How to Use Your Lunch Hour to Lose Weight

Your lunch hour can be a great time to not only grab a bite to eat, chat with friends and run a few errands but also fit in a bit of exercise. Here are some fast-paced 20-minute work out that you may want to consider.

  • Walking is simple; it requires no advance preparation and just about anyone can do it. Walk around your office parking lot, at a nearby park or to and from the grocery store or restaurant.
  • There are also many exercises you can do in your office without having to rearrange the office furniture. Squats and lunges are a particularly ideal option. You can also bring a knee up to your chest, hold the position and then switch to the other knee. This is a great abdominal workout that will help you burn that unwanted belly fat.
  • Consider keeping a set of weights in the office cupboard. Start with lightweight weights and the move on to 5 lb. or 10 lb. weights. Use the weights to do bicep curls, shoulder presses and triceps kickbacks.

Naturally, you don't have to stick to just one particular exercise option. Combine these exercises for a power-packed workout that will exercise your entire body. Alternatively, you could do one type of exercise one day and another type the next.

Eating right is the key to weight loss; at the same time, daily exercise also plays an important role in shedding pounds and keeping them off. Plan your lunch hour to make it easy for you to get your body moving as you take a break from your job to grab a bite to eat. As an added benefit, you will also feel less stressed and more energetic than ever before.

44 lbs and 80 inches!!!!! I NEVER could have done this without you ladies. They taught me how to eat. They are encouraging and motivational. Even when I wanted to give up they helped me over come my discouragement of the plateau I hit. 2 thumbs up for the ladies here and the MRC program!!!! I have tried numerous other plans from workouts to diets and mixing the 2. Nothing worked before I started at MRC.
