Forward lunges, chair squats, pliƩ squats (my fav), wall push-ups - 10 of each
64+ ounces of water
Two meals - late breakfast, early dinner (not a good idea, I do much better with three meals)
4 miles in 84 minutes. Waaaaaay slow today.

I wrestled with the garden tiller today, which is a workout in itself, and planted two kinds of garlic, one to braid and a hardneck variety (German Extra Hardy) which does very well in my neck of the woods, but you have to store it in bags. After that I trimmed some bushes and then I went for my walk. It was about 2 p.m. and pretty warm when I left, and I was so tired from all the gardening. I just decided to plod along and get it done and not think about how hot and tired and grumpy I was.

This accountability thing is working. I don't mind reporting that I was really slow, but I didn't want to report that I wimped out completely.

Proud of you for getting the whole walk in. Gardening uses all the muscles in undpredictible patterns, unlike doing repetitive sets of exercises, so it's a great workout.

Just got back from my walk, it was a perfect example of how NOT to do it. First I stopped for about 10 minutes mid-way because of a sudden heavy rain shower. Then I stopped again because of a BOGO coupon at Burger King. Sigh.

Hey, Kitten, your walk gives me the opportunity to be grateful there aren't any fast-food outlets within walking distance! Thanks for your comments, you don't know how much they mean to me!
