Open Work, Keeping Fit, and Lawn Care

I've been participating in Sun's Open Work program now for about 4 years.  I used to live in Colorado and worked at Sun's Broomfield campus, but I wanted to be closer to my extended family as I started my own family.  And, Sun's work-from-home program allowed me to do just that.

Two kids later, I am still enjoying the benefits of working from home and it has really worked well for me.  There are a number of advantages about working from home, but one downside is the tendency to keep working through the day without ever leaving the house...or your chair.  This is bad for both your mental and physical health.

Another problem I have is that my lawn is getting out of control.  The weeds outnumber the blades of grass and it's starting to become kind of embarrassing. 

So, to combat these multiple problems, I'm going to start a new lawn care fitness routine.  Every day, I'm going to try to take 30 minutes out of my day to go outside and do yard work.  I'll get some exercise, get some fresh air, clear my head, and start making my yard look better. 

I'll let give an update in the next few weeks to see how things are going.
