I Am Out of Shape

I had a very intense work week last week to say the least. I inadvertently found myself doing a week's worth of work in the space of three days. I got it done, because I'm awesome like that, but it was seriously draining. For once I actually did take the weekend to myself and one thing it showed me is that I'm really out of shape.

It's not so much that I'm out of shape either, it's also that I'm heavier. So I can really feel the extra weight pulling me down when I'm trying to walk. It makes it harder to move around. I have a hard enough time finding the time to move around as it is; I don't need the actual process itself to be rendered more difficult. But that's life sometimes.

I also know that if I was in better shape I would be better able to handle all this extra work. I'd have more energy to just get stuff done and come out on top. So I should do it for the sake of my work as well as for my health.

It really is a matter of finding the time though. With my sleep schedule, combined with how much I work, I don't finish working until around 8, 9, or even 10PM sometimes. I could go on a walk part way through my day, which is what I used to do, but then I'm just extending my work day.

I need to find something. If only typing burned calories.

  1. Maybe you could make the walk a part of your daily schedule An important part

  2. I introduced cycling into my day as my commute method. I know working from home makes it difficult but if you introduce something into your routine then it becomes just that... routine.

  3. I have somehow managed to make exercising part of my daily schedule, but there's still that tendency to get lazy with it. To do the least I can.

    Especially if I'm working a lot because I can rationalize it - "Hey! Working is a positive thing!"

    Good luck finding a way to do both.
