PSA We bought 30 acres and it's kicking my butt

Just thought I'd share this.  I didn't consider the fact that owning property would test me physically.  I used to be in shape...blah, blah, blah and have let things go.  I saw the light on friday while attempting to clear about 100sqft of small trees.  I worked for about an hour and was physically spent.  So for anyone planning to buy a homestead consider your physical conditioning.  I am committed to losing 30+ pounds in the next 4-5 months and then continue from there.  Really pissed at myself.

surfivor:
That's what's food about all that, cutting and clearing is good exercise. Do some for awhile and you can have a good nap that office work won't get you

BriGy86:
Sounds like a great way to lose that weight.  At least your killing 2 birds with one stone vs spending your time in a gym.  Just take your time.

Regarding office work; I think mine's turning me in to veal.

never_retreat:
Doing the work is the exercise, you don't need to loose weight to do the work.
Ever hear the term farmer strong?

archer:
tell me about it. my wife and son and i have been clearing tall grass/blackberries for the last few weeks and wife/i really hurt after spending a few hrs of doing it.. who needs a gym, clear blackberry!
