As a blogger and a teacher I find myself behind a desk a lot; more with the blog job than the teaching job. As a computer teacher there are hours of my week I am behind the computer grading and learning new programs. The lack of activity there and then working from my computer at home each week is affecting the calories that I could be losing.
I have lost about 9 lbs this summer and my secret is eat better and move more!
There are a lot of ways you can stay fit with a desk job but why not work on it while you are at your desk!
Here are 4 ways to stay fit behind a desk!
Move often: Set a reminder to get up at least once every 30 minutes. Reasons to get out of your desk:
- This could mean purchasing a headset and walking around during phone calls.
- Need to talk to a co-worker, don’t call them and walk over to their office.
- Don’t eat at your desk, go for a two-minute walk and eat at a new location. Then take a couple of minutes to talk back.
Get rid of the candy and replace with healthy snacks: I am a stress eater! I figured this out this summer when I went straight for food every time I was a little stressed. Donuts, chocolate, candy, and chips are my comfort foods. Instead get rid of the candy dish and fill your desk with sugar free gum, carrots, frozen grapes, almonds, or another healthy snack idea. Try eating a light lunch and a couple of small snacks throughout the day.
Increase your water! I LOVE my Diet Dr. Pepper, but if I am trying to take care of myself…water is the way to go! I am not a doctor but my doctor advised me to drink less caffeine to keep me in a better mood. I thought I needed more to stay in a better mood.
Work out while sitting down: I was provided a Cubii to review! Cubii is an elliptical machine that fits under your desk! This machine allows me to type this review right now and lose calories!
Here is what I love most about my Cubii:
It syncs with my smart phone. So if I can work out for two hours a day each day…then I have burned enough calories of food for a day! My goal right now is to use it for one mile a day.
It was so easy to set up! They even sent me a screwdriver to put the pedals on! I am not sure of any company that sends you a screwdriver to put their equipment together! This was really worth it!
So be sure to check back with me in a month! As of now, this is my Cubii Story! #MyCubiiStory
