Compensating for my desk job.

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

I'm feeling better today. I went to the gym last night after training the newbs. I got over 10,000 steps so take that!

My plan to compensate for my sedentary desk job is to run laps around the giant table in the training room during my 15 minute breaks. Well, walking for now until my knee gets a little better. But i'm confident that just that little extra will add up. I already have 4297 steps today, and I still have a whole 2 hour derby practice to skate through.

Good thing because I may have indulged in a double portion of brie at lunch. Damn stinky cheese, I love you so!!!!

    I feel for ya- for the sedentary job and the stinky cheese. Ahhh, grilled brie with granny smith apple slices on sourdough. We can do it. Get those steps! (and RPMs, you rock!)

    I usually park a mile away from work (started because it's free parking for city employees but it's ended up being a nice way to start and end my work day), walk on my lunch, and have a little peddle machine thing under my desk that I do, mindlessly, for an hour a day. This week, for kicks, I've been using my Polar HRM to track how many calories I'm burning during each activity on top of my derby wRECk league on Wednesday nights and the C25K program I've been working on and I've burned 3642 calories so far this week. Uh, WTF? Turns out maybe my weight loss had stalled for a month because I wasn't eating enough every day. Oops! At least being super active on Spark for the past two weeks has my loss kicked back into gear. Phew.

    Ramble, ramble. Point being, a little activity here and there can really add up to a lot of calories burned, fast. Wee!

    Thank for sharing your story, I have a set down job to and every hour I get up and go for a 10 minute walk up and down the hallway and up and down the stairs. And I take a 30 minute walk during my lunch. emoticon emoticon emoticon
