Working off those holiday calories, the hard way.

Happy New Years everyone.
Well, it is still freezing here but at least this morning there was no ice on my car. I did not have a good new years. I spent it working and ended up walking off all of the calories I consumed over the holidays. Wanna know how???????

At my hospital we have a pneumatic tube delivery system to send meds to all of the units. Our's decided to go kerplunk. Sooooo, I spent the night running around the entire 400 bed, 5 story, 4 tower hospital delivering meds to everyone.

Needless to say, I burned a ton of calories since I was walking non-stop for 11 hours. I am finally at home, sitting on the couch with my feet pleading me for mercy and happy the night is over with. I do have the joy of looking forward to more calorie burning nights for the rest of the weekend since the system is not going to be fixed until Monday.

Sheeesh, I guess I shouldn't have made my new years wish to lose some weight. The big man upstairs must be having a great laugh at me for that one.

Again, Hoping you had an awesome new years and wishing you the best in 2011.


  1. Get some rest and stay warm. Happy New Year!

  2. Yep, be careful whatcha wish for & yada yada. I hope you weren't wearing fashionable shoes!

    Oh, and for the record, falling asleep is never my problem. I can fall asleep standing up. It's the staying asleep I need help with. Maybe you can walk to Vegas & dispense me a pill...I hear you're real practiced at it! Ha!
