Old Fashioned Work out


I strapped on my polar heart rate monitor and mowed the lawn today..I burned 439 calories!
And yes, I did turn off the self propel feature, so I was really pushing!

Saved a trip to the gym, too. :)

Ha ha-
that is not me nor my lawn.. but a standard Google file picture... :)

I wish it was.. look at those hills in the back yard, reminds me of California! I will see if I can take a picture of our lawn tomorrow. I mowed,t he boys did trim and sweep.

I was going to let them mow, but when I found out the calorie burn I traded jobs! lol
