Another wild and crazy work day has come and gone. Yesterday I felt like I accomplished a lot. Today I felt like I didn’t finish a single project that I started.It was just one of those days where someone was needing something every five minutes. Then I’d find myself wondering what I’d been doing before I had to go show this person how to do something, or that person where something was, or answer a phone call about an application…and so on and so on all day long. But the day is over, I did the best that I could, and that’s just going to have to be good enough.
I was much more successful with my eating than I was with getting any work done. Once again, I totally followed my eating plan, didn’t eat any candy or anything from the vending machine, and didn’t have a soda of any kind. And no headaches from caffeine withdrawal. Of course, having iced tea helps with that. I read a fabulous blog about how the sweetener in diet soft drinks can cause symptoms similar to MS and lupus (there’s a link to it on my previous blog)…now if that’s not enough to scare me and keep me from drinking a diet Pepsi, I don’t know what will be. I pretty much ate the same things that I ate yesterday. I do that frequently. I know all the experts say to vary your diet, but when you live by yourself, it’s hard to cook just enough for one meal. So I always have leftovers to take to work for a few days. I don’t mind, it makes meal prep quick and easy.
I walked for 45 minutes today, no strength training. But I did do a lot of ladder climbing once again. See, there are health advantages to my job. Yes, I know, the stress is a disadvantage, but I think I’ve been doing a pretty good job of coping with it lately. At least I haven’t been using food to relieve the stress. Now there’s some progress! Speaking of progress, I forgot to mention that I lost another pound last week…total of 13 pounds dropped since I’ve been doing this little fitness blog.
I do a lot of walking, lifting, and ladder climbing for my job. I tend to view it as extra exercise, not my real workout. What kind of exercise do you get in your every day life…exercise that most people don’t think about when they think of exercise?
