Climbing The Stairs

I was becoming fat day by day, and there was no exercise in my Office Style Hospitality Work. I was working in a  5-star hotel but in an office sitting all day deciding the price of a room. There used to be a whole 5-star buffet spread in Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner for all employees which added to my fat much more. If I chose Salad, I would choose a continental salad and add a lot of dressing and if I chose the main course it will be a non-vegetarian one with a lot of fat and to add to that a sweet dish or a dessert.

I was fluffing day after day and with the mental pressure at work and those late working hours it was nearly impossible for me to exercise for an hour and I used to come home relax, freshen up and sleep. In the hotel industry, the operations people like the bell boys, waiters, housekeepers and so on have a lot of physical work. When there is someone who sits whole day they have a lot of mental pressure and only a person who has experienced this will understand that. I do.

So, walking was on my agenda. I walked 3 kilometers from office daily but it made no difference. 3 kilometers were a piece of cake and the fat burned was just its cherry. So, I starting talking advice from many people and the diet option was always ignored by me because I can’t be only on raw vegetables all day. I didn’t want to reduce my food I wanted to reduce my fat through exercise.

One day my Mom asked our neighbor about her achievements on weight loss as she had reduced a lot of weight. She said never walk on the street just like that as you walk parallel to the ground and the result is minimal. She said that she used to climb up the stairs 3 times daily and saved a lot of time. This was it and my mom made me climb the stairs.

Climbing once was really tiring and I was gasping like I would die. A few days after I came to two times a day and I repeated this and I lost 4 kilograms in a month. I didn’t continue this as I am a very lazy person but yes climbing the stairs 4 floors up and down each day twice worked for me and it only took 5 to 10 minutes.

I recommend this to everyone as climbing stairs require more than double the energy if compared to walking. In your day to day life, skip the elevator and climb the stairs as it will bring some good to your health like burning fats, good heartbeat or just getting used to climbing the stairs without gasping.
