Make It Work

I was feeling rotund after a father-daughter lunch date at Firehouse, followed by 2 of the chocolate chip cookies I brought in. Not knowing what else to do, I locked myself in the handicap stall of the bathroom (none of my coworkers are equipped with wheels... thankfully). Once inside I completed 2 sets of 25 squats and 2 sets of 15 pushups (I scrubbed my hands mercilessly afterwards, no worries). I cut myself off before doing crunches because (1) the tile hurts my lower back (or would... I mean, it's not like I've tried...) and (2) I didn't want my bottom to be dirty. When I emerged from the rest/fitness room, I was feeling a bit tighter and leaner, and the quick burst of exertion left my face flushed in an attractive manner. I might go back in a little while. I'm going to start marketing my plan as Buns of Porcelain. I'll send you an advance copy of the DVD if you're interested.

P.S. As a follow up to yesterday's Polkanomics lesson, I will be posting photos of my loot tomorrow as well as locations of the finds, which will be particularly appealing to my CLT readers.

OMGosh so weird that you say all this... My coworker/best friend started our own bathroom fitness routine last week! We have a private restroom - and we've made a deal that every time we go in, we have to do 2 different types of exercise(squats, arm raises, pushups). We're even thinking about stashing a pair of hand weights under the sink!

i do laps around my office hallways, no one has noticed.. yet. & when the weather is nice i go for walks during lunch (and pretend cigarette breaks, i don't smoke, but i walk back & forth between the office and the 'smoking area') ooh the price we pay for those extra chocolate chip cookies! :)

Oh my gosh...that is too funny, and I'm still so much of a germ freak that even with washing your hands, I have to say Gross, and I would never do it! Ha-Ha!

That is so funny! I just don't feel like our bathroom at work is clean enough for that! Obviously you have a much better one that mine!

AHHHHHHHH! I admire your dedication but am also a little nervous about bathroom floor germs!
