I just feel like I need to vocalize my new years plan in order to affirm to myself that I'm going to follow through with it! :
I'm a fairly busy uni student who is totally wrapped up in school and work. My job is to live in uni residence with first year students and act as a resource and uphold the rules-- no drinking games, no beer bottles, quiet hours, etc.
One of the problems is that living in residence leaves me with next to no kitchen facilities of my own, and temptations galore. Vending machines further than the eye can see and hamburgers, chips and fries lining the halls.
My BIGGEST problem however I think is a lack of exercise. Once or twice a week I have 8 pm until 8 am "on-call" shifts where we have to conduct two sets of "rounds" through the building. The residence that I live in is based on towers, though, and has HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of stairs. I get so embarrassed when I can't keep up with my on-call co-workers when they're booking it up and down the stairs all around residence.
What I've decided to do, is in addition to two weekday gym trips is start walking the residence in the evening. You can't even imagine how many stairs this building actually entails; it's 10 flights of stairs in 12 separate towers! I'm gonna try to find a couple of buddies who feel like joining in my little evening walks around the building and maybe get a pedometer so I can see just how much extra work I'm doing!
What do we think??
Back to the beginning again, but trying to make it a lifestyle change instead of a crash-calorie-counting obsession. Journey #1:
