My Current Workout

So I've been so busy with packing that I haven't had time for a regular workout. But what I have been doing has resulted in me being a tired, sweaty, sore mess. This is my current routine:

Acquire multiple cardboard boxes. Pack your belongings in them, go lite on number of books per box, but really stuff everything else in. Tape closed. Repeat until you have packed everything you own, or you run out of boxes.
Move all boxes onto your front porch.
Run each box down stairs to the ground, lift and shove into vehicle. Run back up stairs. Repeat until all boxes are placed in vehicle and you are sweaty, worn out, and slightly sore.

Fill more cardboard boxes with items you want but don't have room for upstairs. Place in basement, allow to get very dusty.
Pick a very hot day and go into basement, it's best if there is little to no airflow there.
One by one, carry each box over to stairs, lift over head and place on platform of stairs where your partner (husbands work well) can grab it and throw it outside. Continue until every last box is out. This is best if you can find many (lets say 7) boxes of books that your husband packed incredibly full and if you have some heavy and awkwardly sized camping supplies.
Drag self up stairs (oh! added cardio!) and then proceed to help carry each and every item to awaiting trucks, lift onto insanely high tailgate. Repeat until all boxes are in trucks and you are sweaty, tired, and slightly sore.
Now go to your inlaws home and help unload every single box and place in their garage. You will again be a tired, sweaty mess.

Yeah, so that's what I've been up to. What about you?


  1. I hadn't seen you posting lately and then remembered that you were packing. Good luck! When are you moving? Take care of yourself and lift with your knees. :)

  2. Added workout - move them all into your new house. That means you get to pack them back into the car and then unload them into the house and then who knows where they will all go from there. Some will probably go into a basement or attic only to be taken back to the main part of the house a couple of weeks later.

    Hehe - it will be worth it in the end!

  3. Meredith - We close Friday and hope to get everything moved Friday and Saturday. Fingers crossed! Then after we get settled I should be back to posting more.

    Jcam- Ugh, how depressing, lol. I just keep telling myself that it will be worth it :)
