Well I feel like crap lately and I know why. I sit around all day. When I’m at work, I’m sitting. When I’m done work I’m watching the kids, while sitting. When we go somewhere, I’m sitting. Lots of that.
So what I did is I bought a Heart Rate Monitor and I decided I’m going to do 30 minutes of activity every morning when the baby wakes up. I don’t know why, but I don’t like jogging without the stroller in front of me. I feel naked.
Now I could have just started doing this a while ago, but I bought a gadget. That’s because 1) I like gadgets and 2) it forces me to push myself more.
I tried it out, and it was actually pretty great. I found an app on my phone to tell me my target heart rate range, and I basically jogged when my heart rate was getting low and walked when I was at the top of the range.
As I become more fit it will become harder to stay in that range so I’ll have to move more. Which is nice that it will just gradually happen as I get more fit, and I don’t have to remember anything other than stay in that range.
I’m hoping this will work, because these past few days have been just bad. Now I’m not going to be like Jon and start a separate blog about it so you’ll have to just hear about it here!
