Living Longer by Finding More Time to Live!
Saturday, December 29, 2012
The SparkCoach assignment today was to think about how you waste time and ways to make better use of that time. What a great video this morning. I always think about how busy I am and how I don't have time to exercise or track my intake but I seem to always find time to watch my favorite shows on TV or surf the web.
I also need to find time to keep up my writing. I like to write short stories, but I'm also working on a novel. The only problem is I'm always so tired at the end of the day that I, more often than not, say "Eh, I'll double up tomorrow." By now I could have finished the novel, lost 80 lbs and still have had plenty of time to track calories and blog.
My main culprit is watching TV when I get home at night. My son moved my treadmill into the living room last week but it's facing the wall. Today I will turn it around so I can watch TV while I walk.
Along the same lines, I'm going to try to rig up a board or something across the handles on the treadmill so I can surf the web and write while I'm walking. Even if I have to walk really slowly, it's better than laying on the chaise lounge.
At work I rarely take a break at all, but I intend to start walking up and down the four flights of stairs in my building twice a day. It will be great for me and will also get my blood flowing to clear my head. I can barely do it now, but I know it will get easier the more I do it.
I'll let y'all know how it all goes on my next blog.
