Here are my stats:
145 avg heart rate
My Mom only did 25 minutes but it's a start. Then she helped me unpack three of my bags of random stuff. If I do two or three a day I should be unpacked in a week! It's pretty important because I have absolutely nothing to wear. I'm stuck with only plain tank tops and running shorts for now.
Healthifying my Home Life Part 1: Start a Garden
Gardening is a great way to stay healthy while living at home! Other than getting me to be active outside, I will have fresh vegetables all the time once everything's ready for harvest.
I didn't get around to starting my own garden today but I went over to boyfriend's and worked in his garden. Gardening is hard work!!! I wore my hrm because I was curious how many calories I was burning. In an hour and 45 minutes I burned around 140 calories. Not bad!
We had to finish expanding his garden to get it to the right size so the majority of the time was spent ripping up grass with a pitchfork, throwing it in a wheel barrow, and then wheel barrowing it over to the woods and dumping it once it was full. I was supposed to do my arm workout today but I think the gardening arm workout will suffice!
After doing this we had to remove all the rocks in the dirt and wheelbarrow them away before we were finally able to plant.
Then we planted a few tomato plants and a few eggplants.
He already has a lot of stuff planted from before: asparagus, radishes, strawberries, onions, carrots, lettuce, peppers, and spinach.
After all that hard work, I went inside and made lunch. I was in the mood for a salad after working with the vegetables.
Here's my toppings:
- wheat germ
- cottage cheese
I'm off to head home, shower, and eat dinner. Have a good night!
