Holy cow...that was my yard last night. It was SOOOO overgrown and huge!!
We have gotten so much rain here, I couldn't have mowed even if I had wanted to! Well Friday it was nice so I went through my yard and picked up all the sticks and such (big old trees don't make me happy when they drop their branches on my yard) and then I got my mower out, filled it up with gas, primed it...pull once...no start...pull twice...no start...pull three times....FLING the cord split in two and came completly off the mower. Ooops, I guess the work outs have been paying off and I don't know my own strength! Crap...I wasn't happy then and wasn't about to run and go buy another mower. No I waited until last night to do that LOL It rained most of the weekend and through Monday so last night was the first nice night so I sucked it up and bought a new mower. Yes I know, for all of you out there saying I could've had it fixed, it was an old mower that had been given to me and it was a push mower. I wanted a self propelled anyways so that's what I bought. I put it all together, got the oil and gas in it, primed it and wala it started on the first try! Damn I'm good! An hour later my yard looks a hell of a lot better!!! I still have so much work to do on it though, I need to seed and I need to pull weeds and...and...and the list goes on. I am going to show Kyler how to mow so he can start doing it this year but honestly, I like mowing so I may keep that job for myself.
Speaking of working out, I have changed up my workout routine and I kinda dig it. I was on this cardio kick where I would do at least two miles on the treadmill each day. I stopped losing weight though so I thougth I better switch it up. So now on M-W-F I still do my two miles but on Tu-Th I do one mile and then I do circuit training on all the weight machines. I can totally feel a change, I am sore again which I haven't felt in forever and it's a great feeling!! I weighed today and had lost a pound from last week, hey it's improvement. So now I am down 9.5 lbs since January and am at my lowest so far this year. I have lost a lot of inches though! I have my weight log from last year when I worked so hard between Jan and May and when I looked back this morning, the entry for 4/29/08 was my lowest weight entry for last year. Kinda crazy it is on the exact same day! I am still 6.5 lbs heavier than I was at this point last year but I'm getting there. The difference will be, I stopped working out mid May last year and this year I won't stop :)
