  • No excuses

    Posted on Saturday, June 16, 2012

    I recently went back to work full-time.  I have mainly a sedentary desk job and add to that my 1 hour commute each way and I’m sitting for about 50 hours a week.

    So far I have managed to keep to my goal of exercising 3 times a week.  There really is no excuse for me NOT to exercise.  My new company will reimburse me up to $150 for joining a gym or taking fitness classes or even buying exercise equipment.  Plus where I work, within walking distance, there is an indoor pool, a running track, gym, and a cardio room that is FREE for me to use.

    My routine is as follows:  One day a week I work out after work at one of the places mentioned above, swimming, track, or the pool.  Another day after work I go for a walk or bike riding with my son.  And the third time I exercise, I take a fitness class such as Piloxing, Yoga, Zumba, or Barworks at the studio I recently joined.

    I feel it’s important to exercise especially since I spend so much time sitting.  Also by doing a variety of exercise activities, I don’t get bored and I really LOVE my group classes!!

    A coworker of mine joined me earlier this week at the gym and that was great!  I wish I could have someone join me all the time but it doesn’t always work out that way.  I just have to keep at it and hope I can continue working out three times a week.
