Eat The Fat off

by Mathew John (2019-11-28)

For example, in my situation as a fifth grade teacherEat The Fat off Review whose classroom is located on the second floor, I have quite a number of opportunities per day where I have to walk up and down a flight of stairs to get to my classroom. Just counting the number of times that I go up and down the flight of stairs before school, recess, lunch, computer lab, etc. I average about twenty trips on any given day. I was actually surprised at the number when counting the trips up and down those stairs! But afterwards I realized what was actually happening. Those twenty trips up and down the stairs is a form of exercise. Those trips up and down are forcing me to use muscles while at the same time increasing my heart-rate, even if it is for a brief moment. Now think if those twenty trips a day were multiplied by 2, 3 or even 5 times on a daily basis, I would be walking up and down those stairs over 200-500 times a week.Even though this is not a sweat dripping workout, I am building leg strength, stamina, and increasing my heart-rate which in turn burns calories. And since I've made it a habit to always eat in a healthy manner when working, for me the workplace has turned into a healthy haven of nutrition and the occasional mini-workout.
