So, what do I do? A little bit of everything. I fidget. I tap my feet at my desk. I bounce my legs. I tap my desk. I play pattycake. I make my paperwork less efficient. I put my inner office envelops in the appropriate cubbies each time instead of saving all my documents for one delivery because it means I get up and walk around and out of my office throughout my shift. I also pace...around and around and around I go. I pace the perimeter of my office and my break room. I stand. I wiggle. I walk/jog in place. And, when I'm alone, I dance a little jig. I'm sure it makes whoever has to watch the video feed cringe 'cause my moves are fan-flippin'-tastic! Then there's the super secret squirrel isometric gluteal liftin' squeezes. I also bring one of my favorite pieces of #AintGotTimeForExcuses equipment. It's a purse kettlebell. Couldn't find a pink one, but my name is Sarah Leigh and purple signifies royalty, as does my name. Kettlebell squats don't look cute, but they get the blood flowin' into your lower body muscles. I curl for my biceps, I extend for my triceps, and I even manage to hit my deltoids.
Do I have it all figured out? No, but that's not the point. Like everything in life, my office routine is evolving. What I do today will help me do more tomorrow. Do something with me! You can pick up a hand weight or even get your very own purse kettlebell. If you cannot afford to purchase 'em, use what you have. You can use canned food, repurpose milk or OJ jugs by washing them/refilling them with water or sand, and walking is always free. Don't let a moment of #IDontWantTo lead to a lifetime of #ICantBecauseIWont.
