I just want to apologize to my many American friends who miss out on the opportunity for one of the best workouts of their lives...
This is me and my main workout tool for the day - the shovel.
The best part of this exercise regimen is definitely the heaving of heavy shovelfuls of snow. They only need to be tossed up about 5-6 feet in the air. (We have had an unbelievable amount of snow this winter!)
You can't tell, but there is a 4 foot tall bush dividing our driveway and the neighbours.
This slightly less dangerous pile is the kids' "mountain." The only problem is that the driveway needs to be re-shovelled after they climb it!
And just to put this small pile in perspective... Remember my friend, the shovel? I'm guessing it's just under 5 feet tall.
Definitely the most effective calorie-burning twenty minutes of my life. The best news is - I get to do it all over again today!
