My health journey has been a long one. Losing weight and getting in shape is not about dieting — it’s a LIFESTYLE change. And mine has been years in the making. (And one I currently maintain with my FlexiSpot!)
In college I gained the (sadly typical) Freshman 15 and from there my 20s were mainly too much sugar, vino, and not enough veggies and working out. While I’ve never been a big fast food eater, it was more about oversized portions, sugar, and going out for drinks way too often.
At first it was all about small changes. For example, when I was working in an office I started bringing my lunch every day. I also started signing up for classes 3 times a week at Barre3 — since I was paying it forced me to show up! And lastly, I had to cut back on sugar. I have the WORST SWEET TOOTH… as does my mom… and my grandma. We just love sugar.
Instead of having dessert after dinner (and sometimes lunch) I would have something small and sweet. No more cookies or processed food! I might have a small serving of low calorie cereal, or a piece of dark chocolate. Currently my favorite dessert is a rice cake with peanut butter and dark chocolate chips. Or I love medjool dates because they are super sweet and satisfying. Over all making better food choices was easy for me, but the cutting back on sugar took time. Now I no longer crave it like a used to and prefer foods that are naturally sweet over baked goods.
FlexiSpot Exercise Bike With Desk is truly a game-changer and I can’t recommend it enough!
As for my workouts, I prefer to mix it up. I mix cardio with light weights or exercises that use my own body weight like yoga or pilates. And I love using my FlexiSpot… I’M USING IT RIGHT NOW! Seriously as I write this I’m petaling away. And instead of sitting on my bum, I’ll burn several hundred calories while I work… or watch Bravo… or YouTube. I’ve found it SO HELPFUL on those days where I have too much work and can’t get a workout in. It can also be used as a stand up desk for when I’ve done enough pedaling and need to work but don’t want to sit.
