Alternative Exercise

So, I didn't get in a "formal" workout program today, but I burned some calories. Our church is having a big men's retreat this weekend; over 450 men are here. So today I worked in the coffee bar and kitchen. I was there from 9:15a.m. until 3p.m. working NON STOP the entire time.

Let me tell ya, I burned some calories fo shizzle. Probably more than I burn when I do my 30 Day Shred, even. I was running around, sweating like CRAZY. I had to step inside the huge walk-in freezer a couple of times just so I wouldn't spontaneously combust. I kid you not.

My only downfall today was I had 2 different coffees. Both were fat free and sugar free, but obviously, not dairy free. Other than that I had a banana, 1 piece of banana bread, a couple slices of turkey, a handful of baby carrots and now I'm eating a big bowl of Kashi. Oh, and 3 bites of my sister's PayDay bar. ;-)

I'm gonna hit the hay and read a while to relax, but I'll be back tomorrow. :-D


  1. One of the reasons I like the Bodybugg is that it tracks your calorie burn and it doesn't matter whether it is an organized workout or running around the house. You get "credit" for all of your activity so you don't have to feel like you've missed out on a workout. Sure, official workouts are better at targeting muscle groups for growth, but when it comes to losing weight, it is calories in versus calories out.

  2. It is amazing how much exercise we can get just doing "life"!

  3. Sounds like a waaay fun way to work out! woo hoo!

  4. Wow, I'm so jealous!! I really wanted to be a part of this weekend and felt left out being here at home with the kids. BUT at the same time, that is my mission field so...I'm thankful. =) Who watched your kids for you?

    Here's to a SUPER successful week!!
