Metabolism Slowing

Is it possible to fit exercise into one’s schedule on a regular basis when one works from eight o’clock to six o’clock? I am finding it difficult. Some of the other attorneys work until nine or ten o’clock or they come in to the office on weekends, putting in seventy hours a week, so I cannot complain. I didn’t know there were that many hours in a week. I’ve heard that when one has a real job and is tied down behind a desk, the metabolism drops through the floor.


  • I went to the gym this morning. Though I don't have to be at work until 9:30. You should get a membership to 24 hour and maybe you can drag me to the gym earlier. I'm trying the gym in the morning thing all week so we'll see how it goes.

  • This reminds me of my cute personal trainer. I need to bring him back to force myself doing exercise. The best part is boxing, it releases my anger cumulated doing office work 10 hours a day. Excerise hopefully make us live longer, but we should not live longer to just exercise and work. ;-(

  • What ever happened to working 9 to 5?

  • I have dropped 5 pounds in the past 2 weeks simply by eating 4 pieces of fruit throughout the day (apples, pears, etc.). I work way over 40 hours a week and it can seriously hamper my workout routine.

    I read that you can burn 300-500 calories a day if you keep some small amount of food in your stomach at all times. Digestion itself burns calories.

    I recently discovered that being over 30 sucks metabolism-wise.
