Quick Tips For Living On The Go

Putting Humpty Together Again

For the past few weeks I have been watching someone in my office do something I think is strange but now I am jumping on that wagon because it’s going to A) save me a hell of a lot of time and B) give me more time to sleep.

I usually prepare my breakfast for the next day, the evening before. Does this make sense? Well, I spend all this time making my favourite breakfast (omelettes). Preparing the ingredients, cutting, chopping and whisking.Denslow's_Humpty_Dumpty_pg_5

For a few weeks I have been watching this guy bring all these ingredients (good vegetables) to work and making an omelette in the microwave. I thought it was crazy but now I see that it can save me so much time and get me to bed earlier instead of slaving away in the kitchen.

Here’s how it works:

Ingredients

  • Egg whites or with yolk (which ever you prefer)
  • 1 tablespoon shredded mozzarella cheese, ham, peppers, onion
  • Then add whatever other vegetables you like – spinach, mushrooms, even asparagus.

Directions

  • Take the eggs and place it in a bowl!
  • Mix in the other ingredients.
  • Place in microwave.
  • Heat for 2-3 minutes (depending on the strength of your microwave).
  • Let cool 30 seconds – 1 minute.

So, just pack your ingredients the night before, leave it on the kitchen counter and grab them on your way to work. It takes only 2 minutes to prepare and even less to gather the ingredients!

The Office Secret

I was visiting a good friend of mine, who is a rugby player and has an awesome physique, and we were talking about doing home exercises. I am very keen on the idea and am willing to do anything to get into shape. But I mentioned to him that I don’t have any equipment. He says to me that you DON’T NEED it! Well…at least at first! Until you can get a set of dumbbells, do some resistance training which uses your own body strength!

All good and well but when do I find the time to do all this? “At the office” he says…WHAT?

  • Set a goal for how many push ups you would like to do in one day.
  • Divide them equally between the amounts of hours you spend at work.
  • Find a place in your office that is quiet and where you can do your push ups.
  • Do the allotted amount every hour.

I was stunned at the simplicity and the practicability of the idea! I have found my space in the office already.
