I'm painfully sedentary right now. I hardly ever do anything physical. I drive everywhere because it's too far and too dangerous to walk anywhere in this city and my bike got stolen. I drive for a half hour to work, sit in front of a computer for 8 hours and then drive back home and plop. I usually watch online lectures for my class and do homework, play around on the internet for a while, and then go to bed and do it all over again.
The only remotely active thing I do is rock climbing in a gym two days a week. That's really a workout! But, most of my time there is spent resting because I'm so out of shape otherwise.
In August, I will be forced to be more active. I'll be back at college and walking or biking (once I buy a new one) pretty much everywhere. I'll also be in a Pilates class (gym's required for graduation) and continue rock climbing at least twice a week, hopefully more. In addition to that, I'd like to start swimming twice a week with my boyfriend as well.
I need to get ready for this sudden jump in physical activity, but I don't have access to a normal gym or pool.
Here's the plan:
- Continue rock climbing twice a week
- Drive to the much safer parks and have a good hike every day
- Stop playing so much on the computer after work!
Hopefully I can manage this as there are very few requirements!
