So this past week I have made it my choice to be a little more active and attempt this fad called a “healthy lifestyle”. This has been surprisingly easy cause watching what I eat is already something I do. I already eat a lot of veggies and drink tons of water so the only thing left to adjust was to only one plate and not go back to the counter for seconds. Also if you eat light for lunch you can eat a little heavier for dinner. These are the rules I now live by.
This new lifestyle has changed a lot of different things in my life. Now that I am more active my back does not hurt anymore. This is because during my breaks and lunches at work I go walking around my building. It gets me outside and away from my desk. Everyone needs fresh air once in a while. Since straining my lumbar muscle a few weeks ago, its been very hard to just sit around and wait for it to heal and muscle relaxers make me too loopy so I read that being a little more active can help defer back pain. So far this article was right.
Here is my schedule for my new lifestyle.
5:30 AM -Wake up
5:31-6:30 AM- Get dressed, make lunch, make coffee, start crock pot dinner
6:30 AM- Leave for work
7:23 AM- Arrive at work and have breakfast
8:00 AM- Work
10:00 – 10:15 AM- Break time! Walk around building
10:15 to 12:00 PM- Work
12:00 PM- Eat prepared lunch which is always a salad.
1:00 PM- Lunch time! Walk around the building
1:30- 3:00 PM- Work
3:00- 3:15 PM- Break time! Walk around the building
4:30 PM- Time to head home
5;30 PM- Arrive at home, feed and get K-Dub ready to get into the bed before 7.
6:30- 7:30 PM- Gym time
7:30 PM- Dinner and shower
8:00 PM- TV and talk to the wife.
10:00 PM- Bedtime
That is the new routine at the FUN house. As you can see I am trying my hardest to stay active. The last change is that my wife is very supportive of what I am trying to do. She knows that the better I feel and look the more she can rip the benefits from it. Thats right, She can’t keep her hands off me. I would be lying if I said I was not enjoying it cause I am a guy first of all and second I am madly in love with my wife. In a marriage sometimes you need to switch things up to keep things interesting with you partner. Anyways, so now that I am working on myself, I could always use some tips so please fee free to comment below.
