I don’t have the time to work out as much as I should.
Sound familiar? Many of us are intimidated by taking on an exercise program for the exact reason that we expect to fail. That “all or nothing” approach will certainly prove us right.
The 100 calorie workout, are short activities that almost anyone can fit into their busy days.
Walk for 25 minutes
Take a short walk after lunch at work. There are so many opportunities to walk – take advantage of them!
Stairclimb for 10 minutes
Always try to take the stairs at work instead of the elevator. If your knees are wonky, try going up the stairs and taking the elevator down.
Go dancing for 20 minutes
You don’t have to go clubbing until the wee hours to dance (although, why not?); you can do it in your living room at home. If the family wants to join in, even better!
Do yard work for 20 minutes
Anything from raking, clearing brush, gardening, or other small projects that involve digging can be a great workout.
Do housework for 20 minutes
Vacuuming, mopping, and scrubbing are all good ways to burn calories without thinking about it.
Play with the kids for 30 minutes
A trip to the park, climbing on the jungle gyms, jump rope, tag in the back yard, even hide and seek.
It’s not always easy to find the time to for a dedicated workout session. In fact, it’s a lot easier to find excuses not to do them. But if you can shift your thinking about how you incorporate activity in your daily life. You will be amazed at how much better you will feel.
