So as you know, I purchased a Fitbit last week and got an amazing deal on it! I have been paying attention to how many steps I take daily and am sure to hit at least my stair climb goal each day if nothing else! I have been better about logging my daily food into my fitness pal and the Fitbit site as well. I’m not perfect at it yet, but doing this is better than nothing.
I wore my Fitbit at my last job for several days. I always hit about the same amount of daily steps, which was just about my daily goal. On the weekends I have no problems exceeding my goals. This is my first week at my new job, and I am averaging about 4,000 less steps a day! I have even walked to lunch the last two days, which is about 1/2 mile each way. It is crazy how much getting up and walking across the building to the printer and to the accounting room added up before. Even though I consuming less calories this week by not having any snacks…I just don’t feel as good with less activity/movement. It’s time to get serious about fitting in work outs. I’m not going to see any results until I incorporate this into my daily life. How many times have I said I’m going to get serious, I’m not sure….but for real people! I work until 5:30-6:00 most night and don’t get home until 6:00-6:45, so working out after work isn’t really an option. I like to go to bed between 9:00-10:00 because I wake up at 5:00 am every morning and I like to come home, eat dinner, relax and spend time with my husband.
I want to get an elliptical machine for our house, start waking up at 4:30 am and getting in cardio 5 days a week that way. Until we can afford one, I’m going to have to so something else. I hate work out DVDs but I don’t know what other choice I have. Do any of you work out at home? What are you doing? I need some inspiration ASAP!
