Walking to work is working

Friday, December 13, 2013

Intentional exercise is working for me! I've been walking to work pretty much every day and sometimes even walking home! The walk is an extra mile and a half to the transit center near my job. I already walk a mile and a half to my bus stop so this makes for 3 miles a day. Watching calories adds up to a powerful combination.

I've managed to not sneak weigh myself since Tuesday, and my regular weigh-in is tomorrow morning. Losing that second pound would be nice, but I agree with your comments and don't want to put too much stock in it. I'll be getting a tape measure tomorrow too and will begin waist measurements. I like having there be at least one element of my physical appearance that I can change. :-)

Gay bowling starts its Winter League the first Sunday in January - I'm gonna sign up with a team! I've never been in a bowling league before. This is light exercise, to be sure, but it's social, gets me out in my community and out of my apartment. Crucially, it helps with work/life balance. I just got weekends off instead of Sun/Mon, so that should open doors. There may be sports groups or other things I can do on Saturdays. By the way, I know that drinks and snacks while bowling can be a temptation, especially during the winter months. I don't drink, and I'm good at making healthy choices with snacks. A lot of us are in the same boat. This is not a league of 20-year-old modern dancers!

Thanks so much for your comments! I always look forward to reading them.
