The next pet peeve of mine is kids activities and all their practices. Well that is fine and dandy for your kids they are moving on the soccer field, football field, basketball court etc. but what about you? Instead of sitting in a chair for an hour watching them, choose to get up and move yourself for 20-30 minutes. Make sure you wear your walking shoes and go for a walk, run or a little of both but get out of that chair and move or go help out the coach with the 15-20 kids that are on the team.
If you want to see how far you've gone, how many calories you've burned, how fast your moving etc. then get the runkeeper app https://runkeeper.com/login on your phone that will track all this information. It's a fabulous app to have and helps keep you motivated when you see it on your phone. You see the icon and think, oh crap, I haven't moved today better take care of me.
My son plays basketball in the winter and the facility that he plays at has an indoor walking track above the courts and you can still watch them practice. What do I do? Of course, I get up and go walk on it. But it is so frustrating to see all the other parents sitting on the benches looking at their phones not even watching their kids. I'll admit there are some parents watching their kids but the majority are not. Again, get up and move for 20-30 minutes then sit and watch or look at your phone.
I'm going to stop with my rant now but remember take care of yourself and get up and move whenever you can!
GET UP AND MOVE!
