This weekend was one of unintentional exercise. That exercise counts twice in my book because it is usually a lot more fun.
We won tickets for the family to go to a local amusement park. Saturday was the only day that worked for us to go before the tickets expired. Friends of our had also won some tickets, so we made it a joint day of rides and fun. How is this exercise, you might ask? According to my FitBit, I walked almost 4 miles in that park. It was a cold and rainy day, my body worked hard staying warm. Not cardiovascular, I admit. But I was moving around and NOT eating the funnel cake my tummy screamed for. Exercise in will power to boot!

Just so you don't think I only split one log's worth of wood.
This was only 1/3 full when we started. With the exception of the two logs the boys took a swing at, I split this wood. My abs got a work out. My arms found muscles that were lost long ago. My legs are sturdy. I am actually surprised at the sense of accomplishment I feel.
So while, I didn't "work out" in a way most people think about, I exercised just living life. I know I won't be able to work like this everyday, but it was a good couple of days of getting healthy.
Let's do this.
