What can I say?

Thursday, May 13, 2010

I knew I was busy this year. But you don't know the half of it.

I wrote my schedule down on a piece of paper. Just for Today, Thursday and Friday this week.

I have so much going on, I don't have time to do the dishes or the laundry until Saturday and that is my only "day of rest".

I have been getting up at 6:30 every morning to be off and running by 8 with my daughter. Then, I go to work. By the time work is over, my evening schedule kicks in and I am off and running again.

Most of my running is done by car this week because of how wet and cold it has become and because of how far I have to go; thirty to forty miles one way. How am I exercising this way? I am not doing so hot with it. How am I eating mindfully? That is even worse.

I am using the computer nights because during the day, there is just too much to do. My job is only temporary and so this rush will be over in a couple of weeks, but until then am I sabotaging myself....DEFINITELY.

I am looking at articles and such to give advice on how to spend 10 minutes at a time exercising. I have seen where if I do ten minutes several times a day, I will get the same benefit as doing a full thirty minute workout without the aches and pains accompanying. This is something I have been looking at anyway because of the arthritis, but now I am really searching for exercises I can do while driving down the road. I know there are some, I just haven't found the right keywords.

    I do BUTT clenches in time to the music, I also do FLAMINGO dancing Arm moves which is mostly wrist circles but it has tones my arms up tremendoulsy. Itoo travel long distances to work so I get in a half hour exercise each way. I have also done arm /wrist exercise using 2 pound wts. of course I only do one arm at a time because I am driving. You can do deep breathing , shoulder shrugs. It has helped me to feel good about not having time to exercise too (I work 80 hours a week with only one day off) and check out the exercises on SPARK they always have great ideas. I do boxing circles at the stop lights(like I am hitting a punching bag going in a circle and I do it fast)It makes the stop lights go faster too, ha ha
