EclecticMamma's Patent-Pending DIYer's Weekend Workout Routine

I'm trying to get back into being more healthy, etc, but one thing I wasn't expecting was this weekend's workout routine! My legs and arm are definitely reminding me about the activity I did over the weekend! To try it yourself, all you have to do is follow these easy steps…

Day One

  1. Buy the $1 spray paint that has a difficult trigger/not reliable spray.
  2. Spray paint two cardboard boxes and a plastic lid at dusk/night, making sure you spend most of your spraying time in a crouch position. When it gets too dark, do this all while holding a 5 pound flashlight.
  3. Insanity Version: Do lunges as you're circling the boxes. Don't worry, it's dark. Nobody can see you.

Day Two

  1. Saw several inches off of 17 paint stirring sticks—quickly, because you only have half an hour to do so. Sand and wipe down the ends of all the sticks.
  2. Spray paint the sticks, in a crouch because it's getting pretty windy and you need to keep the nozzle closer to the wood.
  3. Eat cookies.

Day Three

  1. Reap the benefits of being sore!

Disclaimer: Though I majored in Exercise Science, I don't exercise. Yeah, I tried last year, and I keep telling myself I should get back into it… But I don't. However, I do think that I'm funny. And if I did lunges around cardboard boxes, not only would I never tell anyone, but it would just make me funnier. As in, funny-looking.
