Taking a little break at work to post a quick blog. It's been a busy weekend here, but I'm making myself take breaks. I just took a long walk to the exit door to the employee parking lot (opposite side of the facility than where I work). I was good and returned to work, but I also took a short trip up the stairs. I made it up 5 flights before coming down three to where I work. I might have been able to do a little more, but was worried about getting all sweaty at work.
My official exercise for the day is 20 minutes on the elliptical. I started off slow, but was able to increase the pace to my normal.
I forgot to mention another goal I'm working on. At home, I have the tendency to ask the kids to go get things for me, especially items from the basement. We have an extra refrigerator down there, and shelves full of food from Sam's/Costco. I've made it a goal to go get things myself, thus increasing the number of stairs I do in a day. Most days it works well. The day after I jogged last week, stairs were tough, but I did them anyway to try to work out all that lactic acid in my muscles.
I'm looking forward to another great week of workouts and eating veggies!!!
