Running a trencher use up and shoveling tons of dirt and rocks? That is what we did all weekend and boy do I hurt and am I beyond tired. We had to trench 150’ in hard packed clay, rock and big rock and 210’ in much softer but root impacted yard. And since the trencher we rented only digs the hole we had to push all that dirt back in and the requires lots of arm and back strength. In the end we’ll have a cheaper electric bill and also no line loss but to do that WOW.
The hard packed driveway.
The softer soil and what was my daisy flower bed.
My nemeses when we returned it today
I’m not quite sure what part of me hurts the most, the stomach muscles, my arms or my back. But I lost 2 lbs while working out in the heat and sunshine ( I had gained one pound mid week so lost that and one more).
So my official weight for this weeks weight in is 172.4.
My eating was weird this weekend. Nothing on plan only because who’s going to cook when your running a trencher. I just did salad from a bag, fruit from containers and yogurt. I didn’t once count calories so I couldn’t even begin to tell you the total but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t over.
I started a new exercise program. It’s called Learn to Run a 5K in 100 days. Brad Gansberg is the teacher and he’s done some amazing things and one of them is to hopefully teach me to be able to run a 5K in 100 days. It is 110 days until I want to fully run a 5K. Now Brad was a sweetie cuz he started this challenge and all the instructions 3 weeks ago and really didn’t want any new students but I explained what I wanted to do, what I’ve been doing and since I have just close to 100 days, well he excepted my. YEAH!!! I had planned on starting my first training day Friday but that didn’t work out with all the work we did since then but tomorrow I am off in the morning so first thing I will do day 1.
So this doesn’t change my goals for Debbi’s Slimmer this Summer challenge except I won’t be doing the C25K program, I’ll work with Brad. It also doesn’t effect my Phase 6 with Allan so all is good there.
So all in all, life is good. Busy but good. Walk/jogging tomorrow, rug cleaning and then since Mike is off we are going to go geo-caching and scouts in the evening. That will take care of Monday.
I am sorry I haven’t had time to stop by any blogs to support anyone this weekend. I will try and make it this week. From the ones I read last week you all were doing fantastic. Keep it up, I know that you can do what you planned on doing.
Take care and God Bless!!
