The SparkCoach assignment today was to think about how you waste time and ways to make better use of that time. What a great video this morning. I always think about how busy I am and how I don't have time to exercise or track my intake but I seem to always find time to watch my favorite shows on TV or surf the web.
I also need to find time to keep up my writing. I like to write short stories, but I'm also working on a novel. The only problem is I'm always so tired at the end of the day that I, more often than not, say "Eh, I'll double up tomorrow." By now I could have finished the novel, lost 80 lbs and still have had plenty of time to track calories and blog.
My main culprit is watching TV when I get home at night. My son moved my treadmill into the living room last week but it's facing the wall. Today I will turn it around so I can watch TV while I walk.
Along the same lines, I'm going to try to rig up a board or something across the handles on the treadmill so I can surf the web and write while I'm walking. Even if I have to walk really slowly, it's better than laying on the chaise lounge.
At work I rarely take a break at all, but I intend to start walking up and down the four flights of stairs in my building twice a day. It will be great for me and will also get my blood flowing to clear my head. I can barely do it now, but I know it will get easier the more I do it.
I'll let y'all know how it all goes on my next blog.
