I have always said that I get plenty of exercise just going about my normal chores.
You see, I live in a family of exercise enthusiasts.
I, on the other hand, prefer to get my exercise doing functional activities...
like farm chores.
Exercising for the sake of exercising is boring to me.
I would much rather have an accomplishment at the end of my exercise...
another task completed.
That is why I was thrilled to open my Christmas present from Hubbs this year...
to find a Fitbit.
This little device on my wrist not only tells me what time it is,
but it also confirms that I walk a lot of miles in a day's time.
It has read-outs for heart rate, steps taken, stairs climbed, miles traveled by foot,
calories burned and hours slept.
By the time I finished the mid-afternoon chores, I had already taken 13, 758 steps...
walked 5.9 miles, burned over 2000 calories (which doesn't include the calories burned
while shoveling manure, or cleaning out goat houses...because I wasn't walking at the time)
and climbed 25 flights of stairs.
I rest my case!
Hubbs also gave me this wonderful cast iron tomato pot...
functional and beautiful!!
"Great gifts, Hubbs!!"
And.... fresh off the needles...
