I'm busy just like you. Today I had paper work to do in the morning plus laundry and mowing the yard. I had an appointment at 11:15, and I needed to get to school early to prepare for my journalism students. My daughter had a dentist appointment right after school, and then we had to photograph a tennis tournament.
I was trying to think creatively, but it was going to be hard to fit exercise into the schedule. I strapped on my ankle weights, 1.5 pounds each, and started the lawn mower. Our yard is not totally flat, and our lawn mower is not self propelled. Before I had finished half the front my heart rate was up and I was breathing hard. By the time I finished the back, I had probably gotten a better workout than I do when I run.
This came from Reader's Digest:
Did you hear about the sword swallower who was on a diet? He was on pins and needles for six weeks.
