Oh, if only...

During the week I do half an hour on the elliptical cross trainer every
morning as soon as I get up (I thought it was incredibly extravagant at
first, but I can't deny the power of having it right in the next room).
During the summer months I tell myself that weekend yardwork counts as
exercise. In particular, if someone made an exercise machine that
mimicked mowing the lawn[1] I'm sure people would be lined up to use it.

Sadly, stress and caffeine do not have wondrous weightloss effects on
me. The opposite, if anything.


[1] which I do with a non-powered mower unless the grass has grown
longer[2] than that mower can deal with
[2] whereupon the ideal would be to use a scythe, but they are expensive
and I can be a little clumsy. It just seems like a bad idea.
