I started a new workout plan a couple of weeks ago and it seems to be working.
I call it the "Foremother's Workout."
It involves cleaning, gardening, cooking, doing laundry, hanging wash on the line. Endless variety! And at the end of the day, not only have I burned calories, but I've also accomplished a lot. Today I weeded, tended flowers, gardened, pruned trees, and trimmed bushes. I feel tired, but in a really good way.
This doesn't mean I'm abandoning the Y, but I have so much to accomplish right now, that if I can work and exercise at the same time it is an excellent thing! And I am feeling muscles that I haven't felt for a long time!
