Workout Alternative

This morning I felt quite tired so instead of doing a workout at the gym I decided to go for a walk with Rob and TJ then do a spot of ‘landscaping’. When I did the garden beds a few months ago, I pulled out lots of rocks. They’ve been sitting in a big pile by the garage, getting in everyone’s way

This morning I moved them all out to the driveway side of the house so we can eventually get rid of them all. It took me about half an hour to move them all

No more rocks to trip over!

I find gardening or landscaping is a great alternative to a traditional gym workout.

After my efforts I sat outside and enjoyed a banana blueberry smoothie

Lunch was a salad with mixed greens, celery, spring onions, tomato and canned chicken, dressed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, plus a bread roll

Dinner was a salmon, chickpea and lemon frittata with salad, plus a slice of toast with sterol spread (not pictured)

Finished a big job for work today (proofreading a 480-page book) so am looking forward to having a relaxing weekend.

See you tomorrow!

Food looks delicious, as per usual Charlotte. Nice work on the rock removal. :) This weekend I plan to finally finish building the vege garden (which with all rain has become a haven for alot of weeds). It's time to plant some veges! I'm just looking forward to finally being able to do some gardening again.
