Yard Work.

So our yard is covered with weeds. It drives us nuts. So last night we decided to start pulling some of those terrible things. We went to Lowes, purchased some fertilizer, Bermuda grass seed, and black mulch. :-) We continued our yard work today, and man does it look great! :-) Tomorrow we should be finishing it up. :-)

Now, I know most of us don't have time to do yard work, ever. Or we just don't want to do it. I sure didn't want to do it. However, yard work is a GREAT way to burn some calories AND fix up your yard. Wake up five minutes earlier, do a little bit of yard work, shower, and go about your day. :-)

The best way to burn a bunch of calories, do it for an hour or so, work up a sweat, and drink plenty of ice cold water! :-) Ice water really boosts your metabolism! :-) The more boost that your metabolism gets, the more weight you lose! :-)

If I lose more weight than my fabulous husband by September 1st, I get to go get a massage. :-) If I beat him and get down to 135, I get the massage and 120 dollars worth of clothes. :-) Now, if he beats me, he gets a bar night of 100 dollars. If he beats me and gets down to 175, he gets his bar night and 120 dollars worth of clothing. :-) Sounds like a great reward, right? RIGHT! :-) I am so going to beat him and get down to 135 by the 1st. :-) Let me know what your goal is, and what your reward is! :-) Even if you are doing it solo, give yourself a reward at the end. It's how you keep yourself motivated to lose the weight, and keep it off. :-)
