I exercised on my lunch hour.
I've never figured out how people can exercise their way through lunch time. Me? I usually eat my way through lunch. Where is there time in there to do anything else? But I felt so darn guilty for not exercising this morning that I just HAD to try it.
It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.
I have to come home every day for lunch to walk the pups. So that takes up about 10 or 15 minutes. It's about a 5-8 minute ride between work and home so that ate up about a half hour of my lunch hour. So I did a Jillian Michaels' Shred workout that was 28 minutes. Then I fixed a sandwich to take back with me to work.
I actually made it back to work in exactly an hour. Whew!
I really worked out hard, too. I turned the ceiling fan on high and worked out right under it so I wouldn't get too sweaty. I didn't want to take a shower before I headed back. That's another thing that's always stumped me about people who work out at lunch. How do they have time to shower before coming back to work? I just towelled off and deodorant'ed up real good and went flying out the door back to work. I didn't feel gross when I got back to work, either.
Actually, I had worked out so hard, I couldn't make it back up the stairs at work. I work on the 3rd floor. My legs were like rubber. Plus, I was wearing my new 3" heals.
Did I tell you I bought my first pair of high heal shoes in like 20 years? When you're "top heavy" it's hard to walk in high heals. At least it always has been for me. But when I went shopping for a new pair of shoes a few weeks ago, I tried on a pair that was really high. I thought they'd be too high, but when I walked around in them I felt fine. I didn't wobble or anything.
I tell you, though, I feel like a teenager learning how to walk in her first pair of high heal shoes, though. I have to learn how to do this all over again. I feel silly. But great at the same time. What a milestone for me!
Oh, back to the lunch time workout, the next time, I'll fix my sandwich before I leave for work in the morning so I can eat at my desk before I leave to come home for lunch. I didn't run out of energy half way through the workout, but I was afraid I was going to. So next time I won't have to worry about it.
