Everyone likes looking good. And sometimes we workout without even knowing it! Here are a few tips and tricks to enhance your daily routine that might help you shed some pounds and tone that bod!
Cleaner Teeth and Stronger Quads
They say to brush your teeth for two minutes, right? Usually you’re doing nothing during that time other than checking out your bed head or noticing how fabulous your beard is looking. Take those 120 seconds and do air squats, wall sits, or lunges. It’ll add up – and be harder than you think… #hotlegs #freshbreath
Walk And Talk In Meetings
Don’t sit down at the conference room table, take it outside and walk that booty while you’re brainstorming with your colleague[s]! Need to make notes? Include Siri in on that walk to take the notes for you!
The more you drink, the more you’ll have to get up and use the restroom. So, more walking and flushing those toxins out – voila! We challenge you to a gallon day a day. Think you’ve got it in you? We do. #twobirdsonestone
Dance... All Day
Don’t hold it all in; we know you are lovin’ all over that new Beyoncé song. While I would highly encourage blaring that music and dancin’ all over the place in public, it may not be reasonable if you work at a, say, library. So, do it before work, while you’re with your kiddos, and especially on your way down the driveway to get the trash can and mail. #coolkidontheblock
Walk That Extra Mile
Park at the back of the lot – every. single. time. Open your blinds in the morning, but not in order; front to back, left to right, then another one in the front, another in the back, and so on. Making the bed in the morning? Move from side to side for every single component; sheet, duvet, pillows, and all those pretty Pottery Barn ones, too. And, of course, always, always, always take the stairs. No matter what! Well, unless you’re carrying a kid… but, for the record, if you did, you get #kickbutt bonus points.
Think you can do it? Skip the e-message and walk over to your colleague to fill them in on the latest super-important-forward-worthy news. Meet ‘em at the water cooler. Walk to the post office and mail them some snail mail. Just move – and get off the computer for a few!
Kiss Your Way To Stronger Arms
Have a wee-one at home? Lay them down beneath you and kiss your way [via push-up] to fabulous arms. Warning: Don’t do so many that you wear yourself out and squish the little nugget. Have kids, but they’re too old for this? Have them sit on top of you while you’re getting your push-ups on; you get to play superhero and they get to laugh their belly off.
How do you secretly get your sweat on when you think no one is watching – especially you? Tell us so we can share the secret!
