Today was very nice out, so I decided to rake up the backyard since I have been wanting to get it cleaned up. I raked 75% of it with a hard rock rake, then I did the entire thing with a soft leaf rake. It came out looking much better; however, I had to stop and take a few breaks, before winter I would not have had a problem doing it without a break. I did not gain any weight over winter, but not being active (hibernating as I call it) has definitely made quite a bit of a difference! I am sure this has happened to all of us though.
