Excuse me...I am trying to do my Sparktime you mind?

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

I had a Spark friend notice that I had not been online as much lately. Guilty as charged. I am sorry.

I do most of my online Sparking at work. It is approaching the busy time of year for us. I do the A/R and A/P for the world headquarters of a small construction company. So I don't have as much time as I did in the winter to Spark at work. After my kids are out of school in June, I will have even less time. I will just need to experiment with my schedule to find something that works for us. I will probably have to change my workout times as well. I don't want to neglect anyone. Including me.

I overheard one of my co-workers stating that there must be something medically wrong with me because I use the restroom so much. Um no, I use the restroom so much because I am drinking 10 cups of water a day! We should get Sparkpoints for every time we empty the bladder! By the way, sometimes I am in there doing squats or some other exercise. I don't think it is any different than the other employees going outside to smoke. At least I am doing something positive! Spark on! emoticon

    I thought I was the only one that does squats in the bathroom. After I'm done I do 25-50 squats, everytime I'm in there. Figured it was an easy way to spread out thigh exercises and a good way to remember :)

    Funny stuff - I like the analogy of how it's no different than someone taking a smoke break. Hear hear!

    LOL!!! I feel like I need to start wearing Depends or something. Now I need to start doing squats in there too. Very efficient, my friend.

    I'm a regular sparker from the office as well. It's practically my lunch break!

Keep up the great work!

    Don't forget to make time for you! If we don't take care of ourselves, we cannot take care of anyone else.

    shhh, I'm Sparking from work too, lol. Everytime someone walks past I switch to another screen emoticon

Kudos to you for getting your exercise on at work during your breaks...that should be more widely accepted than the smoke break anyway.

    Yep, someone should talk to Chris Downie about Bathroom Points, especially when you are 'Multi-Tasking' and making them Potty-Exercise Breaks!!

    I do squats and wall pushups in the restroom too! But only if no one else is in there. :)

    I love that! If people can use breaks to go out and smoke why can't we use breaks to get a little exersize in! Great idea!!

    Good for you. It's not easy to balance work, home, and let alone not neglect yourself. I so relate to bathroom thing. I will go to the farthest one from my classroom, just to get a little walking or dancing time. Have a wondrous Wednesday!

  I hear you about the bathroom issue. I'm just glad since my desk moved it's now closer. That's awesome about doing the exercises in the bathroom. Now that I actually take a lunch again - I want to bring in one of my resistance bands to exercise @ my desk - I can credit you with part of that motivation!
