When I started working on my back yard earlier this summer, I never imagined I would start to look forward to the task. Nor did I consider that I'd start building muscle!
Yet here I am with firmer biceps--mostly from pulling out vines at the root. I feel stronger over all. Losing weight doesn't hurt, either. It's all tied together, of course. Lose weight, get more active. Get active, lose more weight.
Best of all, I'm experiencing far less pain in my knees (arthritis) and back (scoliosis). After years of daily pain, I'm sure I could used to that!
