5 Time  -  saving Weight Loss Tips

So, you want to lose weight but the biggest obstacle that stands in your way is a busy schedule and you couldn't find time to exercise. But perhaps you have tried working out a couple of times before but your weren't successful. And traditional workout of setting an ample time just for exercise was difficult to apply.

Before you give way and accept that physical activity is not possible in your current situation, let me propose a solution. The solution is applying short exercises which you can carry out when there is an available time.

In order to continue working without being interrupted by health problems relating to lack of physical activity, you need to exercise. But it will required also a change in your eating habits. How are you going to do that?

Here are five practical time-saving tricks that will help you lose weight:

(1) Include exercise in your routine. If your work place is just nearby, walking to the office daily, instead of driving can easily secure an organized daily workout. Although, you have to leave home earlier than before, it's worth the effort. And when you do this exercise, just remember that the faster you walk the more you burn calories. Another good option is cycling to the office.

(2) Work out during work breaks. If walking to the office is not an option, you can exercise during work breaks. As you take a coffee break try applying short exercises like squats, push-ups, and abs exercises. Just look for a place in the office where your boss won't see you (better if you have your own room in the office). Coffee break is also a good time to apply short exercises, because coffee helps energize the body.

(3) Bring raw fruits and vegetables. Raw fruits and vegetables are easy to carry, and bringing some with you making them a part of your meal or snack, instead of processed foods, will add a load of important nutrients that your body will thank you. Eating fruits and vegetables between meals can also prevent overeating.

(4) Cook more than you need at one time. Cooking food in the morning that is enough for one day will save you time and effort later, because you can place your cooked food in small containers and refrigerate them for later use in the office or at home. Cooking also gives you opportunity to prepare healthy foods. But do this only when you have time to cook.

(5) Multitask during workout. If ever you are unable to exercise in the office, your last chance is to work out at home. Normally, exercises have 1-2 minutes rest in between, so you'll have option to do something else during rest period. A good 15-minute workout will surely shed some pounds.

If you can show consistency in your workout and healthy eating, you can lose weight in a steady pace.

Good one Lemuel, it's funny how we can always find an excuse to have no time to exercise, yet the same people will stand in long queues for a fast food, or what ever...........

Reply

Yeah, and the shortest workout now is only 2-3 minutes (much shorter than the long queues in fast foods).

Reply

I know there are so many exercises one can do while standing in that queue. When my back was damaged playing rugby, the Doctor said I would need to rebuild and strengthen my back muscles, his advise, when ever standing pinch the bum muscles, squeeze and release, this did wonders for my back, yet I often wonder what someone behind me, looking at my arse, must of thought. I know there are all sorts of little things one can do without going to a gym, I've just forgotten most of them.....

That's interesting. looks like the squeezing was some form of stretching or massage a specific muscle area. Good that it worked for you. Glad to hear you played rugby. It's definitely a much tougher game than football/soccer.

I'm not convinced that rugby is harder than football, I watch some of the tackles made in football and would far rather go into a tackle in rugby, seems less painful...

Really? Perhaps it's because I haven't tried playing rugby. Football is very rough and many would give up during training, but speaking of sports injuries, I read an article several months ago that showed basketball has more injuries than football. But the number 1 on the list is cycling (or perhaps mountain biking). I'm not sure about the latest update.

Now that is interesting, just goes to show that proper training for the knocks taken in rugby and football, cannot be trained for when falling off a bike....

I guess when an athlete falls off the bike, he falls in a awkward position, that's why they have a lot of injuries. Plus, the speed adds up to a powerful impact.

Good points to steal time for workout! Actually, doing effective exercises for 15 minutes every other day will have great impact on weight loss. The challenge is doing it consistently and persistently.

Thank you Amanda. Yeah, exercise is really important, but consistency and persistence will always challenge, so to remain focused one should always fix his/her eyes on the prize ahead.
