I ordered five yards of mulch to put in all our outside beds. Never had ordered bulk before so wasn’t exactly certain how much was in a yard (Note: it’s a lot!). My husband and I moved that one wheelbarrow at a time for four straight hours without a break and got it all down. He managed the worst part (moving and spreading it), but I filled up the large wheelbarrow continuously for that whole time. Lots of bending and back work, and got my heart pumping. It was exhausting but a good kind of exertion and sore.
I had eaten a hard boiled egg with my coffee that morning, but then didn’t have anything to eat until our normal dinner. I wasn’t hungry at all. A year ago, there is no way I could have done any of this. At that time, I couldn’t even put on my socks without sitting down. I was obese then, completely sedentary and out of shape, and depressed. All I did for over twelve years since the last time I was thin was eat, go to work, come home, sleep and watch tv.
What a blessing keto has been. I still love every single meal (OMAD, usually). In that whole time, I have not had trouble staying on plan and have only strayed once at a wedding. I feel so healthy and fit now. I am motivated to tackle things that would have just been on my “wish list” before. I feel happier than I have in a very long time. This community has been a great resource to me.
