I had a pretty ho-hum weekend this week, on the go nonetheless. Saturdays are Uber days for me with no payment or incentive. Sundays are worship and pig-out days and I get to be a little gluggy and take long naps on weekday mornings to pay back my sleep debt 😁
Cass and I had our dose of pet therapy after just 15 minutes gazing at these ultra lovable doggies at the pet shop on Saturday. Though see no touch, I can feel spikes of oxytocin (that OMG, SO GERAM factor) gushing through my body when my eyes feasted on these super cute and fluffy pups. Cass was disappointed yet again when the Corgie that she’s been eyeing on was sold. We saw the new owner carry the Corgie away to her car 😪
Clockwise: Mini Shiba Inu, Chow Chow, Alaskan Malamute (all pups)
On Sunday, Alycia had a whale of a time at the Color Run with her bunch of friends. I think she must have only clocked in 4 hours of sleep on Sunday coz when I woke up at 5 a.m. on Sunday to wake her up, she was all ready already. Her friend came to our place at 5-ish a.m. and the hubs dropped them at Padang Merbuk for flag off at 7 a.m.
Alycia shrouded in green color powder at the Color Run…
The hubs Whatsapped me this picture of Alycia and her friend having breakfast at Kenny Hills Bakers after the run while I was still in church…
And I had a good workout cleaning the bathroom and house floors after Alycia and her friend stepped inside after their run. The floors had red powder everywhere. I must have mopped the floors 10 times to remove all the stains while the big girl had her siesta in her comfy bed.
After four rounds cleaning the floor, the wet floor wipe was still this dirty.
I don’t need proper exercise in proper sports attire on Sundays and yet I can burn over 200 calories just by cleaning our 1500 square feet condo in my jammies. Did you know that when you mop the floor you can burn about 240 calories per hour?
A 150 pound person can burn around 170 calories per hour doing light cleaning (dusting, straightening up, etc). Tougher jobs like scrubbing and cleaning accumulated dirt and grime can burn up to 190 calories per hour. Now isn’t this a good reason for you to mop and scrub your bathroom with more enthusiasm now? The more you sweat the better. I hope you’ll look at house chores in a different light now 😉
