1.)    Stair laps: every time you encounter a flight of stairs jog up and down them 3-5 times depending on how steep and how many steps there are.  This will provide a little extra movement that can go a long way.

2.)    Stand whenever you can: stand as often as possible. For example: on the phone watching TV, reading.

3.)    Dance During Chores: When washing dishes, sweeping/mopping, picking up clothes and/or other messes, jam out to music and dance.  This makes chores more fun and dancing burns a lot of calories.

4.)    Don’t eat in front of the TV: By watching TV you don’t realize what and how much you’re consuming.  Sit at a table and pace yourself.

5.)    Pour food into a Bowl:  This helps you regulate how much you eat.  Instead of eating out of a bag of chips pour them into a bowl so you can see the proper intake.

6.)    Substitute One Food a Day: Simple, take one bad food or snack out of your daily diet and substitute it with a fruit or vegetable. You can also substitute soda with water instead.

Good Luck!

    Alright, I’m officially a fan of your blog. You aren’t telling us to go out and run 10 miles like some fitness blogs might do. You’re saying “Hey, dance around your kitchen”. You’re giving us ways to improve our lifestyle that are simple, yet effective.

    Like I said in my previous comment, I really enjoy the variety of your posts. Keeps me guessing!

    Looking forward to the next one, Michelle!
