07, 2010

Well, it's me 1, shrubs 0. I went out for yard work today. It was crazy hot (as Texas usually is in the summer) but I was committed. I took out three full shrubs and reduced another 3 to teeny tiny stumps. I have two huge piles of brush to move but that will have to be tomorrow. Due to my backyard demo I had no trouble with my water today... 8 glasses by 4 pm and the night is still young. There is something about yard work- you get to see the fruit of your labor right away. I feel accomplished and pretty darn excited because I knocked out a full workout withoutleaving the backyard... now if I can only get out of bed tomorrow morning.

    Good for you! I feel the same way - I like the immediate gratification of yardwork. Good thing, since I'm the only one in our family of 5 who enjoys it. I'm impressed that you can get out in the heat and work. I can barely tolerate it if the temps are over 70. Ha ha. Hope you're not too sore this morning!

    Sometimes I get so busy doing things that I don't do everyday and the time just disappears. BUT I feel it when I get up the next day. There have been many of times I did not want to get up but I just pray "Lord get me up! Push me if you have too" and it works! Diane
