Does it have to be money OR my life??

Monday, February 04, 2013

In my last post I was ecstatic at how well I was doing with fitness minutes.

Now I'm afraid to look, because this:

Is the reality of a desk job and 2 1/2 hours of driving.

    Yep, that's about what mine looks like too! I sneak in little extras here and there (squats in the restroom, afternoon walk, etc) that don't show up on my fitbit.

    You can handle this. You will figure things out.

    I feel ya!! Don't have the 2.5 hour drive, but have a desk job!! I guess we just have work in a few minutes here and there. I have been trying to work in time every two hours...The smokers get to go out every two hours (and they count down the minutes), but I just can't seem to get out of the chair to walk....Hang in there and one step at a time emoticon

    Just do the best that you can. Sneak in exercise whenever you can, even if it's only a minute or two. That's better than nothing. I have a desk job, too. I make sure I get up about every 30 minutes & make my rounds to check on the people I support.

    I walk for 20-30 minutes at lunch time & go to the gym most nights after work.

    You'll figure out a way. Hang in there!! emoticon

    Hard....But you can do exercises in lunch break/tea break. Desk exercises and things like calf raises when waiting at the photocopy machine/coffee-tea place etc etc...

    Don't worry Michelle... you'll find your groove and work out a routine that works. Hang in there!
