One would think after being out and about in this warm weather, I'd have lost a few pounds...yet I have not. So, I've been trying to think of ways to burn a few more calories. I'm going to tackle this in a three-pronged approach. First, I'm going to exercise more: schedule a walk in the park a few times a week while the weather is still friendly. Second, I'm stretching more and tackling yoga (more on this in another post for sure, as my husband has gotten me on this kick). And third: I'm taking the stairs more.
Now, I live on the 23rd floor, so I'm not going to fully embrace this on the home front, but whenever I can, whether at a store or in a shorter building, I try to take the stairs.
I wouldn't be able to get to my bedroom if I didn't take the stairs! LOL :)
I hate and despise the stairs but realize its one of those things that keeps my ticker going strong. I hate the stairs for one reason only, I only ever lived in places where there were lots of stairs when I was pregnant but not when I wasn't pregnant! lol :)
I live in a rural area. I have a 2 story home and take the stairs here lol. But in this county buildings are limited to 2 stories so there's not a whole lot of stairs to take. Most buildings are only one story. I think only some homes are two.
Since we live in a two-story, I'm going up & down stairs fairly often throughout the day, but yes, I also take the stairs when I go into an office building if I only need to do 6 flights or less, although I've done as many as 12 when I know the elevators take forever.
