I was moved a couple of weeks ago, from a fairly easy job to a job in the Shipping Department.
I work at ADIDAS and we ship out ADIDAS, Reebok, and Rockport.
Let me be the first one to tell you... Rockport shoes? Are freaking HEAVY.
Some of the boxes weigh just over 30 pounds, and I pick them up off the line and load them onto pallets. I step over and around pallets while carrying these boxes.
I am the ONLY woman who works in my department and feel an ..... OBLIGATION to be able to keep up with the guys I work with.
I lift all of the heavy boxes right along with them.... for 12 hour shifts..... and you know what?
this "girl" can out-work a lot of them back there.... ESPECIALLY the younger ones.
I also move full pallets with a pallet jack.... sometimes the pallets are broken on the bottom and it causes the Pallet-Jack to pull with a lot of.... resistance.
I have ONLY 8 pounds to go before I am at my goal weight. I want to be at my goal weight BY December 31. I will get my goal tattoo on Jan 1.
Strength..... in blue.... on my stomach....
Blue is the color for the Crohns and Colitis Foundation
My stomach, because that is the source of my pain, as well as my strength
The word "STRENGTH" Because I am, without a doubt, the strongest woman I know.
I look forward to posting my pic on Jan 2.
