14. You Didn’t Get Your Butt Up
If you work an office job or if you’re at home binge-watching Netflix, chances are that you haven’t stood up for hours, let alone actually walked anywhere. On average, we sit down for sixty-seven hours a week and barely spend any time moving at all. Due to this, we burn a hundred fewer calories a day and end up adding ten extra pounds a year. Try to stay active during your day by moving around and getting exercise.
13. You Don’t Know What You Weigh Today
Checking the scale every day can sometimes seem pointless if you haven’t been focusing on losing weight. Simply working out could potentially stall your weight loss in terms of pounds while also reducing fat. Regardless, it’s a good thing to check your weight every week to keep track of your goals and recognize how to accomplish them faster. It is preferable to weigh-in on Wednesday since your weight will naturally fluctuate during the week.
12. You Drank Bottled Water
Drinking water on the go is something we should all try to do since getting dehydrated is no laughing matter. But, bottled water is not the best way to go about it. The plastic in bottled water contains Bisphenol A (BPA), which is linked to obesity and storing belly fat. To get around this, try buying a reusable water bottle that is free of BPA. They are better for your body and the environment, so it is a win-win situation.Related: Bottled Water: One of the Largest Scams in History?
