Ugh. Life gets in the way.

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

So yesterday's plan to workout went out the window. I worked longer and harder than I thought I would have to, so that was part of it. I'm hopeful that the project I'm working on will have high returns when it's done, but it's also taking up more time than I thought it would.

This morning, I was up at 5 to start working on it again. I'll be done with work stuff around noon, but then I have to work on homework until I leave for class at 4:00. Class until 8:30p doesn't leave time for a trip to the river (boo), but I can get myself to the gym after class. The goal today is just to get there and do SOMETHING. That means one round of squats or 10 minutes on the erg...just SOMETHING. No beating myself up if it's only a little bit - I just need to commit to something and make it happen.

    I keep trying to find reasons to get OUT of the house these days. :) I'm doing a lot of working-from-home and it's part of what keeps me so sedentary. When I go to work, I'm on a big-ish college campus, so I get in a half mile of walking just going from my parking space to my building...and there's usually an excuse to walk another few blocks to talk to a colleague in another building on most days.

But yesterday, your thought on just MOVING got me up and chasing my dog all over the house. She loves to play "Chase me!" and then turn around, fall on her back, and get belly rubs for 10 seconds, then bound up and start it all over. So not only did I get some movement in, your words helped Ms. Eleanor Rigby have a funtastic afternoon!

    I found just 10 minutes of even dancing around the house is beneficial! Anything you do that gets you moving!
