Free Spa Day!

Here’s how to get yourself a free spa day, local to you, wherever you live.

  1. Take the money you would have spent on paying a spa and use it to buy a really good push mower.
  2. Crank ‘er up on a warm, steamy day, like today.
  3. Go at it for at least a half hour.

Here’s what all is included in this package:

  1. Aerobic workout, coupled with weight training.
  2. Tanning session that’s safer than using a tanning bed.
  3. Ozone-treated sauna session.
  4. Cool shower. (Well, I assume you’ll go for that, just inside the door, right?)

Some precautions:

  1. If you burn easily, or if it’s your first-ever venture into the great outdoors for any length of time, use sunscreen.
  2. Wear a broad-brimmed straw hat, preferably one with vents in the crown. If your hands are tender, you might want to wear gloves, also.
  3. Wet a small towel, such as a hand towel, somewhat drippy, and double it, lengthwise, over the back of your neck. Wear this the entire time you are outdoors, as a sort of coolant.
  4. Take breaks every half hour. These breaks can include swapping out the washer/dryer, because you love multi-tasking. These breaks must include being in from the heat and using a fan to cool off a bit, drinking a huge glass of water that is not too icy, and resting in a seated position.
  5. You may want to limit how much you do the first time out, depending on your age, sun-sensitivity, and tolerance to exercise. Check up on all that are appropriate from this list: pulse, blood pressure, blood sugar, even temperature, if you’re not sure.

That’s it. It is such a great workout! Have FUN!
