New Trick

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

So, to make a great use of my time and to add some movement to my sedentary day (8 hrs in front of a computer) I take advantage of my bathroom trips LOL, which are quite a few due to drinking green tea all day. Anyway, I do at least 15 squats in the bathroom each time. That adds to about 60 squats a day!!! Oh, while I wait for my coffee to brew I would do some arm work as well. I just started this practice this week...let's see if see any results... emoticon

    You should definitely see some progress!! That's a great way to start! When I first started, I'd do 10 sit-ups every time I entered the bathroom...which was really rough when getting ready to go out somewhere, I'll tell!

I have a pretty sedentary job, as well, and I try to take advantage of lulls by doing push-ups against the wall or my desk, or doing seated knee pull-ups in my chair... I've done squats, too, and rear leg extensions...
Great job on the green tea! I've tried homemade iced green tea, chamomile, and rooibos, and they're all great alternatives to (boring) water!!

Keep up the great work--and keep thinking outside the box!!
