I think this feeds right in to the last post you started -- if you live that sedentary life, then as soon as the work day ends, get out and move. Those folks have to exercise formally. When I had a desk job, as soon as my day was over I went out and ran. On the weekends, I played basketball. Now I was a young lawyer in those days and so the work day and work week never really ended, so I took breaks, did my exercise, meditated, ate, and often had to get right back to working, but in that situation, being an active type of person, I just had to get out and move. Otherwise my mind turned to mush. It's how I got through graduate school and law school, where you sit in a library and study for hours on end. But when the mind did all it could do, it was time to move. Come on people, isn't anyone else out there? Mom is working hard to help us all here, there has to somebody else here -- this used to be an active forum!
Hey, Best Ways to Lose Weight at Work :
Eat a big breakfast.
Avoid dinner at the office.
Travel with nonperishable foods
Keep your hands busy.
Drink a glass of tomato juice
Start your meeting with protein and fiber.
Drink before you dine.
Being desk-bound at your 9-to-5 (ugh, more like 9-to-7) can set up a series of weight-loss hurdles. Your typing fingers are the only part of your body actually getting a workout and mindless snacking at your desk under the glow of fluorescent lights isn’t exactly helping to whittle your waistline.
1. Prioritize 30 Minutes of Exercise
Give your daily schedule a good look and try to find 30 minutes to work out five days a week.
2. Turn the Stairwell into Your Gym
When you get to work, take the stairs instead of the elevator,30 minutes of exercise a day by spending 10 minutes walking up and down the stairwell three times a day (or just 30-minutes straight.
3. BYO Vending Machine
Turning a desk drawer into your healthy eating paradise can keep you out of the chips and cookies in the office vending machine, saving you tons of calories. Like dried fruit, nuts, non-buttery popcorn, and tea.
4. Drink 91 Ounces of Water per Day
active women should be drinking at least 2.7 liters, or 91 ounces, every freaking day. While you should be doing this on the weekends too.throughout the workday can fight off fatigue, prevent dehydration headaches, and (hopefully) keep you from snacking when you're not hungry.
5.Chase Your Snacks with Protein
When you feel a snack attack coming on that's because the muscle-building protein takes longer to digest than carbs and sugar. So you won't feel the blood sugar spike and crash that follows. Nut butter, nuts, seeds, beef jerky, or even a hard-boiled egg will do the trick.
6. Bring Your Lunch
While taking a break from your desk is a great way to kick stress and bank more steps, that fast-casual burrito will likely clock in above 1,000 calories and make you feel sluggish in the afternoon.
Its all about time management and taking good care of your health. Work out is really important to keep the body in good shape. You mind will work properly if you body respond as quickly and efficiently. Mind and body are connected and work as peer to peers. So Digest the fact the you need to take the tome and workout at least twice or thrice a week otherwise be ready to bear dire consequences. And you also need to control you appetite for tempting food and you can for sure if you want good health.
I sit on the desk most of the day too! Thanks for all these tips. I think it is important to keep a tight schedule - choose a time for workouts and stick with it. In may case, 30 minutes first thing in the morning is best. It's just in the treadmill. Then I do intermittent fasting. I slacked down during the holidays and having a hard time getting back into the routine. But will eventually do! What I did was have fasting 5pm to 9am, but recently, I tried fasting 6pm to 12 noon so basically skipping breakfast. Not too successful in keeping the sked - especially if usual sked gets broken by unexpected events, and the sugar spikes haven't resolved themselves yet, but slowly getting the groove back!
I practice eating less by skipping breakfast so from 6pm to 12 noon i dont eat. I sometimes achieve it. Its really helpful because i have patm. I drink alot of water. Bottles. Its all in the mind . i have to stay busy. I dont exercise because i have long walks to do arrends. Plus i daily mop the whole house or rake outside a bit. I feel great with such diet. I pray to god to help me achieve it more often.
