Squats are super, yes they are!

Thursday, February 18, 2021

Well they’re super for me , anyway.....

But why?

Because, having made squats part of my workout over the last five years, I have discovered that they help in my functional fitness...


What do I mean by that?

Well, when I’m gardening and moving along a border by the drive, alternately weeding and sweeping the debris, as I was today, I was able to squat and bend over to weed, rather than needing to kneel and get up every few seconds, thereby putting less weight and pressure on my knees... it also made the job faster and I was able to get the drive clear in about an hour and a half today ( it also helped that I did the job at the end of the summer, but that took over three hours and half an hour later fresh leaves had fallen; not so today!)


This is outside my sewing room - all clear!


This is a little further, towards the front gates - also clear!

We have friends coming tomorrow and I do like to present a good first impression...

Other news from me... still getting 3-4 eggs a day, so will be baking a cake for our visitors tomorrow as they are coming for morning coffee and we will give them some eggs to take home as we have plenty...

A new NSV - as I have lost about thirty pounds from my highest weight when I first rejoined the gym five years ago, my sports vests are now fitting me ‘longer’ as less stretch is required around me, if that makes sense....

Another new NSV - my shoes are not so snug and my long boots are really comfortable now as my calves have slimmed down and my feet are less ‘splodgy’.

Third new NSV - my engagement ring swings round my finger, kept on by my knuckle and the fact that it is next to my wedding ring...

I think the animals have been spying on me....
