5 ways to sneak fitness into your day

5 Ways to Fit Fitness into Your Day

In today's world we are all super busy. Sometimes we barely have enough time to spend 5 minutes alone let along fit in a work out.   Below are some easy ways to sneak fitness into your day.

Walk! Walk whenever you can! Park at the end of the parking lot, take the stairs, get up and get your own drink, walk, walk, walk.

Clean your house. Yes, I said it. Doing chores is a great way to burn calories and get your housework done. You can burn over 100 calories sweeping, mopping or vacuuming for half an hour. You will burn even more if you are like me and dance around the house as you are cleaning!

Watch TV!  BWHAHA it is not what you think but we all watch tv, it is a staple in most houses, so when you are watching use the commercials to your advantage. Get up off the couch and do jumping jacks, crunches, squats, lunges etc.

Do the yard work. This is another chore that many of us dread (at least I know I do) but it can be a great calorie burner. Go out mow the yard, weed your flower bed, weed eat, plant new plants, all burn tons of calories.

Play with your dog/kids/friends!  Go outside with them! Play chase! Play tag! Just get moving with your children and you will reap the benefits of better health and worn out kids or dogs!  Have a friend meet you at the park and pretend you are kid again. Play play play!

Figure out what works for you  and  get moving whenever you have a few spare moments. Don’t miss an opportunity! You’ll feel better for it!

Have a very fit day!
