Hello again sparkpeople! Today was an exhausting day at work, to say the least. I worked an extra 12-hour shift but not in the warehouse, in the mixing room. We make, store and ship cookies where I work. What a vocation for a man trying to life healthy!
The particular cookie I made was very involved. Six 50 lb bags of a sugar substitute went into each batch. Each bag had to be sifted into a larger receptacle then put into another receptacle in order to be loaded into the mixer. That's 1800 lbs. of lifting per batch! To say that I am exhausted is an understatement. The pumps for the invert sugar and the corn syrup were broken so we loaded them manually, as well. That's another 300 lbs. I am whipped! It is a good thing that I have been struggling with exercise because what I have done right has payed off. I did the work and earned 12 hours on my paycheck for my family.
