The Handicap Stall

Saturday, June 25, 2016

Now don’t laugh, OK laugh but I’m getting my exercise in. Like a lot of people I keep finding excuses that I do not have time to get to the gym, go for a walk... About two months ago I walked into the handicap stall and my body was screaming to move. I had been sitting at my desk for about 3 hours from the moment I had walked into work. This is normal for me sometimes I need to remind myself to go to the bathroom before I wait too long… LOL

On this day I decided I did need to move, I did a few stretches, touched my toes yup still can reach them… walking back to my office I felt refreshed and more alert. This was a really nice feeling. As I sat back down to work I started to think that was easy to just move for a minute, I can find a minute or two easily.

That started me on a new road, each time I use the rest room I get a mini workout in and having the rails in the handicap stall helps me do squats, vertical push-ups, stretches… Now each time I use the restroom I do a quick workout. It may not seem like much at the moment but amazing things have started to happen. My knees are a lot less painful since the muscles have gotten much stronger. My balance is better and overall I’m starting to see my body transforming. From a work perspective I’m more alert and focused and in turn more productive. When I have a meeting to go to I make a point to use the “restroom”. No more feeling sluggish during meetings but alert and contributing to the discussion… I highly recommend the handicap stall to start your workout...

    👍your doing something. That's awesome. I use to pace on my bus to keep my legs stretched out. But it is hard when others are around. They give you weird looks. Like why are you walking back and forth on a bus? Have a great day!
