Steppin it up this week

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

For someone who is 23, I lead a pretty slow lifestyle emoticon
I wake up in the morning, do some school work (which I am normally sitting, but have been either sitting on my stability ball or standing) then go to the gym for 1.5-2 hours, then shower, then nap (cannot function without laying down for 45 min so this is not leaving my schedule) then I sit in class for 3 hours, get home at 9 pm.

My weight loss was most prominent when I was working out, going to class, then working in a shoe store for 20 hours a week. That was an extra 20 hours of moving boxes, walking around, squatting to clean things up, etc. That extra 20 hours is gone cause I quit cause I am in grad school now and that demands much more of my attention emoticon

So, I want to start "making up" for these extra hours I used to spend moving around and on my feet. Am I going to get to an extra 20 hours a week of moving? Probably not right away but this is something I can work towards after I graduate in June.

SOOOO in the meantime, I am trying to add in 30 more minutes of exercise in daily. This is not an additional 30 minutes at the gym (cause 2.5 hours at the gym? I would quit that real quick.) Instead, when I first wake up in the morning, even before my coffee, I am doing either Jillian's 6 week 6 pack video or Yoga Meltdown. (You don't understand, I usually do NOTHING before coffee.)

I am 3 days in to adding this extra push to lose the blah around my belly. Hopefully, I can continue this.

On another note, I am going to visit the boy toy in NYC this weekend for Valentines Day sooo there will be wine, chocolate, and probably Italian food emoticon . I will make him walk around Central Park with me a few times.
