Well, today was another one of those "Days Off". Meaning that I took Squeak to school (daycare, but its at the school, and that just sounds good). So, first thing, I dropped him off, yes, I got the girls on the bus (different school) and fed cows. We were supposed to get a blizzard. It was bad, but not that bad. ~4 inches of wet, fluffy, snow and still coming down.
I had just rec'd my final copy of the Beef Expo Catalog to proof that AM. But, I wanted to get some outside work done. Feed was supposed to be delivered today, so I set out to ready the barn. (Remember my fitness goals, they'll work their way in here) I started at the SouthWest End of the Indoor Arena, cause that's where I want to park the two gravity wagons.
OHHH, forgot to tell you, CARPENTERS
But, I DID IT!!! I piled ALL of the good wood in one section, and put the mid-sized sheets of tin on top. I picked up all of the small scraps of wood and paper trash and put them on the flatbed (read-10000 squats). I moved the chicken pen (a dog kennel) to the 2nd bay in the SW corner, and made them a pretty new nest (thank you Carrie). I hung up all of the extension cords nice and neat (6). I fed new cows in lot, Pet cows in lot, calves in lot, i gave them all new hay bales. I watered everything, and then I had luch with my honey.
Came back from town, and finished all of the little stuff. This entire time, I was working fast. I couldn't have kept up any conversation, so I think I was doing pretty good. I kept chanting, no panting "round pen". I will get a round pen set up in here this month to start working colts!
As I was doing all of this work (AND LOVING IT) I was thinking of excuses, reasons, why I didn't NEED to walk to the mailbox. "I did like 5 million squats picking up this stuff" If I have walked the entire length of this barn 250 times today, how many feet is that?" and "I really have gotten a workout today". But then I kept thinking how, if I make an excuse today, I will want to make an excuse tomarrow, and so-on and so-forth.
So, I didn't get the mail. I didn't drive to get it, but I didn't walk either.
Oh yeah, and when I went to get a load of hay @ 2:30, I got a Dr.Pepper and Peanut M&M's. Bad deal. Had to do it. You see, I'm hypoglycemic, and I knew I was going to crash after all that physical work, and needed the sugar (yes I should have had my trail-mix with nuts and sugar, but I didn't). Anyone have any suggestions, for after workout ways to not crash??
I still had tons of fun, and I did get a good workout. My, feet, butt, calves, and arms, say that I did a GOOD job!!
