My Days Off Work

So, I have to explain to all of you that I am the type of person that cannot sit still.  I am so grateful for this because 50 lbs earlier, I did nothing but sit on the couch.  I used to spend my days off eating fast food and sitting on the couch.  The thought of just doing laundry exhausted me.  Fortunately, I have all the energy in the world now.


On my days off this week I decided some much needed pre-spring cleaning needed done!  I started with the refrigerator.  This made me laugh because we have had beer in there for about 3 years that apparently expired last year.  I thought it was funny because I didn’t know beer expired.  I also realized that we don’t really drink much because I don’t like taking in the empty calories and dehydrating myself.  So after I got the refrigerator cleaned out, I started on our 2nd bedroom.  Boy was this a room to tackle.  I have been using this room as storage for junk.  So, I went through the room.  I had a humongous pile that I threw out.  I also had a very nice size pile that I donated to Goodwill.  I donated some books, clothing, a TV, and a pair of shoes.  After about 4 trips to the trash can, lots of shredding of old documents, and a trip to Goodwill, the room is now usable.  It’s funny, I can even open the closet in there without stuff falling on my head.


My final thing to tackle was the dreaded pantry.  It’s amazing how much crap I can accumulate in a pantry.  The worst was how many dog treats that expired that I threw out.  I rarely give my dogs treats.  Some of you may disagree, however, I have been working in the veterinary field for 5 years.  I started as a receptionist and have moved my way up to being a veterinary technician assistant.  I have seen entirely too many obese dogs and saw how many health problems obesity causes in dogs.  It’s so very sad to me!  I know that an occasional dog treat isn’t bad for my K9 kids, but feeding them multiple treats daily and/or feeding them table scraps is the cause of pet obesity.  As many of you know, obesity in people can cause a multitude of health problems; in pets, the same is true.


I did get to enjoy a group run on 1 of my days off that included hill intervals.  I have decided that I would much rather run sprints on flat ground than run hills.  Hope all of you are having a great week and have got great workouts in!
