Let's go back in time for a bit...

  • mop office
  • Clean bathroom - sink, toilet, window, mirror
  • Garbage goes out Monday
  • Litter Box gets done on Tuesday
  • dust all decorative items in living room

  • bundle up old newspapers/mail/magazines/papers
  • Garbage and Recycling goes out on Weds
  • Change fish tank water
  • vacuum living room

Okay, now let's come back to the present...

Today I did a major water change in the Freds' tank. I took out over 12 gallons of water and added in another 12. That might not seem like much work, but the fish tank is 2 rooms away from the kitchen and I only have 2 buckets to work with. One is a 4 gallon that I use to take the dirty water out of the tank, and one is a 2 gallon that I use to put clean water back in. That's a lot of back and forth!
Especially when you consider the fact that 1 Gallons [US] = 8.3452641093 Pounds
That means I lifted and carried over 200lbs!

I am going to have some nice looking arms in a few weeks if this keeps up!

I also ran around outside with Tango for a bit this morning. That was fun and Tango really seemed to enjoy that I was running around too instead of sitting on the steps watching him like I usually do.

Tango is starting to get fat. This is bad. He is a rescue dog and when we got him he was super skinny so on one hand it is nice to see him looking healthy, since he's not actually FAT yet but on the other hand I do not want him to have any of the health issues associated with overweight dogs. It looks like it's time to start bringing back our daily walks instead of just playing in the yard.

What's on your to do list? What kind of workouts have you done this week?


  1. OMG we only have a 10 gallon tank and I am always exhausted after cleaning out that thing. DEFINITELY counts as a workout.

  2. DAMN! That's a lot of water!!!!

  3. Fold laundry! I've been closing the guest room door which is currently housing a monster pile of clothes to be folded so I won't have to see it :)

  4. that is a ton of water! you'll be sore tomorrow!

    i went to jazzercise today and may do the Shred tomorrow. we are hosting a play date here tomorrow w/ two little boys. my girls are dreading it b/c the boys like to tear their doll house apart. LOL. i love it b/c their mom is fun and funny and we get to chat a little bit while the kids scream and run around.

  5. Wow thats a lot of water to change!
