31 Days of Fit- Sneak it In

Sometimes its hard to find the time to work out. We are busy, have other things to do, etc. There are a plethora of excuses we can use. So here are some easy ways to sneak in activity so you don't even realize you are doing it!

Do squats while brushing your teeth. It might take a few times to become coordinated enough to do this one, but what else are you doing with your lets while brushing? You can also do squats while pumping gas. I did this the other day, and while I felt a little silly, my thighs thanked me later. 

Do 10 leg lifts before getting out of bed in the morning. This will help you wake up, and it doesn't feel like exercise because your head is still on your pillow. 

While at work, if you spend a lot of time on the phone (and not typing) keep hand weights near by, and do bicep curls or shoulder presses while talking. 

As always, you can park farther away and walk, or take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator. 

Play with your dog or kids. Chasing a dog or a toddler can be hard work. Next time they are running around, chase them :)

So there you have it. 5 easy ways to sneak in exercise every day. For more easy "around the house" work out ideas, check out this awesome blog, VioletSage to see what she does around her house! She has some awesome tips!
