Back on the Grind and in Need of Suggestions!

Thursday, October 19, 2017

It took me longer to get back on track than anticipated...had a few false starts but I am recommitting to getting this weight off (again). While I gained 10 of the 35-40lbs I lost previously, I feel like it's a ton and can really tell it's back with a vengeance (my pants hate me). My cholesterol is back up. my energy has been low, and I am just not feeling good in general. Subsequently, I am back with the nutritionist, tracking my food, and being more active (although exercise is definitely an area in desperate need of improvement). Since I work in IT and am basically at my desk ALL damn day...I am looking for ways to be more active (other than standing and walking whenever possible). I would really like some form of exercise equipment that I can do at my desk (balance balls have been banned for safety reasons). Any suggestions would be great as I know sitting here this much isn't good for my goals, health, or mental sanity!

    I walk the stairs at work instead of the elevator. I also keep a 5 lb set of weights under my desk. I have to be careful about caffeine late in the day so if I hit an afternoon slump I find doing some arm exercises and a few squats gets me pumped back up. emoticon

    Take shot breaks when you can. Do squats anytime you go to use the restroom. Park as far away from the building as you can. Use stairs instead of the elevator. You got this!

    Get up and take a short walk as often as possible.

    Keep on Keeping on!

    Make today the greatest day of your life!
