64 Days Left in 2013 - Not Sitting Around Much!

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Today I realized having my personal laptop on the treadmill keeps me from sitting around listening to CNN and vegging when I take a break AND my breaks are much shorter. I have been on my treadmill desk about 2 hours today, an hour in the morning and now. I miss the sound of CNN in the background, so tomorrow I will see if I can hook up a TV here.

Fitbit Step Stats

10/28 13,584
10/29 14,900 so far

In answer to some questions -

I try a new recipe every week, but I bought YES bought 2 new cookbooks this month. I find tons of recipes on the internet but when it's time to cook I need to stay in the kitchen and not play with my computer looking at recipes.

However yesterday I found 4 new recipes I am doing in the next week.

Seven Easy One-Pot Meals

Put all the ingredients together, bake, and then—oh, wait—you're done.

When I make/eat soup I am not tracking I am using mostly low carb veggies. Not cabbage soup, but a tasty veggie beef soup.

Thanks for the advice to go slow to warm up when I start in the morning. I will go at a slower, easier pace for the few minutes. I will get into stretching or yoga sometime in the future.

    You are doing great. I am still wondering how you don't fall off the treadmill while using your laptop??

    I really like using my slow cooker too. Quick to fix, walk away, and no big cleanup!

    Great idea. Once in a while when I've been lazy, I get on the elliptical and take it slow whole I read a book just to get off the couch!

Thanks for the link to the one-pot meals. I'll give them a try.

You are doing great!
