Sneaking in the exercise, I have lost 5 pounds
Friday, March 08, 2013
I wish I had lost 8 by now, because I am behind my goal, but it's a start. I actually gained two pounds last week (anniversary week plus two exams I wasn't ready for without really hitting the books meant I spent a lot of time on my rear) so that didn't help.
I am finding, however, that my need to sneak in a little exercise has made me a much nicer person... at least since I have a pedometer! Someone says they forgot something or need something and guess who pipes up that they'll get it? Yep, me! All those little jaunts down the hall or across the room are adding up. I logged over 6,000 steps at school yesterday while I was supposed to be sitting on my rear tutoring other students. And besides that, everyone thought I was a total sweetheart!
The other thing I am doing, although I don't think it has anything to do with weight loss, is a lot of squats, lunges and calf raises. I can sneak them in here and there when no one is in the room. Since I'm standing up, if I hear someone coming, I can very quickly go back to a perfectly normal position... not like if I were lying on the floor doing pushups. If someone came in and saw me attempting to do them, they'd probably run for the defibrillator!
