The long and winding road to fitness, day 108

A bowl of Cheerios

Whew!!  This was a day that could drive anyone to drink…fortunately for me, I only drank diet Pepsi and water…I say fortunately because I was at work and they tend to frown on you drinking anything, oh let’s say, alcoholic, while on the clock.  So at least I got that right.

We had an early morning truck, early as in 5 am…lovely~  I must admit, the weather was great for working outside.  We didn’t even need jackets at that hour of the morning (night).  This was a huge truck, took a long time to get it unloaded and staged.  I had to work upstairs for a while organizing some of the seasonal merchandise that came in….lots of lifting and running around all day today. 

I’ll be honest here, other than some stretching and range of motion stuff for my poor sore shoulder, working the truck was all the exercise I did today.  And I don’t even feel guilty about it.  I’m so tired and sore right not that I don’t even want to think about much of anything to do with exercise (at least until tomorrow).  I know this kind of work isn’t really aerobic, but it is a form of strength training, I do believe…don’t agree with me?  Well, come on down this coming Monday and help us work another big truck at 5:30 in the morning.  We’ll be waiting for you, just ring the bell and someone will let you in.  Then we’ll see what you have to say about it once we’re done.

My eating was a little odd today.  I did eat a bowl of Cheerios with a banana and skim milk before I left for work.  Once we finished unloading and staging the truck, I ate  some little lite frozen pizza bites (they weren’t really that good, not likely I’ll be buying those again any time soon).  Lunch was a chicken breast, cole slaw and a biscuit.  I had a small glass of oj this afternoon and that’s it.  I told you it was odd.  As far as calories are concerned, it was okay, but not really the best day nutritionally.  Oh well, tomorrow’s another day.

My step sister stopped in at the store today to give me some pictures of my mom and her dad from when they went to Hawaii…1985…unbelievable how young they looked.  It was so nice to spend a little time catching up with Kathy.  One of these days I won’t be working all the time and we’ll get together and do something fun and exciting!

So did you have a more exciting day than I had?

  1. I was going to say that bowl of Cheerios looked like the dinner I had last night! Today I had lunch with hubby, then went to a viewing at a funeral home this evening. So, good and bad. Not really bad, per se, just not one of those fun activities. I don’t have any trouble believing you get a good workout at work, so don’t expect me to ring the bell that early in the morning! lol My shoulder must be having sympathy with yours. What’s up with that? I’m icing mine, it was not happy with stretching. I hope tomorrow is a better day for you.

    • I like having a bowl of cereal for dinner sometimes too. Not too filling, but tastes pretty darn good. Sorry you had to go to a viewing at the funeral home today, one of those things it seems like we’re doing more and more now that we’re a little older, doesn’t it? Hmm…I maybe should try icing my shoulder, kind of hard to do that in the middle of the work day tho, I can stretch any where, get some odd looks about it sometimes tho. Today was a decent day, at least we didn’t have to unload a truck!!
