Day 18: Hoeing and Hip-checks

Saturday was a wonderful day out for some gardening.  The wife and I got up early to check out the selection at the farmers market, spying some wonderful smelling basil, as well as a bunch of other tasty veggies.  She even got some steaks from local, pasture raised beef.  I think all my bleeding-heart animal welfare-ism is starting to rub off on her.

We not only picked up some locally grown food, but we are beginning to grow our own in the new community garden at work.  We stopped by a nursery, after spending quite a bit of time trying to find their location, as they had moved and not put up an obvious sign at the old location.  With a bit of digging and some heavy lifting, we planted some nice rows of tomatoes, eggplant, cucumber, and peppers.  Should be a good harvest in a few months.  If we don't kill them.

After the gardening, it was time to get our workout on, and even though we had already spent a few hours sweating outside, we needed to get our sweat out indoors.  It was back to plyometrics, and we both definitely brought it this time.  The wife was able to get through the entire thing without feeling ill, which is quite an accomplishment for this workout, as I am usually feeling at least light headed and at worst am grabbing for a bucket.

We got that in, then it was off to watch the Texas Stars kick the pants off the Hershey Bears to take a 2-0 lead in the Calder Cup finals.  I wisely ate before the game, as there wasn't a single item at the stadium that was nutritious and didn't contain animal products.  It was still tough to resist the call of frozen custard after the game, but I stayed strong.  It was made easier by the sweet taste of the Cliff Bar I had mid-game.
