Back to the under desk peddler today to burn off some calories during a webinar. I love how fast the workout time goes when I’m focused on work. Sometimes, especially in the last 5 minutes, a workout seems eternal.
One thing that annoys me is not getting my heart rate higher. I have the resistance at the highest setting and somehow, it’s not enough. My bike at home with the little desk on it has MUCH more resistance. My thighs feel like they got a workout but it’s way more intense than the bike at work.
But anything is better than just sitting and doing nothing.
Since I had a webinar, it was looking like I was going to be sitting for way too much of my day. So, while watching a presentation that will probably break through my work budget for graphic novels, I pulled out my Wirk under desk bike to get some exercise. It’s easy to just keep going and not focus on time while I’m watching the webinar.
And the bike didn’t hurt my back at all, thank goodness.
As for food, I’ve been trying to eat more salads and greens still. The electric lunch box I have at work is a LIFE SAVER when it comes to not only eating healthier (since the food is steamed) but cheaper since getting take out has been getting more expensive (while my income stagnates but I could go on for hours bitching about that). Eventually, I’ll take pictures of what I prep and how I cook at work and what I’ve had to adjust since being on Saxenda. It’s been an adjustment but I think I have a decent system that saves me time.
I also love the under desk bike because I can workout earlier in the day. Sometimes I dread the thought of working out after a stressful day and I just wanna destress and write.
I’ll also have a writing update soon. I’ve got a project to announce that’s almost done.
