So spring is finally here, and it’s that time again. We have alot we are planning for in the next month or so. Planning on redoing our flooring in our house and getting laminate flooring! I have dreamed of this day, let me tell you! So hard to have carpet when you have children and it will be nice to be done with it!
today we have been spring cleaning. I cleaned out the carport, with some help from the kids, and cleaned in the yard. And this morning I mowed some of the lawn for 1 hr. It has been an exausting day. I am slowly working on the bouse but so exausted from mowing, it completely wiped me out. Kids did some homeschooling outdoors today,on the blanket. It was a fun way to do homeschooling on such a beautiful day as this. Hoped to get some more mowing done later, but was too exaustedl. It was physically exausting.
According to sparkpeople I burned 444 calories just in the hour of mowing lawn! woot woot! about 3,745 footsteps just on the lawn mowing. or more… calculated 3,145 and started calculating after mowing for a while)
Accomplishments this past week excercise wise:
monday- sore- skipped- tried jogging in place for a second.. no way I’d succeed could still hardly move. tried walking in place a few minutes but that’s all I did.
tuesday- sore- skipped
wednesday- sore skipped
friday- wii fit plus jogging- basic free run- 20 minutes- 2+ miles woot!
Monday- (today) mowed lawn 60 minutes- burned 444 calories WOOT!, cleaned carport, cleaned house, cleaned yard prob burned another 200 calories + on my feet literally all day except the bit I was sitting homeschooling, and sitting playing with 3 yr old from 5:30- 6 and talking to neigbor so today was a very active, and physically exausting day! burned some serious calories today! atleast for me! yay! As for the scale.. well this morning it didn’t look good but I was fully dressed and not wearing what I normally do when weighing, had had food, drinks by the time I weighed, so I am not going to be too discouraged. however I had a bad weekend and splurged on pizza, and hamburgers,fries, and all things unhealthy so I am sure that has alot to do with it too. I have not been very good about avoiding those all together yet.. it’s my weakness. but today felt good. didn’t eat those, and was extremely active so hopefully today made up for my horrible weekend. I plan on being much more active this week also but not sure I will be doing eactive. As sore as it makes me, I am tempted to take a week off from it. So we shall see. I think it has kept me from being as active as I’d like during the week due to the soreness. obviously it is going to take a long time for me to complete the eactive 9 week challenge. sigh
so this weeks plans are as follows:
Monday- today- mowed lawn, cleaned house, cleaned yard,carport, tonight- wii fit plus- basic free run, strength training
tuesday- mow lawn, clean house, clean yard more, wii fit plus
