YAY! 7777 steps today!

Saturday, September 17, 2011

So I got this new pedometer. It rocks. I enjoy the motivation to make the numbers go up. I had a long and yet still pleasant day at work today after which I worked out for an hour. I really didn't think this working out in the work gym thing would work out but it is doing nicely. Also I didn't think I could work out at night. I get out from work at 11:00 pm but that seems to be going ok too. I even spent most of the hour working out supporting my sad depressed friend by chatting with her on the phone. Mostly I listened because I was working hard but I heard her and commented at points which helped her vent.

I would say that September is going much better than August. I am not nearly as ill with my cough and I feel better overall. I am still not eating as well as I could be but gradually I am making the changes needed to lose weight and feel better.

I am trying hard to remember to relax and allow myself to make this my life, so not to rush. I have 70 some odd years to perfect eating right and working out and to accept myself even if I am not perfect. AH! Game on.

    It's good that you have exercise facilities available to you at work. That should make it easier to get in some exercise time.

    I ordered the Spark exercise starter set, even though I have one of the balls. I figured that I could find a use for it somewhere, maybe even take it to work to sit on in front of the computer. Anyway, the set has a pedometer, so I will see exactly how much I don't walk during the day. I may actually be pleasantly surprised, but I doubt it. It will give me a starting point for getting more steps in during the day.

    Boy, this thing is sluggish today. I have seen other people complain about Spark being slow, but this is the first time that I have noticed it. I can rarely outtype any thing, but today I am doing it and it is really bugging me.
