How to turn chores into an easy weight loss routine
With Spring Break coming to an end for most students, and with Spring in full bloom, it’s by time everybody gets into shape to look their best during the sunshine weather.
Chores are something not everybody may like which is totally okay, but, that doesn’t mean you can’t turn them into a fun game of losing weight while keeping your house clean.
Most these days own some sort of Mp3 player which is great — let that be your best friend and let it help you get your groove on while you’re dusting or mopping floors. Who says there is something wrong with a little funk while you are doing what you do on a daily basis?
My best tips for successfully shedding a few lbs while completing your chores would be:
- Do a few squats while doing dishes. (works on the buttox, and legs. Great for obtaining a stronger lower body).
- While dusting or wiping down counter-tops (or other surfaces) pull one leg back and hold it against your butt for at least 30 seconds at a time. [building hamstrings].
- If it’s gorgeous outside take a stroll, take the dog for a walk, pick up your kids from school [only works if it's nearby] on foot.
- Hungry? Need something from the store? A great way to get in your daily walk is to walk to the corner store if, say, you’re in search of a quick snack or refreshment.
This isn’t just something moms could do — it’s something for the whole family. We know everybody wants to look bikini & swim trunk ready for the new season.
