Excess, Exercise, and Extra Hours

In the holiday season we all eat a few more treats.  Ok, maybe not everyone, but most of us!

I am a devote of the Glowing Green Smoothie, thanks to a former co-worker, but the rest of my meals are not as healthy and I have a very big sweet tooth!

Proud of the fact that I work out consistently year after year, with breaks only due to severe illness or injury, I feel healthy.  Then I spend a day with my young child.

He moves all day and trying to keep up with his idea of fun activity (battling with fake swords, playing Kinect, or just running around the yard) shows me just how out of shape I am.

The corporate work world is still.  Not a lot of movement - even on days when I am "running around a lot".  That means running to a meeting sitting there for an hour and then going to the next meeting and sitting for an hour, then sitting doing email......see a patten?

Even those of us who try to eat right (most of the time) and exercise are ignoring the fact that we sit so many hours of the day.  The irony that I am sitting here BLOGGING about this is not lost on me, btw.

I have friends who have timers on their iphones that tell them to get up and stretch.  (I used to giggle to myself when they would get up from a meeting and move around.)  Others who schedule a "lap" around the building to keep from getting stiff might be on to something.   I think I would like the treadmill desks if that ever came to EMC I would love to try it.  In the mean time, I think I found a New Years Resolution and that is to simply move more.

Luckily I have great friends at the office who might be willing to walk around for part of our conversations in the office and I have a little one at home who will always be willing to play a physical game with me.

Happy Holidays!  I wish you good health in 2013!!
