Currently, as I am writing this piece, I have been (actively) working as an apprentice in an architectural firm. If you have read my past lifestyle blogs, you would know that I am in the process of changing my lifestyle. I am a big fan of exercise, BUT I have to say that working a 9-6 desk/on-site job makes it very difficult to find time to work out daily.
If your city offers a good transportation system to the public, then there is no excuse not to commute to work. But if you live in a city where the commuting situation is almost non existent, I have no choice but to drive. But to “stay active” or “keep moving”, I park a bit further away from my office building to force myself to walk and wake up earlier than usual to get a good parking spot.
It is so easy to say that you undoubtably have no time for exercise with your long hours during the week. If so, take time during weekends to work out, which make you look forward to them all the more.
A productive Sunday planning can make a great week! Take time to plan your work lunch meal plans, strategically schedule your workout sessions and dinner dates during the week.
Find a workout that will stick to your work routine. In my case, I work from 8:30am till 6 in the evening. So usually by the end of the day, I am totally pooped from working all day.
But what I do to keep myself active, is that I wake up at 5:30am(I know, It can be tough) and get in a spin class then I dash home shower(and put some makeup of course!) then head straight to work! and sometimes with some time to spare! If that isn’t inspiring then I don’t know what is.
Upgrade Your Weekly Meal Prep
It is as easy as subscribing to a healthy meal subscription that can deliver straight to your office. But another way that I do is that I plan all the meals that I like eating and that are low carb based into a weekly planner to remind me on what meals I should prepare in the morning. And sometimes I throw in a few cookies here and there!
When it comes to packaging, I usually use those lock & lock tupperwares that are air tight and have dividers in them!
