Fat Tuesday is Mardi Gras, the festival New Orleans, Louisiana, is famous for. "Gras" is French for fat and "Mardi" is French for Tuesday. Our Fat Tuesday has nothing at all to do with the New Orleans festival. LOL - It's about feeling fat after a long holiday weekend full of cookouts and parties! Did you know that one Omaha steak hotdog has 20 grams of fat! Crazy huh!!! So now we have our first official summer holiday under our belt! But we still have graduations, birthdays, Fourth of July, and VACATIONS!!! Unless we get a grip now, there will be alot more fat Tuesdays and every other day of the week as well!
Here are some diet tips while at work:
When you arrive at work, don’t grab the closest spot to the office. Park farther away. This forces you to burn a few extra calories!
When you get to the building, skip the elevator!!! Climb the stairs.
Drink plenty of water!
Take a walk – the opposite direction of the vending machine – when a craving strikes!
Your office has a gym?! Take advantage!
Eating healthy can taste great, on your break go online and find new healthy recipes to try!
Please send us your tips!!! Going to take a walk now!!! :)
