Many of us have said our goals are to get healthy this year. Sure, most of us say “lose weight” but let’s focus on the bigger picture – losing extra weight will help us be healthy, just as getting more physically fit will. So, let’s have a little fun and find ways to motivate ourselves to move more.
Here are some ways I am planning on burning 100 (or more) calories:
- Walking around the neighborhood. I love going for walks, and I miss the fall when the evenings were cool and sunny and I could go walking after work. I’m looking forward to that again this spring, but at least I can enjoy a nice stroller stroll with Baby H on the weekends.
- Chasing Baby H around the yard. Again, on warmer, sunnier weekends, and definitely when it dries up (because all this rain lately has made our yard so swampy). But isn’t that a fun way to burn some calories?
- My elliptical machine. A 20-minute workout on my elliptical burns quite a few calories, and really what is 20 minutes? Now as long as Baby H stays entertained with some building blocks, I might make this an evening routine.
What are some fun ways you’re burning calories and staying on track with your resolutions?
