Catching up with the team...

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

I'm glad to be part of the Starfish team, and working at contributing as we go along. I've been making it quick though, as the last month has involved starting a new job after being laid off a full year. I'm focusing on getting in a good rhythm with a different schedule, and working 6 days some weeks. I've mapped out a walking route at a park near work where I can get a 20 minute walk on my lunch break most days, and climb 2 sets of stairs 2-3 times each workday also. It is a sedentary job, so I really need to move on breaks! I also am taking healthy lunch and snacks to work, and eating small meals throughout the day, along with water and tea. I'm taking my supplements daily, and working on getting more sleep which has been a challenge for a long time. I tend to get 6-6.5 hours, then wake up, even though I need 7-8. I'm hoping the exercise and regular routine will help me get there. I'm tired most of the time, so sometimes I don't make it to log and blog as much as I would like to, but I'm always thinking of all my Spark friends and love reading your blogs too. My blog from the Fall challenge is still relevant for me also, so I reread things to remind myself.

    Congratulations on the new job and discovering how to fit your exercise into the day. Change, even when it's good, can be scary. Great job!
    Also, thanks for your comments on my blog!

    Congrats on the job!!! It sounds like you are being pro-active with diet and exercise instead of being re-active. Great planning!

    Good for you - I need to find more excuses to move at my sedentary job, too!

    Me four. This is a great goal! I really need to move more. I can't wait for nice weather so I can walk outside again.

    I also have a sedentary job, and that does make it harder to exercise. I found a friend at work who is walking with me on our breaks.
