The Blue Box's Journal, 06 May 2013

Today we move to summer hours. That means Monday-Thursday sitting in an office from 8:00am-5:30pm. Yuck! But then it's only 8:00am-11:30am on Fridays, so I guess it's worth it. Although I'm sure my doggie would say otherwise. :)

I've been trying to get up whenever I can to just stand or walk to the bathroom, because all this sitting is killing me. Ugh.

I was good and brought sunflower seeds and a granny smith apple to eat so I would not overeat as soon as I got home... Too bad I ate them about an hour earlier and am now hungry...

Oh well, pasta doesn't take that long to make. :D

I used to go for walks at my old jobs compound it helped but the sitting was the reason for the idle snacking.Those are just the hours that can ruin a diet working on something past normal lunch.The 15 minute breaks were 11 then1:30 for lunch and 3:oopm to go move around but there wasn't any place in walking distance to get anything healthy. Your advise for me was stand when I can and it has helped. If you have enough room in the ladies room try a few tai chi moves, I used to sneak a few for circulation.

I wish I had room in the ladies room; it is tiny! Maybe when it slows down I'll perform a few tai chi moves in the office. :) Any recommendations?

Maybe you could do some squats in the bathroom then? I couldn't agree more. I HATE sitting. Makes me want to sleep, a lot!

Thanks The candy fan, I'll look up some moves soon. iamachristianjesusfreak, what gets me is that I find myself slouching and then when I straighten up my back is yelling at me, saying noooo we weren't made for thissss!!! People might think I'm trying to force something out if I start doing squats in the bathroom! lol
