There are some nice people on this team and Sparkpeople has more information than you can read! One suggestion, carry papers to someone else rather than e-mail.

There are some SP blogs and articles that may help.

Also, there are SP teams that may help. I belong to Quickfire. Click on my name to get to my SPpage, it is there. Then, click on the team. I really get a kick out of the little exercises they come up with!

Hi Janie and welcome :)
You might want to check out the spark exercise videos. I'm sure they have chair exercises you can do, or even google chair exercises, or exercises while sitting at your desk. You can take 5 minutes out of every hour and do one of the exercises.. If you work an 8 hour day, that's 40 minutes of movement! You can also go for a quick walk on your lunch or break..
Good luck to you :)

Welcome JANIEDB80,
and I'm glad you for the Perimenopause to menopause team.With tracking your food and being more active your sure to see the results your looking for.

And I think we have a few ladies here on the team who work at a desk that might be able to help you and give you ideas in what your looking for.

emoticon , JANIEDB80. This is a nice, active group. You should get plenty of community support. It's great that you understand that "slow" actually gets you places. As we get older, weight loss slows a bit. But slow and steady wins the race. I was able to jump start my weight loss several times by changing my exercises, logging my food and getting lots of support from this group (thank you, group). One thing I've seen people do is work on their smart phone while walking on the tread mill. That will burn a few calories while you get your work done. Another is to take a few minutes every hour to stretch, do some calisthenics, take a quick walk around the office or building. There are lots of articles on SparkPeople that talk about sedentary jobs. Good luck.

I have a fair amount of weight to lose but at (nearly) age 53 my goals have changed. I am patient with slow, steady, and balanced process. I am willing to track and be accountable. And I'm looking forward to fun new ways to get fit! One ongoing problem is my work situation. I am an editor and spend most of my 8 hours daily sitting in front of a computer. I need to find more ways to build activity into my day - and the temptation to eat at my desk is significant. I'd love to hear more about how folks cope with sedentary jobs.
