I loved the information especially the part about sitting all day. Well that is my job. I am a receptionist and I sit all day. I get one break a day and that is the hour that I get for lunch. What I need to do is eat and then find me an empty office so that I can work out, which is hard since there are areas of the building that are off limits. I have been teasingly asking the finance team if they can put a treadmill or something in the budget for next year. I get told that is a good ideal but I would really like to see it happen.
I do get out when the weather changes though but right now I am stuck just sitting during the day. One thing in my defense is that I do stay active until its time for me to go to bed. I am somewhat new to the exercise routine but now I am taking it seriously and want to do the best I can to get results.

I agree that swapping sleep with exercise is my biggest curse. Starting today, naps are a no-no. When tired during the day I will force myself to go for a walk, jump rope or lift weights.

I like the idea of setting a timer every half an hour to get up and walk around the office. I will definitely start doing that, I sit in front of a computer all day. Besides, even just a little walking should boost my energy level during the day.

Okay...so the article says sleep is more important than exercise. I have always wondered about that. I get my exercise in almost every day but sleeping...that is definitely a work in progress.

Not getting enough sleep is an issue for me. I will try some of these changes and see if I can have better results!

not getting enough sleep is undoubtedly my biggest hurdle to overcome.

I think rest and eating are the two biggest issues which cause us to plateau. when I dont get enough rest and/or I don't eat enough..I can't function!

#9 is you're not using a heart rate monitor or watch. ;-)
