Non-Scale Victories: The Walking Desk

This week's non-scale victory involves treadmills, textbooks, and test prep.  If you have been following along this week, you know that I have three exams next week: Professional Responsibility, Securities, Regulation, and Constitutional Law II.  It was wreaking havoc on my workout time until I decided to try studying while I walked (slowly) on the treadmill earlier this week.  It may be the best idea I have ever had!  

I was not getting in enough activity sitting on the couch studying and it showed on the scale. For the last couple of days I have spent at least two hours studying on the treadmill and my Fitbit stats are finally back where I like them--at 10,000 steps per day or more.  Here are yesterday's stats:

Law school exam periods are hard, both mentally and physically.  You don't get enough sleep, you are tempted to reach for unhealthy food because it's easy, and you spend your days drowning in stress.  Finding a way to do something good for my body in the middle of it felt really good.  And that is why I chose it as my non-scale victory for the week.
