I was really excited to see what Shaun T had in store for me on day 2 of T25. Yes, you read that right, I was actually looking forward to my workout tonight. According to Shaun Speed 1.0 is a “. . . fast-paced cardio workout that improves speed and focuses on stretching, stability and sweat.”

Like many of us who are chained to our computers at desk jobs all day I have been reading the articles about “sitting disease” with increasing alarm.

Before strapping this little device on I was sure that my daily activity was okay for someone with a desk job.

After wearing it for a week I found that I was getting in, on average, less than 5,000 steps per day with some days less than half of that (eek!) That is well under the 10,000 steps that “experts” recommend we all aim for everyday. I knew I needed to take action…but how could I possibly fit working out into my already jam packed schedule?
