The Intermittent Fasting is still going well, but getting any kind of exercise has not. My job is a lot less physically active than my last job, and while I’ve been coming up with every excuse I can think of to get up from my desk and walk, but it isn’t enough.
I was up, packed, and out the door on my way to Wisconsin for my Dad’s memorial service last Friday before I even thought about posting a check-in, so this check-in is for two weeks.
My daughter was visiting for a couple of days after the memorial, and we went to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, which was far larger than either of us knew. My FitBit tracked over 16,000 steps that day, and we were both exhausted, but we had a great time.
I’ve been trying to tackle the wilderness that my yard has become all week. I literally had to take a weed wacker to the grass to cut it down enough to mow it. My arms were hurting so badly from all of the yard work that I had to take Thursday off to recoup; otherwise, I’m sure my numbers would be just as high as last week, if not higher.
Since closing on the house, I’ve been spending a lot of my time getting it ready for the Boyfriend and me to move in (cleaning and such). That has meant a significant increase in active minutes and steps, but I’m being careful to listen to my doctor and not do anything strenuous.
