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! 
08 May 13 by member: iamachristianjesusfreak I use this site, it really helps when sitting too long. One class for mostly seniors that gives me move fluid movements.

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
