Loretta's Countdown to 60

Let’s do this together video – It’s all about movement

Are you getting enough movement in each day?

After a day of sitting at my computer, I’m more tired than when I started my day. You would think sitting all day wouldn’t be so tiring, but it is.

And more times than I care to admit, I end up sitting in front of the television at night. I mean, season two of Westworld is on! As well as The Handmaid’s Tale, and sure, you’re right, those should only take up a couple of hours, two nights a week right?

But the other night I saw a great older movie show up in the queue that I just had to see again. Have you seen Seabisquit? Such a great movie.

I’m finding all of this sitting is taking a toll on me. My back hurts and I am low energy. I’m not sleeping well either.Β 

So on days I haven’t gotten enough movement in, I better forgo Westworld and get my butt up.

How about you? Do you sit for your job all day, and then sit at night too? How’s that working for you? I say we get up and move about, even just a walk outside for 30 minutes has to help, right?

  1. I totally agree – movement is key. I sit all day at a desk at work. I don’t hardly sit at home at all – I watch NO tv and I attend exercise classes several nights a week. I feel so much better on the weekends when I’m moving even more thru the day. I think I need a stand up desk/computer set up!

      Such a good idea Cindy…I really need to drop my bad TV habit!
      Someone suggested setting an alarm for every 50 mins…get up and move about for 10. I thought that was a great idea.

  2. I am not as good as I was… need to up my game again x

  3. Some days I move all day! Today I did not! And I don’t like how I feel.

    But tomorrow I will! I use to walk but planters fasciitis has taken over my feet. So bike riding and gardening and a cardio dance class help.

    Blogging, and social media cause us to sit!

      I hear you on that foot issue…I don’t have planters fasciitis, but do have a fused joint in my right foot. Makes it difficult to walk too much. Biking is the best.

      And yes…I blame it on the blogs! πŸ˜‰

      Thanks Nancy.

  4. We gotta get movin’ then catch up on Westworld πŸ™‚
