Thanks for sharing this bit of insight. We often dont think about how we spend so much time on our rears, sitting at our office jobs, being sedentary, to later find the easiest foods to eat for our meals, often convenience foods. Though I believe many Sparkers make a greater effort to resist that lifestyle, many of us have lived it. It is not asking too much of ourselves to spend 30-60 minutes into exercise and the same effort into planning our meals. The other 22 hours a day in a restful state is really quite enough.*
*Of course this does not apply to those who have very active jobs, but I am sure they are in the minority,
So, I have been watching this season's Biggest Loser on Hulu and something that Dr. H said to one of the contestants has stuck with me for a couple of days now and I wanted to share it with my teams:
"If I told you that you had lymphoma, would you take 2 hours out of your day for chemo?"
The implication was clear. The long-term effect of obesity is every bit as deadly as lymphoma, perhaps even moreso. So why won't we take the time out of our day to "treat" that?
Just some food for thought!
