I was reading some article last week that talked about exercise and physical activity and how both are better than being sedentary. The author talked about how exercise involves a sustained effort that raises the heart rate and how physical activity is basically moving around and raising the heart rate above baseline (but nothing too strenuous).
So today is a physical activity day. Mowed the yard and pulled some weeds. All that pushing, pulling, bending, and moving stuff around the yard has to count for something! Not to mention getting some vitamin D from the sun! Next will be some spring cleaning. If I am motivated, might pop in an exercise video later followed by an evening walk with the bf and the dogs. Physical activity days make for good recovery/rest days from hard work-outs.
