There have been a few changes at work. I am in a building where there’s no elevator (yet) and I worked on the second floor. Every day, I climbed stairs to get to my office, and if I needed to go anywhere, or go to lunch, always the stairs! When I found out we were moving to the basement, I was happy for several reasons, not least of which was the lack of stairs.
Now, there are ding-dang hills, and they are unavoidable! No matter where I park (which is always a little hike in), or where I’m going...there they are! I am about to decide the stairs are better! However, it is the only exercise I get, so I’d best not complain. Plus, I really do like my job.
When I first came to work here, I was sure I’d lose weight with all the stairs and the trot in. I think I managed to gain! Not sure how that happened.
One negative thing about the basement…it’s where the vending machines are. Once upon a time, I would have to maneuver two flights of stairs for a bag of chips or a candy bar, and it just wasn’t worth it. Now, the machines are right around the corner from my door. It’s also where the monthly birthday parties are. It’s a lot easier to go back for seconds or thirds if you’re next door as opposed to a couple of flights of stairs. By the end of the year, the parties should be on the first floor.
Of course, I can’t make the food behave; I need to work on my own gluttony, don’t I? Ohhh, Greed! Release me and leave me alone!
