7 Weight Gain Traps to Avoid at Work ...


Working a desk job may seem like one of many weight gain traps waiting to happen, but just because you work a desk job doesn't mean that you have to gain weight. I've seen plenty of healthy people spend the majority of their days sitting at a desk. Soon to start a desk job myself, the thought of sitting all day actually scares me just slightly, however, I know that there are things that I can do to avoid this. Here are seven weight gain traps at work and how both you can avoid them.

1. Failing to Plan Exercise

Your exercise appointment should be planned, scheduled and penciled in just like a meeting with your boss would be. Find a time that works best for you and stick to it. For me, I know the only way I will not miss this appointment is if I schedule it in the morning. I like to start my day with a good workout; it sets the tone for my entire day. Whenever I try to plan my workouts in the afternoon, a project, a happy hour invitation or pure exhaustion tend to come up. While it might be hard to avoid hitting the snooze button in the morning, I find that if I lay out my clothes, prep my breakfast and coffee the night before and know exactly what kind of exercise I am going to do, after a few days, my body craves this heart pumping time. If you happen to enjoy working out in the evenings, fail proof your plan by packing your workout clothes the night before and bring them with you to work. That way, you're not even tempted to stay on the couch once you make it home after a long day. Failing to plan and stick to and exercise regimen, is one of the easiest weight gain traps that you can avoid.
