Move that body: 2.4-mile walk with Denali and Mark
I am not going to lie: I was starting to feel like a bit of a slacker this weekend. Exercise-wise, that is. I did a big fat nothing yesterday and this morning’s planned run was swapped for a post-brunch walk.
Then I realized something. I may not have worked out but I worked. With a capital manual labor.
was transformed into this …
The future site of my vegetable garden. And while there might have been a slight exaggeration in the first photo, I swear that there were mutant dandelions that hand 12-inch roots.
And, of course, there was this …
which was turned into this …
The baby’s room is painted!
Of course, I did have some help with that task.
Mark was a definite trooper! It would have been an arduous task without him. As far as Denali? That sure is paint on his ear. I guess he felt the need to inspect our work.
I did some conservative estimates – 2 hours each painting and gardening – using my pre-pregnancy weight, and I burned more than 1,100 calories! I guess I have no reason to feel like a slacker, and it definitely leaves no room to feel guilty about those Carrot Cake Waffles I made for brunch.
I assure you, though, friends that I made sure to take breaks, stay hydrated and lie in the grass with Denali. Twas glorious!
What did you do this weekend?
