My new fitness routine
I am away from my CrossFit - have you noticed? I think ... 5 weeks now? Too long to be calling myself a CrossFitter, that's for sure. I got busy (I know, lame excuse) with other projects, and honestly was not getting enough sleep to give up an hour to the gym. Now that I'm home I get enough sleep but the gym is a half hour away. I want to build the gym back into my routine, I really did enjoy it, but in the meantime, I haven't given up on the journey to the healthy part of the happy and healthy homestead. I'm on what Hubby jokingly calls FarmFit, which is just a fun way of saying "I keep busy working around the homestead." Here's some proof:
Sure, I have a trailer for my little riding mower, but it was a small trek from the cinder block pile to my garden, and using the wheelbarrow saves a little gas and builds a little muscle. So I get to save money and get a workout while the job gets done, in about the same amount of time. Bonus! So, instead of going to the gym alone, I am working around the property, hiking, and playing with the kids to stay fit. Speaking of which, now that I planted my new cedar trees, I need to patch my bike inner tube to go riding later this week, after I chainsaw some big logs into firewood.
