Working Mom Dilemma… Getting Fit While Working From Home

Updated: Sep 25

The biggest mistake most of us make is trying to change everything at once. The majority of people aren’t successful with their program because they can’t keep up with the expectations and end up quitting everything. Start with changing just one or two things you do! Consistence of small changes over time lead to big results. You will only see real change that lasts when you decide to make a #lifestyle change.



Mind

  • Set goals- keep them small and realistic- have them in sight.

  • Take breaks frequently.

  • Listen to music!

  • Stay positive. You don’t need the negativity and either does anyone around you.

  • Take time to breathe. Really breathe! (4 sec inhale, 7 sec hold, 8 sec exhale)

  • Buddy up with someone and motivate each other!

  • Start a #challenge among friends or join an online challenge!

Body

  • Deskercise! (Stretch & strengthen at your desk)

  • Use a step counter- set a daily goal and hit it!

  • Get up every 10 minutes- set reminders…unless your watch tells you already!

  • Shorten your lunch break and sneak in a #workout (at least 3x per week)

  • Sit on a yoga ball at work- keep your posture in check!

Nutrition

  • Track your water intake.

  • Log #nutrition in a journal and let a friend review it each week- accountability!

  • Cut the sugar and artificial sweeteners. Fat doesn’t make you fat, sugar does!

  • Eliminate soda- try carbonated water or use citrus essential oils in water.

  • Eat out only once per week.

  • Keep #healthy snacks handy.

  • Diets don’t work for everyone—find what works for you!

  • Avoid packaged and processed foods.

  • #Fitness is 20% exercise and 80% nutrition. You can’t outrun your fork.


If your day allows, consider taking a brisk, 10-minute walk around the block. Even small chunks of activity, done throughout the week, can help improve your health. You may return to your work area feeling energized and upbeat, too.
