Reaching and maintaining a healthy balance between work and home life is a challenge for many people. Most professionals I speak with admit that they don't take the time to get out of the office for a breath of fresh air at lunch time; they often, in fact mostly, eat at their desk on less than healthy food and the net result is that many are mal-nourished, whether they are over or underweight. If you are a professional with a home office, the challenge for balance becomes even greater. I know my greater challenge to drink my litre of water is on the days I work from home. It also gets easier on those days to just grab something from the fridge and the piece of dark chocolate becomes very tempting when I have not planned for healthy vegetables.
If you are struggling with your weight, it's probably got to do with a)stress; b) lack of exercise and c) what you eat. Scrutinize your lifestyle and choose one area where you want to start making changes. It's possible to be successful and healthy.
