I Am a Working Mom

Want to be in top physical condition? Forget the gym-work at Lowe's.
I work in the paint department at Lowe's. I've never had such big guns in my life. Really, curling barbells every day for 30 minutes would produce a mere fraction of the musculature that I comes from lifting 1 gallon paint cans repeatedly throughout the day.
For lower body exercise there's lifting 5 gallon buckets of paint. There's also climbing ladders, squatting, streching, and running around the floor to assist the myraid of customers that cross my path each day.
Abs, back, shoulders, everything is covered in this intensive full-body workout. Even the mind does sprints with the popourri of daily challenges.
And no fancy workout clothes required here folks. Just throw on an old pair of jeans and a t-shirt, and the fine folks at Lowe's will supply you with a dandy red vest.
Wear study shoes or you'll destroy your feet!
