Stick a fork in me...

Monday, August 27, 2012

...I'm done. I mowed for another 45 minutes tonight after work. Another night or maybe two and I'll be done for the week. Just in time for the weekend again so I can start all over LoL. Using the push mower is much more beneficial to my health than the riding mower. I keep repeating that to myself as I stagger up and down the hills. That mower gets heavier with every trip!

My boss is back and I got in 15,892 steps today and climbed up pallet racks like a monkey. I'm supposed to call one of the guys over for stuff like that but I'm not very good at that part of "supervising". If I'm right there and I know what I want to look at why call someone over, wait for them to bring a ladder and climb up? I can jump up to the bottom row and stand up to see it myself. But anything higher than that I'm calling a guy. I'm not THAT stupid!

All in all, good day and I'm a good kind of tired.

Trying a new thing in the crock pot tonight. I love, love, love chili so I'm trying just the pinto beans, tomato juice and chili seasoning without any meat. It sure smells good so far!

    Hey, how was the chili??? Don't you love the "good kind of tired?" I wimped out and used our tractor to mow yesterday. I felt like I was riding a bucking bronco so I rationalized that it had to be worth some fitness minutes. But of course, I didn't cheat and now I have a week with a big fat O in the fitness tracker. Kudos to you though! I loved the mental image of you climbing like a monkey! Remember to keep safe because we all need to you be around to keep Sparking! Have a great week!

    Was it good? The chili? I bet it was!

I gotta give you kudos! You sound like a go-getter! I was the same way at my job. Now I just stand around and count pills. I miss the other side...
