I thought that it would be easy meeting my blogging schedule with a newborn because don't they sleep a lot?
Turns out, not so much.
And it also turns out that I have too many subscribers to this blog - it no longer can email notifications of posts to you because it crashes the email system.
Also, in other news, I found my first gray hair. Thirty five years with nothing. Six weeks of sleep deprivation and hello Bea Arthur. I didn't pluck it. And not just because I didn't want 3 more to come to its funeral (is that even true?) but because my eyes no longer focus well enough to find it in the mirror.
While I'm not blogging as often as I like, I do make it to our FaceBook page often to interact and answer Q and A. Come join us if you can. It was on FB that someone posted an infographic called "Sitting is Killing You."
My thoughts (please mail penny to my home address):
- Get a standing work station. You cannot justify sitting at work. You really can't any longer.
- Walk (don't run!!!) 4-5 miles a day (not necessary to do it all at once and don't do it on a treadmill.)
- Fix the position of your bones via stretching your muscles.
P.P.P.S. I think this 1000 word blog is worth more than one penny.
And (how many times have I started a sentence with "And" in this post?), to help you out, I am having a contest where you can submit a picture of your standing work station to get a chance to win one of my DVDs of your choice aaaand the coveted half dome. If you don't know what a half dome is, it is the best piece of health equipment, ever, used for the best exercise for your health, ever, the Calf Stretch.
I'm not going back to edit that sentence. I'm leaving it for style purposes.
Below are a few examples of submissions. If you've got a pic to share, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll take them until June 1st.
Sorry the pics are so small. Now you know what it feels like to be me, squinting at my hair follicles.
More reading, if you are a huge nerd, have an extra $150.00, and have taken math up to differential equations (if not, it will be a waste of $): The Physics of Cerebrovascular Diseases, Biophysical Mechanisms of Development, Diagnosis and Therapy, by George Hademenos and Tarik Massoud.
