My 5 minute Closet Intervals

Thursday, March 10, 2011

My job can get very boring!! I mean really really boring. I sit at my desk and stare and stare and stare at a computer screen for 8 hours a day. I know, not so unique. But I cannot stand sitting on my butt ALL DAY!!!!

About a month ago I joined the Virgin Health Miles through my health insurance and was sent this lovely pedometer that keeps track of my steps, mileage, weight and the time so I can see how sedintary I really am and so I can earn points towards gaining MONEY!!! Yes that's right money. For every 6000 points earned I get $25 towards anything I want. Yup awesome right?? But sitting at a desk all day doing nothing I wasn't getting the requisite 7000 step minimum in even with going to the gym.


So, I started by marching in place at my desk but people gave me funny looks and now I have a crush on my UPS man (such a cliche) and I don't want him to catch me so I found my closet!! Yes, my supply closet, the one place I cannot stand at work has become my secret workout room *giggle*

I love it! I do mini suicide sprints, I dance, I jump up and down simulating jumping rope, I do squats, pushups what I ever I want. It's amazing and noone suspects me when I'm not at my desk when the light is on in that room.

Now instead of P-A-T-H-E-T-I-C I feel S-U-C-C-E-S-S and E-N-E-R-G-E-T-I-C and F-I-T!!!!

So much better and now I'm racking up the steps. My best so far is 15,459 but I'm getting there and I cannot wait until the day I hit 20,000.
