Avoiding Late Afternoon Treats At Work ( From Coworkers And Clients)
Members Were Sparked
I have been asking myself a few questions. Are the extra calories worth it? Is this something I really want or should I find a healthy snack (which I usually have with me)? Why do you want it? Often the answers to these questions lead me to make healthier choices or limit what I decide to eat. Either way I do not have guilt and am able to work it into my eating plan.

Fail proof way to get in your 10 minutes every day
I do two sets of strength training exercises every time I go to the bathroom. I alternate upper body and lower body exercises every other day. My favorites are incline pushups and tricep dips using the bathroom vanity. Lower body favorites are squats, lateral lunges, single leg squats, and standing leg lifts. I also spend half my day (afternoons) at a standing work station at work. It helps with back pain and I avoid the afternoon slump.
No equipment needed and you hardly break a sweat. Three trips to the bathroom a day is your 10 minutes and you didn't have to carve out any time to do it or even change into your gym clothes!
