Sometimes it is difficult to maintain an appropriate work life balance, and to train appropriately for wider life and event goals. This article is the first following my attempt to introduce training into my work routine to regain fitness and lose weight, without harming productivity.
For a while I have been struggling to train effectively and with any rhythm as a result of a poor work life balance. With only so much potential to reduce the number of hours spent on work, and with a need to train effectively to improve both physical health and mental resilience, I have been toying with training and working synchronously for some time.
This post is the first of a series which will hopefully show a reduction in weight, and increase in exercise hours over the next while, predominantly through cycling at a standing desk, walking on treadmill while on conference calls, and through replacing static seating positions with a standing desk. To facilitate this I have ordered the Wahoo Kickr standing desk to set up over my turbo trainer, and I’m also planning to replace my static desk with the Bekant sit/stand desk from Ikea.
More on how that all works over the next while, so I’ll leave this post here for now. Hopefully the graph below will populate in the manner intended as we progress through 2019.
