Needing some more blood flowing today for creativity slump. Bring out the modified standing desk.

A couple weeks ago I responded to a question on G+ from Udi’s social media team. Turns out they like my response so much they sent a snack pack.
However when the said “snack pack” I pictured a small sample box.
They went above and beyond my expectations for sure!
Thanks Udi’s!

12 Microworkouts

July 14, 2014 — Leave a comment

Neila Rey has a great infographic with 12 microworkouts to do throughout the day to keep yourself active.

  1. Do calf raises while brushing your teeth
  2. Do leg raises while watching TV
  3. Do standing leg raises while making food or waiting for it to be microwaved
  4. Walk around while talking on the phone
  5. When leaving the house stretch out and reach for or touch the door frame
  6. Stand up while reading the news or checking on memes
  7. Do 5 squats every time you load a game or during every re-spawn
  8. Do half-jacks while the kettle boils water
  9. Stand on one leg while waiting for someone or something like a bus
  10. Set an alert to get up and walk around every hour for 1 minute.
  11. Do 10 forward lunges during TV commercials or YouTube ads
  12. Start your day with news or memes while doing a plank

These are all easy and doable – just need to remember to do them.

Looking at the list, I tend to have the most problems with #7. I’ve tried this with apps and my Jawbone Up – but once I get in a groove of working on a project it’s really hard for me to interrupt my workflow to do anything – mainly because it takes 15-20 minutes to get back in the rhythm.

I also tend to add DDP Diamond Cutters throughout the day to stretch my back and will often throw in a couple more yoga positions while playing with the kids from time to time.

What do you do to stay active throughout the day?

I scream

I scream, you scream. These boys scream for ice cream. Their sister was a fan as well.

Overnight bags

These Large Utility Totes make great overnight bags – but as large as they are, we may need a few more for IDiddy whenever we take a family vacation.

Good thing I’ve got an special sales connection to the company that makes them: mythirtyone.com/forney
