It’s Wednesday! We’re halfway through the week! Unfortunately, I woke up this morning with a cold, so I’m not feeling the greatest.
I’m finally out of Kashi¬†oatmeal, so this morning for breakfast, I had a Van’s waffle topped with blueberries and peanut butter and some Honeycrisp apple slices.
- 1.12 miles treadmill
- BodyPump – 60 minutes
Total Pile on the Miles: 21.32 miles
After I got this little guy on the bus, I went to the gym.
Since I wasn’t feeling the greatest, I just walked a little over a mile on the treadmill before going to BodyPump. Every mile counts! I figure one mile is better than no miles.
Later in the day, I got¬†this email about why you should exercise that I thought was interesting.
According to this email, the average person only works out two times a week. I understand that sometimes life gets busy with work, kids, school, life, etc. But I also feel that making time to workout can only benefit you. No one ever says, man, I really regret that workout. It’s making my heart all healthy and helping me to live longer. What a bummer.
I think any amount of exercise can benefit you. You can exercise for 10 minutes three times a day if you can’t workout 30 minutes at once. There are sneaky ways to get exercise in your daily routine – take the stairs, park in the farthest parking spot and walk, vacuum the house.
My sister in law’s place of employment has a gym. So, during her lunch break, she works out in the gym. She doesn’t have to travel away from the building to work out, so it’s convenient. Plus, it doesn’t take an hour to eat a sandwich. My brother’s work has a work station on a treadmill! How cool is that?! Of course, you have to be coordinated enough to walk and talk on the phone at the same time, but I love how businesses are seeing how important daily exercise is. (Plus, they probably want to keep their employees healthy so they don’t miss work.)
In other news, I have decided that I am pretty much addicted to Christmas. Danny knows the way to my heart and it’s not through diamonds or chocolate…it’s through Christmas decorations!
He brought me home this moose mailbox cover from the store yesterday. How super cute is it?! I just look at all my Christmas decorations as an investment in the future. After this year, I probably won’t ever have to buy another Christmas decoration. I love Christmas the way my dad loves Halloween.
And in my defense, I haven’t put up one Christmas decoration yet. I do wait until the day after Thanksgiving. Wait, I take that back – we did stick Christmas Mickey Mouse window clings to the window yesterday. But I just put those up because my niece loves Minnie and Mickey. I swear that’s the only decoration I have up so far!
We have a busy night tonight. Jacob has a community night for school, and Danny is helping my dad out with some stuff. I hope you all have a great night!
