Image via WikipediaI work at a desk, by a phone, near the tv. I listen to music in the background most of the day, sitting at my computer and talking on the phone. Once and awhile I get up and walk to the bathroom or the kitchen. Sometimes I go outside and see that everything is ok on the farm.
I don't exercise enough. I know that in my head. I'm a little adverse to the word exercise frankly. It sounds too much like work. There's no immediate gratification in it. Boring.
This week I am helping my husband at his job. He's a merchandiser. We are doing a freshness audit of beverages. In great big stores like Walmart and Meijer. We have to find every single Coke and Pepsi product in the store and write down information. We have to walk all over the place. For at least 8 hours a day. Exercise.
I'm tired. Out of shape. Have sore muscles. There is some light at the end of the tunnel. I have slept really good this week. I'm spending some serious one on one time with the hubby. My leg muscles are starting to tone up (yeah, in three days).
I'm working on my 2010 plan. There was no exercise in the plan. That is changing. I ought to be able to dedicate one hour a day to my health. Now I'm looking for ideas on how to make exercise fun. I do like walking - and that will be on the plan starting in spring. Winter in Iowa on the farm is brutal - there are no leisurely walks. There's no mall I can go to that is closer than 40 miles away. A treadmill is not on my list of things to buy right away.
