Default Sit Less Often

Are you sitting down? You may want to stand more often. Researchers have linked sitting for long periods of time to a number of health concerns, including obesity and Metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is a triad of conditions that raise your risk for heart disease and diabetes. Metabolic syndrome is diagnosed when at least three risk factors are present:

Metabolic risk factors include:
Elevated blood pressure
Elevated waistline
Elevated triglyceride level
Low HDL cholesterol level (good cholesterol)
Elevated fasting glucose level

Sitting on the job is associated with increased health risks that may not be diminished by exercise. In other words, if you sit most of the day, even if you hit the gym a few hours a week, you may still be at risk for a host of health conditions. Extended sitting, such as at desk or in front of a TV, can be harmful.

Short frequent breaks from sitting have been shown to improve employee health, productivity and well-being. Micro bursts of movement can help counteract the detrimental health effects of sitting. A simple solution to this problem is to sit less and move more. Examples include frequent standing breaks, standing while talking on the phone, taking the stairs instead of the elevator/escalator, stretching and taking short walks every 90 minutes. The muscle activity required for standing seems to trigger important processes related to the breakdown of fats and sugars in the body.

Hooray! You are all doing SO well! What a bunch of strong gals!

Sorry I have not been back. Not a good forum poster. But glad to report I lost those 3 pounds I'd gained back (took a week), and this week lost 2 more. Holding my nose to the grindstone.

Corrine, that is a very good article. I'd read it a few years back. It's very hard when you have a desk job and the pounds sneak up on you. Started at my work 20 years ago and I was 116 pounds, early 30's. When I tell the young girls that are just starting that they look very skeptical. That old fat woman can't have looked like me! Then I watch them all slowly get chunkier as they sit at a computer all day.

Weigh-in today - down 4.2 lbs

Peanutbutter - Good for you on losing!

I am lucky in my job that we normally sit and work no more than an hour, then get either an hour or 1/2 hour break.

Renee and Andi - Yay for keeping it going in the right direction!

Lucindaarrowspark - Isn't it amazing how much easier it is to deal with things when you feel so good about yourself?

Keep up the good job, everyone

Jude

NO weight loss this week but at least I didn't gain. PT on my arm/shoulder is going okay. Still hurts and saps my motivation to exercise : (

Good job everyone this week!

Iamlakeview - I had PT for my shoulder back in Fall of 2012. It took about 3 months. 2 months of stretching/movement regaining exercise, then 1 month of weights. I regained full movement but have to continue to do the exercises just about every day. There is always some pain. But that's when you reach up and lean into the wall and make it hurt! Oh man what a painful stretch. But after about 10 seconds it's good again!

Good luck and stick with it. It's worth it.

Hang in there Bonnie! No weight loss is better any day than a gain. Keep you head up and smiling. You will do it.

Oh Lizzie, we have all been there and know how you feel. Maybe it was just a slight gain this week. I bet next week you will be right back in there where you are suppose to be. Don't give up just yet. I know you have the will power to get back in there and knock that pound plus more away. Go Lizzie!!!


Stay strong Aida. Choose only the healthy food. You can do it.


Way to go Jude!!!! Now that is some weight loss. You are just really moving along towards your goal. Keep at it!


Peanut Butter, keep your focus. Good job on getting back on track and then losing an additional two pounds. See what you can do when you put your mind to it. Great job!!!

Your past does not equal, nor does it dictate, your future.

One definition of insanity is: Doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result.


Do you choose to simply know the path, or do you choose to walk it?

I will not allow the scale to dictate to me. The scale is a tool, usefull but I can not let it control my life. Yes my weight is up 2 pounds. No I have not binged, over eaten or done anything to sabotage my healthy journey. So I will take a deep breath and not freak out. Maybe I need to accept a slight adjustment.

I bet tomorrow when you step on it, it will say something different. I can just imagine your eyes when you saw it.


Don't be worried just yet. Let's see what tomorrow looks like first.

For sure the scale is only a tool. Plus so much can affect your day to day weight - If you are on plan, I am sure it must be temporary

Corinna, you made me laugh with that icon!
