It's been almost a year since I publicly posted that I was ready to lose weight. And in that time I have managed to ... add "Eat to Live" to my wish list. I've also bought about 10 different books from Amazon but not that one (Lazy 1: Me 0) I've also gained 5-10 lbs depending on the time of the month (ladies, can I get an "Amen"?).
I know a HUGE contributing factor is that I am a desk jockey. When I ran a daycare we got out everyday, even during the rainy season (ok, maybe not, but I know I didn't keep 8 kids cooped up inside my house and I remember washing a lot of towels...) ... I digress, I started gaining weight like mad when I closed my daycare and started working a desk job again. I have a 90-120 minute commute everyday, I work 8-10 hours per day (yay for OT at the moment) and I like my sleep. I don't get enough as it is. My mother thinks I don't eat enough because basically I only eat lunch (which I work through). Too tired for dinner by the time I get home 3 days out of 5.
Conclusion - I either need more time management skills, less sleep, or I am just downright lazy.
So, the question is (since I don't want to face the fact that I am lazy) - how/when do I fit in some decent exercise? Time management gurus, I am asking for help.
Thanks to @CTK1 who emailed me some info, that, if it isn't going to help me lose weight, has, in the last two days, helped my mood and focus. Which in turn is helping me to stay motivated past talking about it.
And to @Oakmonster for reminding me about stairs. There are 21 flights here. I think I will start with 4. On a day when I am not wearing heels and/or actually remember to bring my sneaks. Yesterday I did 4, all going down, but still better than taking the elevator, right?
I wish I could afford the gym again. Josh has been wanting to go and I would much rather zone out and get 30 minutes in on an elliptical (oh how I hate them - http://www.annetteholland.com/2005/11/im-sweating-my-hair-is-sweating-im.html) or treadmill on a regular basis than try to fit it in randomly throughout the week.
One day at a time, right?
