Did a whole route today. Then I came home and died 😥

I’ve been neglecting my tumblr! Work is going good, but it definitely is exhausting. It’s great to be able to workout while working though.
Usually I do 6 to 9 miles a day of walking. And it’s a fast walk too. You only have so much time to deliver the mail you have. They want you to be as fast as possible. I didn’t think there was so much to delivering mail, but it’s a lot to take in. I do really enjoy it, but I can’t wait until my body gets over this sore phase! Then I hope to be able to incorporate some kind of lifting regimen since I get all my cardio at work. With all this walking I’m hoping for some awesome legs!
So we walked a portion of a route today. She said it was probably a quarter of her normal route.
It was over 3 miles of walking. I almost was at my 10,000 steps and that’s just a portion of her route. How awesome is that! It’s like getting paid for exercise. I don’t know if I’ll even run if I’m walking that many miles a day.
It’s definitely going to be a learning experience. It’s not easy and when winter comes it’s going to be a smack in the face. I’m still excited though and I hope I can do well. It’s a great career to get into and it was quite a process to get the job. Hopefully in a year or two I’ll be able to get a regular position.
This week has been quite overwhelming though. We learned so much stuff that I’m still not sure I even understand lol. I’m ready for my Sunday off!
I made a chicken alfredo bake for dinner. Not the greatest dish ever. For some reason the chicken was very mushy. Everything else tasted okay though. Only 9 points for a serving too. I think next time I might just do it with the cheese and sauce.
Also, I passed my driving test! So I think I’m all good now except for carrier training. I’m really excited…and a bit nervous! My brother has been a carrier for a long time and really loves it. Plus the pay is pretty good. And once I’m able to get into a career postion, I hear the benefits are great too. Lots of walking as well, so that will be awesome. My brother told me he walks almost 5 miles a day. I would love that. I miss be able to move around at work. My last job was at a small office, so there wasn’t a lot of walking around. Not sure what my schedule is like for the next week yet, but I have a academy training in the morning. 7am, bright and early. That might take some getting used to.
I love fall
Made some hot chocolate and warmed up a cinnamon fiber one bar. Prefect at the end of the day and only 4 points!
