To Exercise or Not To Exercise?

That is not the question. I know I should, I intend to, I'm ready to go and then John says I'm going to the ranch, wanna go? Does a kid like candy? Of course I want to go. I can hear those cows and turtles calling my name. Have you ever tried to count bales of hay in the field? Its a little like trying to count cows except the hay doesn't move. We drove down the middle of the field and counted to the right and turned back and counted to the left. 105 and a half. You say a half? Guess the baler malfunctioned and spit out an incomplete one. Let the winter come now. I wish! We've had a wild turkey hen take up residence near the stock tank. We've seen her three times now. I almost fell on my butt twice this morning going down to the edge of the water. I had the perfect area to feed from but with the rains and the cows tromping around the area is rough. The catfish slept late again so I was almost out of food when they showed up. The area where the hay barn was has been all cleaned up and the brush from in front stacked to burn. They nailed down the tin on the roof of the old house so we're thinking they have changed their mind about tearing it down. We came home after paying Juan for the hay baling. Summer has arrived in south Texas.

I didn't walk this morning because 1) I was feeling a little dizzy and 2) the temperature got up there before I could get out. It's 96 degrees right now (2:25 pm).

Hmmm ... it sounds to me like your trips to the ranch also provide you with some exercise (almost like having your cake and working it off, too!).
Best,
Marty

Stay out of the heat

Exercise is always good, but summer is not the best of times for starting. I was stationed at Fort Sam Houston during the summer of 1967 for combat medic training and the heat was horrible.

Some things are just more fun than exercising.
I do walk 2 day a week should be every day.
I don't look at my treadmill because its gives
me a guilt trip and may ruin the day. It is good for hangiing things on. My old one was good for holding two hanging flower baskets.
Dressed up the house. I may start tomorrow.
Will keep you posted.

Believe me when I say we can always find something to do better than excercise . I am trying to get back to excercising my back and hips. I hate it.

I wish I could exercise. I was told last week no more exercising until after surgery which is on Thursday. I'm feeling lazy! LOL

It got here fast didn't it? My memories of bailing hay are tainted by the number of snakes I encountered. No bites, but plenty of shot nerves.
