3 p.m. Smoke Break

Thursday, June 16, 2011

No, I don't smoke. But several employees at my work place do. I figure if they go out for 4-5 cigarettes per day at 10 minutes per smoke break, that's 40-50 minutes each day they get for break that I don't. So I made a deal with my boss. I take my "3 p.m. smoke break." I walk around the block 2 to 5 times depending. One lap is .4 miles. Today I did 5 laps on my 3 p.m. smoke break for a total of 2 miles! Woot!

This is the guy who was checking me out on my smoke break today. emoticon



He doesn't show up very good, but it was a squirrel who kept circling around the tree to keep an eye on me.

    Fabulous idea! I had that problem when I had a job where you could take smoke breaks (I'm a teacher now - so no one can just step outside a smoke - thank goodness). You used a disadvantage you used to have and turned it into a weight loss advantage. Great thinking!

    That is an awesome deal you made with your boss. at first I couldn't see the squirrel, and in the first picture the three cut branches make the tree look like it had eyes and a nose and that is what initially I saw. lol

    Good thing your boss is so understanding. One other aspects of the smokers' many breaks is that non-smokers end up doing some of the work for the smokers, even if it is only answering phones. Not fair at all. Keep up the walking. That was a creative idea. -- Lou

    OMG, I seriously thought you were a smoker LOL
    Good deal you have made with your boss, and, in all honesty, you spend your time in a more productive fashion. Good going!
