During the day, I used different modes of transportation. I walked to the bathroom when I got out of bed at 7:08 in the morning. A few minutes after that, I walked to the kitchen, and then walked to my bedroom. I walked back and forth through different rooms in my apartment a total of eight times, before walking out the door and to campus at 8:00 am. After walking out of my class when it ended at 9:45 am, I walked to the library, where I took an elevator up to the 5th floor. From the elevator, I walked to a desk, sat down, and began to do homework. When I left the library around 11:30 am, I walked to the Arnold House bus stop, where I met my roommate and walked home. Once I was at home, I got into my roommates car and she drove me to the post office. After I had picked up my package, we rode back to our apartment. From my apartment, after lunch, I walked to the bus stop around 2:00pm. From this stop I boarded the bus, and rode it to the ILC. After my last class ended at 3:45, I walked back home to my apartment. Later, I rode in the car again with my sister to the gym. My modes of transportation on this day were walking, riding in a car, elevator and on the bus.
On Thursday, I spent time in my day doing sedentary activities. I began my day by lying in my bed waking up after my alarm went off. Then, I spent time at 8:30am and 2:30pm sitting in class. I also was sedentary while riding in the car and on the bus. I was also sedentary while eating breakfast, lunch and dinner, and while studying in the library. At night after returning from the gym, I was sedentary while doing my homework on my bed at 9:30pm. I was again still when I laid down to go to sleep at 10:20pm. There were many periods throughout the day when I was not mobile.
A good portion of my day was spent in preparatory activities. In the morning I prepared my breakfast at 7:30am. After I ate breakfast, I went into my bedroom and prepared what clothes I was going to wear that day by picking items out of my closet and drawers. After I got dressed, I had to prepare which school materials I was going to bring to class that day. I had to find and pack my notebooks, textbooks, and computer. Once this was done, I had to prepare my lunch for the day. I made a sandwich and pulled a granola bar from the kitchen cabinet at 7:45am. Once I was at the library at 9:50am, I had to prepare to do my homework for each of my subjects by taking out the necessary notebooks, textbooks and my computer. I did this same preparatory task at night when I resumed doing my homework.
