Work Day

Today's non-traditional work out wasssss....

Pushing a wheelbarrow! It was the monthly grounds work day at the nature center where I work, and even though I was super busy wrapping up one event and getting ready for another, I hit the trails for an hour pushing wheelbarrows of wood chips from one location to another.

What I like best about the non-traditional (i.e. not in a gym and without typical "exercise equipment") workout is that it's usually so much fun! I like to think of our grounds days at work as "Doozer Days." Anyone remember the Doozers in Fraggle Rock? All they did was push their little carts back and forth and build structures all day long. Then the Fraggles came and ate them of course...

And what is a good meal to follow up a good workout? A hearty sandwich. Mmm. I'm an addict for a Subway foot-long hearty Italian sub roll with turkey, lettuce, tomato and olives. Even though it's tempting to pay the extra couple of bucks for a drink and chips, skip it! Not only will you save money, but you can choose something healthier like a glass of water and an apple.

I'm addicted to foot long roast beef and I always skip the chips and soda b/c it doesn't really go w/ a sandwich, I think.

My non traditional workouts this week was walking my ass off around DC. They are much more fun than traditional working out, which gets tedious.
