Skipping breakfast: Your body is on empty in the morning, you need to fuel yourself for the day ahead. If you don’t eat breakfast it takes a toll on your weight, energy levels and blood sugar.
Drinking too much coffee: Drink a glass and replace the second with a cup of tea or a glass of water! You don’t want to create a dependent relationship with coffee.
Using the elevator: You can take the stairs if it’s just 1-3 flights!
Getting lunch in town on your break: This first of all breaks the bank.. $7 a day for lunches is $35 a week which turns into $140 a month you could be saving. Secondly, most of the time these options aren’t as healthy as they should be.
Eating late at night: Your body doesn’t need the energy right before you sleep.
Watching T.V after work: There are so many other productive things you can be doing! I’m sure your to-do list is quite long and you keep putting it off until the weekend. Find the motivation to check a few things off the list each day and you’ll burn even more calories for the day! If you feel exhausted after work, maybe there’s something wrong with your diet, or maybe it’s your mindset! Take 20 minutes to watch T.V and relax after work then get up and get moving!
Having a daily alcoholic drink: If an adult beverage is a part of your wind-down routine each night you may be feeding a serious health problem in the future. Not only that, but alcohol can be detrimental to your physical weight-loss and muscle growth progress.
Sitting all day: One of the worst things you can do for your body is sit at a desk for 8 hours a day. Get up once an hour and walk around the office, stretch or take a break outside!
Sleeping in: This puts your whole day behind! It’s a major reason for increased stress levels, skipping workouts, skipping breakfast, and decreased motivation. Set your alarm and get out of bed!
Eating on the go: It’s important for you to eat slow and enjoy the foods you eat. Eating in the car on the way to work is something I’m guilty of when I’m running late. Make sure to account for extra time in the mornings to eat your breakfast.
