So I joined Shallee's new, exclusive, and incredibly easy to join club as a means to help writers remember that maintaining our physical health is super important. This couldn't have come at a better time. I've been shaking my head while on the scale, as of late, so kudos to Shallee for being inspired enough to know what some of us need to do. So this is a weekly thing, for Fridays, but I'm not posting on Fridays. Or every week. I'm a rebel like that.
But I will post if I've found something helpful that's worth sharing.
The kicker with me is that I'm a 10/4 guy. You know, ten hours a day, four days a week. Up by Six, bed by ten (for that all-important eight hours of sleep). Coupled with young children and other responibilites (such as writing and movie watching), it's tough finding ways to have a consistant workout (swimming is my first choice - great for cardio, easy on the knees). So what's an out-of-shape guy to do?
I found this amazing article from The Art of Manliness (these guys speak my language): The Desk Jockey Workout: 8 Ways to Stay in Shape at the Office. I've applied and changed a few things, but I'm amazed how well this is working. Even brought in a set of ten-pound weights. So there you have it. A little workout throughout the day boosts energy far better than those red drinks with a bull on the can.
If you work in an office, it might be worth your while to give these tips a shot. I did and I'm glad for it. I hope the scale agrees.
So, clubbies - what have you been doing to stay healthy? Any new tips this week? What's your preferred method of exercise?
I'm David, and you don't want to see me run ... trust me ...
