Burn 100 Calories Right Now
Getting tired of your usual workout routine? Don’t sweat it. (Pun intended.) Next time you have a free moment, try one of these activities and burn a quick 100 calories. (Source: Best Health Magazine.)
- Take a stroll for 36 minutes. If you’re feeling really ambitious, hold 2-pound weights while you walk for an added muscle-toning boost.
- Push a stroller for 30 minutes. Look at this way: It’s an added incentive to babysit your niece and nephew.
- Climb stairs for 14 minutes. I recommend blasting the theme from Rocky on your iPod for some motivation.
- Wallpaper or paint a wall for 44 minutes. This is a great excuse if you’ve been meaning to redecorate.
- Iron clothes for 39 minutes. Perhaps this is one you should pass onto your husband/boyfriend/significant other…it’s about time he ironed his own shirts.
- Clean your house for 35 minutes. Your mom would be thrilled!
- Wash your car for 20 minutes until it’s squeaky clean. Now, if only you could restore that new car smell…
- Shovel snow for 15 minutes. And then reward yourself by building your own snow fortress.
- Laugh! If something is that hilarious to have you giggling for 38 minutes.
- Blast your favorite tunes and dance around for 14 minutes like you’re in your own music video.
