Well I replaced the broken Dvd player on Monday. Went back to work after long school holiday on Tuesday and promised myself that I would do my walking/resistance Dvd every week day morning before work. Yesterday was not a problem. Did the 2mile/ 35 minutes with resistance, breakfast, shower and on to work. Yesterday we had a couple of lectures and as far as my job goes it was a fairly sedentary day.
Day2 this morning. Well last night I had a shockingly bad nights sleep. Got up and put my trainers on to do my dvd workout and Dave1961 my 'Bert' voice started up telling me that I couldn't do it without having had a good sleep. Give up now. Who works out before work anyhow? Well I did about 20 minutes. Walked 1 mile but Bert won the round saying not to do the 2nd mile with resistance. ... Mmmm
On to work. Well today I had to home visit some of the new kids. Was given a list of addresses and decided to walk between the addresses. I have walked 13.25 km and taken well over 18,800 steps. I walked over a railway bridge using the stairs 6 times, I took the stairs on all but the very last appointment in the flats (well it was on the 6th floor and my much younger colleague refused to walk up)
I am now totally exhausted and my feet are still tingling!. Kind of glad my Bert voice stopped me doing the extra mile with resistance first thing this morning! . But I think I have done good and am sure I'll sleep well tonight. My colleague who accompanied me is convinced that I am mad, but graciously walked with me even though she wanted to use the lifts all the time,, and the car most of the time .... feeling proud of myself! Yes 'Bert' I do need to do 2 miles with resistance tomorrow so Shut up!
I know I am out visiting all day again tomorrow and will probably do another crazy load of steps but it won't kill me and I can do it....urgh I can do it. I will do it and my ' Bert' won't stop me.....
