Every week, we’re sharing ideas and stories about wellness-enhancing activities to boost your energy and vitality. This week, Peak Instructor Sandra Corbett share her story about how a standing desk at work helped her lose stubborn pounds and get rid of back and neck pain!
“Since I started working in an office I gained 10lbs I just could not get rid of…
As many of you all know I still teach and I workout 6-7 days a week.
My eating has never changed, I love carbs!!
“Bread Give Me Bread!” ?
Always my weakness ??
But having a sitting job made it really hard to lose the weight, with only getting 1 or sometimes 2 hours a day at the gym to lose those lbs. My body was use to exercising 5-8 hours a day!!!
As I said before I started having a lot of back and neck issues. I have been involved in 3 car accidents, thrown my back involving total bed rest.
With that said, the only thing that I did different in the last 12 months was I finally got a standing desk to help with me neck/back issues.
I don’t weight myself, I hate scales.
The only time I get weighed is during health screenings.
With that said, I found out today I am 5lbs less than I was in the last 4 Years!!!!!!
In my book, that’s Huge Progress ??
I had my health screening last year and again today.
So 2 things that really contribute to a Healthier Lifestyle for an office person, exercise and a standing desk!!”
Sandra teaches a variety of formats, including Kettle-bell and the new “Queenax Force” at the West Bank Landing. Thanks for sharing Sandra!
