We all hope to magically lose that extra weight, quit the junk food and Hashtag our photos with healthy can be sexy, but let’s be honest, healthy isn’t really that sexy, however, it is a necessity!

A common excuse is that staying in shape is hard when you spend most of the time at work, and you have got no option but to satisfy your craving with all the temptations surrounding you.

This is unfortunately true, and I have suffered the same issue until I was too sacred to stand on a scale, and so here are the things I have done to ensure I stay fit during work and not give in to my cravings.

1. Eat sensibly.

First things first, is to quit all the extra and unnecessary sweets that you munch on throughout the day. The next step is to say no to all the junk food, and practice self control. Office colleagues may impose a huge temptation on you, but the key is to learn to say no! Also moderation is important, you don’t have to give up completely on fast food, just limit its consumption.

You can start your day by a good, fulfilling breakfast; that will help you stay full till midday and you won’t feel the urge to consume munchies. Always keep fruits nearby, and avoid unhealthy, greasy food.

Snacks are crucial, we know, so you may want to snack on healthy alternatives, such as fruits, nuts, granola bars or healthy smoothies.

2. Drink plenty of water.

I often forget to drink water, as I get busy with work so I lose track of how much water I have consumed. In order to avoid that, you can get the large water bottle, and keep it in front of you on the desk.

If you’re not a huge fan of water, you can have juicy fruits instead, this will also keep your body from dehydration.

3- Bring your own food

Bringing your own lunch to work will force you to refuse takeouts, it is also cleaner and much much healthier. It doesn’t have to be a boring meal, any homemade meal will make a great substitute to junk food.

I personally, bring with me salads or pasta with Turkey or Tuna. for different salad and pastas ideas, click here.

4- Take the stairs

If you don’t have time for the gym, then the simplest form of exercise would do. Skip the elevator, and start taking the stairs instead! And if you get to have lunch break outside the office, choose a nearby restaurant and walk to it.

5- Motivation is the Key!

We all get motivated at first, eager to lose the weight and start this healthy lifestyle, but it doesn’t take long that we lose the motivation and we go back to our old habits. Because motivation is the key, start following pages on Instagram that posts healthy recipes, body transformations, tips on how to how to stay fit, etc.

6- Mind over body

Choose to think positively about this change, believe that it is a better lifestyle, and not something that you are forced to do. Think of how good it is to not feel bloated all the time! Sometimes, we eat because we’re bored or upset, understanding this and fighting the unnecessary urge to eat is important, following your mind and not what your body tells you, is what will keep you going.
