How many times have you heard that the month of March "comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb?" This year, the old Farmer's Almanac idiom seemed particularly apt, though I wish the lamb had showed up a little earlier. With no "spring break" trip to warmer climes this year, I'm ready for some serious sunshine and the chance to break out my golf shoes. Until then, it's neither lions nor lambs, but leopards I've got on my mind (or my feet, as the case may be). I'm also taking advantage of the low key atmosphere that permeates my office this time of year (when it seems almost everybody but me is on vacation) to wear jeans to work, albeit in red rather than traditional blue.
Despite my trepidation and lack of grace, my treadmill desk experiment was a success, and I found it pretty easy to spend an hour working while plodding methodically toward my 10,000 steps per day minimum goal. It's no substitute for my regular work outs, but it's a lot better than sitting at my desk all day, and it actually gave me some additional mid-afternoon energy. Doing it in these calf-hair, leopard print shoes, however, was not my best decision. I'll be tucking a pair of tennis shoes into my briefcase tomorrow.
