The plan's pretty easy so far, at least 30 minutes walking during my lunch break at work, then on the weekends maybe some workout videos or housework

With a slightly early arrival of snow I put in plenty of time shoveling snow. After I finished mine and the neighbors on each side of me, I did the rest of the block and a bit around the corner. It felt great and I think I can continue walking (though much slower because of ice patches) most days until it snows again. According to my fitness tracker I burned 714 calories just shoveling snow yesterday!

A side note, I kind of love it when my fitness tracker says I'm burning too many calories. Yes, I use it as an excuse to munch a little before bed or have a glass of wine. Last night -- both, LOL.

I did about 8 min of cardio and 11 min of ST.

Still plugging away at it -- we are due for some snow so I did an extra mile when I got home from work tonight. With a 10 mile per week goal, I am at 9.2 miles for the week already, with three days left to go! I'm so psyched!

Found myself stuck on a plateau this week so I backed off a little on the intensity of the walking part and added stairs. A LOT of them. During breaks at work I would find excuses to walk the stairs. It seemed to give me a jolt. My body was getting too used to walking, even with the varied routes and adding hills.

These steps seem simple enough.

I plan to take the stairs more often at work and to take more opportunities to get up and move. I will park further away from the doors at places I shop and do business; something I usually do anyway. At work I will do mini-crunches in my chair and/or move my feet more often. I will also try to at least stand up a few times per shift and be more mindful of my posture. I used to have really superb posture but being embarrassed about my weight has gotten me in the habit of curling forward to kind of disguise the problem when I'm sitting.

I will also continue with my nearly daily walks, with the possible exception of Sunday, when I'm hosting a birthday party for my daughter. I suspect running up and down the stairs with last minute preparations and cleaning may keep my bases covered there. Or who knows? I may need a good, brisk walk to clear my head once all the teenagers have departed.
