  •  you set the bar pretty high (6+ / 0-)

    I have considered getting a stationary bike because of your exercising.  Sometimes (due to the weather) it is hard to get out and get some good cardio done.  

    I hope we dont get that much, but then I have no where to go either.

    When I'm at the hospital, I drink 1 big soda.  I think my blood sugar drops mid morning and I need a charge.  I try to keep a granola bar in my pocket too.

    •  aww, everyone should set their own bar (6+ / 0-)

      and find the activity and routine that works best for them.

      I just chose a bike because it's low impact and seemed like a fun thing. And it still is. Even the stationary. I have trouble reading while doing it, but watching movies or listening to uptempo music works out great for me.

      I'm so aching to get back outside on a daily basis.

      At work I have a bottle of water with me and drink a .5L during every 2 hour period. I go home for lunch. Because I can. It breaks up the night and I know the cats appreciate it.

      •  I like the recumbent bike (5+ / 0-)

        I can read while I'm on it. I usually catch up on back issues of The New Yorker while I'm on there.

        I am thinking about going home for lunch as soon as I get my pets...it's close enough to do it, it'll add an extra 2/3 mile of walking/day, which is never a bad thing, the pets will like the visit, and it will get me away from my desk for a little while. Right now I tend to eat at my desk or not take lunch at all. Sometimes I am at that desk (except for short periods) for 8-10 hours/day, which is AWFUL for you.

        •  I don't sit at a desk, and there are pretty strict (5+ / 0-)

          rules about overtime, and taking a full hour for lunch before you've worked 5 hours.

          Leaving for lunch totally disengages me from the environment and whatever stress is occurring that day.

          I used to sit in the break room, when we could smoke inside. Usually read, and smoked. Skipped eating.

          I don't miss that routine at all.

          •  Yeah, I had cigarettes for lunch for *years* (4+ / 0-)

            :-p  I don't miss that either.

            We have no overtime rules & I work a lot of extra hours. Technically we get a half hour for lunch but almost nobody leaves or takes that much time...a lot of desk lunches with a lot of interruptions. I'm thinking that making a habit of walking away for 30 minutes can only be a good thing. :-)
