Working From Home And Weight Gain Are They Relatives

8/19 15:01:35

Did you know that according to the Centers for Disease Control, 64% of the U.S. population 20 years and older is overweight and obese. Last weekend my mom who's very "to the point" remarked to me with her Trini accent... "don't you go swimming anymore.. you looking kinda big" her way of saying that I've put on some more weight.

Since I've been working from home my weight have always been an issue with me. Don't get me wrong, I'm not one to dwell on the way I look, but I do care about my health. With Caron (my wife) being a nurse I get to hear all the stories about patients that are pretty young and in really bad shape at the hospital.

My problem is the lack of exercise (I normally go for walks when it's warm outside, but since it's winter..you won't get me out there unless it's to clear the sidewalk when it snows) and the fact that I miss meals and usually find myself eating HUGE dinners when most people are into their second dream of the night... around 11.30 and 12 am. I don't eat candy, drink pop, chips, eat desserts or any sweets. However I do enjoy the occasional scoop of rum n raisin ice cream.

We've bought the exercise machines.. you know that ones that gets used the first week then sits like a piece of furniture in your office or living room. Our gazelle is now being used as a hanger for clothes when we do our ironing. Well those are getting sold this spring during our yard sale.

It took me a while, but I finally found something that I enjoy doing and it makes for great exercise, swimming. I started a couple years ago and was doing great, until my membership for the pool I use expired and I never went back. I finally went back a few days ago and got a new membership, I guess my moms comments was the spark I needed to get my swimming flame going again.

I have a years membership and since I love swimming (the island boy in me) this will not seem like a chore. I goal is to get in shape and stay that way.

TIP: Find something you enjoy doing that will help with being committed to it.

Are you fighting a weight gain problem?

Have a great day!
