I work in a sit down at your desk all day long environment. It might not be taxing physically, but it does take a toll on you mentally.
What I have been working on is getting more steps in on a daily basis while at work.
On the first day of July, I did not do well at all. I only got in 3076 steps.
July 2nd, I did a little better. I doubled the number to 6232.
My goal is to achieve 10,000 steps a day.
Ways I am going to try to achieve this:
- Take a short 5 minute walking break every hour.
- During my 15 minute breaks, walk around the building.
- Take the stairs
- Take the long way to the bathroom
- Walk somewhere for lunch
What ways do you get steps into your day? I need more ideas!
I do. Most Roller Derby Atheletes do. Here is what I take and some explanations of why.
Vitamin D: D helps keep your bones strong. It doesn’t stop there though. Here is a wonderful article that explains: http://fiveonfivemag.com/issues/6
Calcium: For bone, muscle and immune system
Biotin: Derby girls get their pictures taken a lot. I know I don’t want to look at my picture and think I look hideous. Biotin helps with your skin, hair and nails.
Cinnamon: helps with Sugar Metabolism, heart and circulatory health.
Fish Oil: Heart Health
Glucosamine and Chondroitin: This helps with Joint Health, it also helps with the bruising.
It’s Vital – Minerals: Aquamin, Sea Minerals and Vitamin K http://morgancartwright.myitworks.com/shop/product/319/
Daily Women’s Vitamin to cover anything I missed above.
What vitamins do you take and why do you take them?
