Consider alternatives to sitting at work.
Prolonged sitting is a bad habit for your health, not to mention your posture. The body is not designed to just sit down all day long. You can try other alternatives aside from sitting down while you are at work. Substituting a stability ball for a chair may offer you a great work out. It helps give your core an back a work out as you try to keep your balance as you work. You can even consider standing up while you are checking emails or your computer at work. Standing up can help rev up your metabolism. You other activities can also help you stay focused as standing can help increase blood flow, therefore help increase your cognitive focus.

Use your breaks to work out.
If you wish to lose weight even at work, you can try integrating a workout during your break time. You can try doing some simple exercises from your desk or in a vacant room during your breaks. If not, you can instead consider walking down or up the stairs during your break time or take a quick stroll around the office while taking your break instead of just staying in one place.

Bring workout gear to work.
Eliminate the problem of not having enough time to work out. You always have the option to bring along your workout gear with you when going to the office. That way, you can always change and start a fitness regimen of your choice after work. Whether you can take a jog or go to the gym, you now will not have any excuses left why you cannot work out after work.

Consider having a smart scale in the office.
A motivational boost can also help you increase your drive to stay with your program. As you start the habit of trying to lose weight while at work, it also helps to monitor your progress. You can try having a smart scale you can use while at the office. It will help you keep track of your progress and whether you will need to keep it up or do more. With a smart scale, you can also keep track of your health data such as BMI, body fat measurements, weight history and more. And with the office WiFi, the device can send the data and stats into your email directly.
