#257: Getting off the couch

It's come to my attention that I spend a lot of time on the couch. Since I hired a trainer, I've started looking at how active I really am.  Know what I found out?  Not so much.  I realized that while I feel very busy (so busy I feel like should be losing weight just by existing), I'm not nearly as active as I thought I was.

For example, it turns out that when I get home each day around 7 I make dinner and become part of the couch for the next two or three hours. And if I loved it, this wouldn't be a problem.  I don't love it, though. I don't like that a time vortex turns on when I sit down and suddenly three hours and 4 Downton Abbey episodes have gone by.

Tonight I broke the cycle [at least for a day]! I met friends at Table Rock and we hiked up. I got to catch up with a friend I haven't really seen since the spring; I ran into a friend I haven't seen in a long time who was on his way up when we were on our way down, and it felt terrific to be out, maximizing the daylight and beautiful weather!
