How to live a healthier, happier lifestyle while being in the professional services industry

I started my weight loss journey and I lost 2 kilos in the first week, 1 kilo in the second and non this week. Is this normal? I have just cut down on my calories and I haven’t worked out. Is this sustainable? I’ve been trying to lose weight for a long time

What’s a good swim distance for a cardio work out? I am new to it and just did a mile and it took me a while. Not sure what I should be targeting.

😭used to run 5-7 km regularly and easily for a good 2 months, then stopped for 1 month due to quarantine, and now I can barely reach 3k again! Experienced runners, does this happen to you as well ? How long of a pause before you start seeing a deterioration in stamina

I’ve recently accepted the fact I’m a functioning addict. Anyone here who has struggled with addiction and was able to or trying to get sober, willing to speak with me? While, I’m working with professionals to get clean through therapy, I’d appreciate speaking with someone who is in a similar career to understand how they made it work and genuinely feel supported in this struggle.

Haven’t worked out in about two months and I feel like there’s no point to it anymore. My muscle feels like it melted away. How can I get back into it without beating myself over the workouts I was once able to do but can’t anymore?

Any recommendations for desk exercise equipment such as mini treadmill, stationary bike, etc? Would love to burn some extra calories on these endless conference calls. Cheaper the better!

Went to the gym at 6am, now I'm ready for a nap. Any tips for working out in the mornings and have a productive day? Or does it just take some time to get my body used to it?

Month 5 of 20/4 intermittent fasting. Down 25 pounds to ~170 lbs (stabilized there) M/53. WFH was hard but keeping fridge and cupboards from temptations (and still no booze for three months) has helped. It can be done--miss ice cream! but eating healthy in the 4-hour window. Two cups of black coffee/lots of water btw 9 pm and 5 pm. Doable folks. Don't give up. But am not exercising from home (just long walks 2x a week) due to intense work. Need to but hard to get back on exercise saddle.

I’ve been doing 30 min HITT workouts 4-6 times a week. I haven’t lost any weight and I eat pretty healthy. Any guidance on when i should start seeing results? Maybe I’m just impatient, it’s been two weeks

How much weight do I need to use in workouts to see results? Specifically in glutes and arms. Looking to slim/tone arms and get a bigger butt. Will 2 5-lb dumbbells do anything? (F/125)

Is there an instant ramen/noodle brand that uses genuinely whole wheat? Need quick but healthy carbs for soup. I've been using Asha since they marketed theirs as the healthy option but turns out...
