Worked My Butt Off

I wish!  The company I work for is going through an audit.  We are having to pull accounts payable (me) information for the last 5 years.  Our controller did most of it, pulling over 600 documents.  He tasked me with finding the ones he couldn't.  Everything is in bankers boxes up on the third floor of the building.  In a dark, dingy, ultra-filthy room.  They are stacked 4-5 boxes high by year.  I have hefted more boxes in the last 2 days than I care to remember. BUT, but, I have also lost almost 2 pounds in the last 2 days. 

So, there is the key (for me).  The dreaded "E" word.  Exercise.  <heavy, heavy sigh>  FINE!!


  1. Just the little things can add up to big things. Or in your case, a huge audit can add up to you losing more!! The E word can be so taunting, but so good for our body, soul and well being!! You are doing well, you can keep going, you will succeed!!! Wishing you a GREAT week!


  2. I'm glad that you are getting more out of the deal than just stress! Congrats on the 2 lb loss! I hope you get to find a fun way to exercise this week. It's great that you found a way to find the silver lining. Stay strong and have a great week!

  3. Congrats Carla on the 2 pound loss! Better to have that than to not have any!
    Keep working your butt off!
    Always on the Move- MER

  4. what a way to lose it....but take the loss as its brilliant! 2 more pounds you wont ever see again
    Well done x
