Preventing writer’s bum….

img_4221In a desperate attempt to stop the spread of my bottom over my chair I am trying to do an hour of exercise 5-6 times a week. So that I don’t get bored and my body doesn’t get used to just one type of exercise (as if!), I’m shaking things up a bit.
Monday- weights
Tuesday- Step
Wednesday- am 5km run, pm Zumba
Thursday – X55 (something hideous but hurts so it must work-toning and cardio)
Friday- Zumba
Saturday- 6Km run

Step is something I did in the 90s in a leotard and tights. It is also something I’m not very good at. Like, why is everyone going one way when I’m going the other? How is everyone turning right when I’m turning left? You get the picture.

My body is hurting in places I don’t think I even have muscles. But I’m feeling good. Tired, but good.
What do you do to get your heart racing?

    I’ve set my desk up so that I’m standing at it. First few days I felt like someone had battered me with a lump of wood, now I’m used to it. Apparently it burns a couple of hundred calories an hour and I like that I don’t have to think about it. 🙂

    Wow! 100 calories an hour sounds great! I’ve thought about doing this–I see you can buy cardboard fit outs to raise your desk etc and they’re not overly expensive. Let me know how you get on!
