Ah yes the middle Eastern genes of having hips that don’t lie..cute in songs, not so much when they are allowed to get out of control 😉
It has been hard getting rid of the last bit of baby weight..and my 8-9hr of sitting at my fancy office job certainly isn’t helping. So I am making some changes:
– I downloaded a timer on my desktop..I set it to buzz every hour and I get up and do squats or lunges or just jump around. The image would certainly be funnier if I had an open office but I don’t so joke is on you..my office is at the end of the hallway and I rarely get passers by..one day it may happen..watch it be the provost or president!
– My boss approved getting an exercise ball to use as a desk chair..oh the fun to be had..soon very soon
– Finally, many will find this last tip typical Souraya. My office is at the end of the hallway in our department, with a few offices separating it from the copier and water cooler. Everyday, I try to find excuses to walk to the copier/water cooler..except walking there would be ‘normal’. Oh no, I cannot have that..nope my version is
‘high knees high knees..walk normal (the office doors I pass by have a small window)..lunge lunge..walk normal..someday someone at the end of that hallway is going to think I’m crazy..as long as they don’t film me 🙂
Now excuse me while I celebrate that it is Friday and that I can run around after my toddler instead of my strange attempts at office fitness
