Time Flies is Weight Loss Success Challenge

The fact that time can go whizzing by, hour by hour, day by day, week by week, etc by etc, is a huge challenge for us when we are trying to have weight loss success.

As an example I found myself noting: Gosh, it has already been a week since my last post, where on earth does the time go?

The same could be said about not having eaten in hours and therefore I am ravenous...which leads to making unhealthy food choices.

Time flying by is also a good reason to make an appointment with yourself to move your body first thing in the morning--then the moving you do during the day is a bonus!

Of course it is also important to move throughout the day...studies show that sitting all day not only makes us fatter, but can lead to all sorts of diseases, including cancer. And they are not talking about cancer of the buttocks, as appropriate as that might be.

What are your health-wise time saving tricks? I'd love to hear them and promise I'll pass them on--giving you full credit, of course!

Let's all commit to taking control of our lives and our time in order to achieve the weight loss success we all deserve!

When at work while I'm waiting for a document to fax I often find myself taking a moment to stretch my legs and arms. It doesn't take that much time and often times leaves me feeling less stressed and more energized.

Absolutely! Every little bit helps. Especially with the new research that sitting all day at work, even for those who exercise regularly, is dangerous to our health. Every chance we have to get up and get our blood flowing is a good thing to take advantage of!
