Ok, ok, so I totally forgot about my promise to have a fitness Friday. Mostly because I was busy playing in the garden Friday. Which leads me to my fitness tip! GARDENING! It's spring time and everyone wants to be outside. It's also time for people to put the finishing touches on their gardens. Why not make it part of your fitness routine? Did you know that raking and digging can burn up to 500 calories an hour?! How about that?
So if you want to trade in your spandex for a spade for a day or two this week, GO AHEAD! Get your gardening on!

WebMD has a great article on the benefits of gardening as exercise. Click here to read it.

With my 20'X60' garden we just put in for the summer, I'm going to be getting plenty of workouts as soon as that last bell rings!
