A workout, in parts

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

I did pretty great working out last week, but not so great with eating. As a result the scale is still stuck. This week I'm going to keep the exercise going and be more careful with the eating.

Yesterday I managed to sneak my workout into my work day. I tend to avoid working out at work (even though we have a room) because I don't want to get sweaty and have to change or take a faux shower. So usually if I do plan to work out at work, I do it at the end of the day, and by then I'm trying to catch up for the next day and it doesn't happen.

So I broke my workout into three intervals. First I did five minutes when I was walking by the room; I stopped in and did the elliptical. Then I went back and did 7 minutes later. Then toward the end of the day I did 8, for a total of 20. It may not be as good as a full workout all at once, but it beats nothing, and I didn't get sweaty (at lesat not enough to feel like I needed to shower or go home).

I can see this working for days when I'm going to be getting home late and wouldn't otherwise have time to work out at home.

In other news I just can't wait for the temperature to go back up so I can get back to running outside.

    Good job! I work out about 20 minutes a day at work too. Mostly to stop sitting still and be so sedentary. Ive heard that sometimes, our bodies and minds can't handle the change of eating right AND working out all at once. So if you do one, cut yourself some slack that the other is coming. You will get there!
