It’s not easy to always make time for myself. I have a full time job and on top of that, my commute ranges from 35 minutes to 1 hour one way so on top of spending 8 1/2 hours at work I’m also on the road for another 1 1/2 hours. Combine this with trying to get a full 8 hours of beauty sleep (some nights I stay up too late and suffer) and I’m left with 6 hours. I could do a lot in 6 hours if I really thought about it. So what am I doing with my 6 whole hours of free time? Ummmm.. at the moment, nothing I’m particularly proud of. Lets see, I stay in bed for an extra 30ish minutes checking YouTube and Instagram and I get an hour or two of geek time in at night. Where’s my exercise time? Oh that’s right, I don’t have time for that!?!?! Oh brain… what happened to you? Why must you fill my head with lies sometimes?
So… it dawned on me the other day that I have time in between my time. Huh? Wha? I had a brilliant idea that I could get a few extra steps on my 15 minute breaks. Why didn’t I think about that before? In the last few days, I’ve discovered that I can a) walk about 3/4 mile in my 15 minutes b) get my vitamin D dosage for the day c) find beautiful things to photograph d) and burn more calories! Yay! I’m a genius!
My next plan of attack, making time to get my ass to the gym. The scale and I haven’t been getting along very well. I’m thinking it’s a love/hate relationship. I’m pretty sure we would be best friends if I didn’t sabotage the relationship with all this extra sugar that I can’t stop craving. Go away cravings! I could also move my ass a little more often to burn off all the added sugar I seem to be inhaling lately. Can we say Cardio??
