I did it!
Friday, March 29, 2013
So, I had talked about adding some movement here in there to the week. Just anything to get used to moving more. Maybe walk up the stairs to work or around the block at lunch, a walk at home with the little one. I forgot to take the stairs yesterday :( and didn't do much of anything since I was recovering from a 2 mile walk/jog the day before.
Then this morning, got to work and was about to push the elevator button when... wouldn't ya know it.. The door to the stairwell was wide open. A sign perhaps? Since the door is to remain shut at all times? I accepted that sign! And I walked up the stairs to the 8th floor! That's right, walked all the up to the penthouse. I started out at almost a jug. But, by the 4th floor, I suddenly seemed to be carrying sacks of potatoes and my legs were weighted with.. Well, I don't knowwith what, but they seemed to double in weight.. LOL Needless to say, the other half of the flights were taken a little slower. But, they were walked nonetheless.
Luckily, I am one of the only people here at 6:40 a.m. so I didn't have to worry about anyone thinking I was having a heart attack while slumping down the hall and breathing like a zombie!
