I think I'm starting to get the hang of this...

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

I'm feeling really good! Yesterday as soon as I finished my blog post, my boyfriend/workout partner went back to sleep so I didn't do my workout DVD before work. When I finally came home from work the boyfriend, roommate, and I decided that I had 3 hours after dinner before I had to get to bed (I'm working an early shift today). We quickly put away the dinner dishes and went for a half hour walk outside. We knew that we wouldn't be able to fit in a whole walk, but I love that we've identified "routes," both long and short for when we have time to do a full walk or when we have to take an abbreviated walk. Plus our walk ends with stairs so there's a tiny bit of cardio too, since I race my boyfriend up the stairs to go home (and always win!)

While we cooled down from the walk, my boyfriend split our most recent grocery bill and I researched haircuts (getting my haircut today). When that was done, we finally did our Jillian Michaels DVD, then took a quick shower and watched an episode of Supernatural with our roommate before going to bed.

So to recap, instead of giving up due to the time constraints, in 3 hours I:
- Went for a 30 minute walk
- Researched a haircut for today
- Completed a 30 minute workout DVD
- Showered
- Watched tv with my roommates

When I came home, my fitbit said that I had walked a little over 2,000 steps. By the time I went to bed, it said that I had walked a little over 7,000 steps!! I'm feeling very accomplished emoticon

    Good job! It's nice to see someone not giving in to circumstance when it comes to working out. To many times I have given up because of that. Keep it up so I can know that it can be done lol!
