Day 9 of the Ultra Blog Challenge
I read this article today which suggests that we should turn housework into a workout. Now that the weather is warmer and days are longer. I plan to convert the following 4 household chores into my summer keep fit options that won't cost me anything:
1. Walking: Now that I have the fitbit, I hope to for regular walks at least once a day. On the days when I don't have much shopping I will walk to the shops and back. All that walking and lifting should be good for my muscles.
2. Gardening: Although I have a gardener, I plan to do a bit of weeding and start growing some herbs in a grow bag. I find working in the garden very therapeutic and the fresh air and sunshine will be a bonus.
3. Cleaning: I am going to use my spare the time to organise cupboards, clean windows, net curtains etc. All the bending and stretching should be good for my muscles.
4. Climb the stairs: At work and at home I will climb the stairs as often as I can. Again this is good exercise for the legs.
Apart from these simple exercises, I plan to eat healthy and drink plenty of water.
