Like many, I have an office job that requires sitting at a desk for eight hours a day. Not great for weight loss. Luckily for me, my office building sits on a large campus that is 100% walkable. I decided that I don’t have an excuse for not getting any exercise during the day. I grabbed my shoes before I headed out the door this morning, determined to fit in a walk or two.
It was cold and windy, but I sucked it up and headed out for my walk around 1pm. I brought my ipod and earphones with me, which not only provided upbeat music to maintain a fast walking pace, but also shielded my ears from the piercing wind. Good move, Meg.
I figure I walked at least a mile, maybe a mile and a half. I need to remember to bring my pedometer with me tomorrow so that I can start tracking the number of steps I’m walking. Hopefully this will give me a more accurate picture of the distance.
Unless it’s pouring rain or there is a foot of snow on the ground (which I won’t rule out yet in Maryland), I’m committing to at least one walk a day while at work. I’m going to strive for two, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Hoping the extra energy boost helps me get through the 2 o’clock crash!
