The week is so hectic, but it’s heading in to the weekend, which normally gives us all a little more time–we don’t have to be at work at 8am (unless there’s an appointment) and we can enjoy our time with our families.
Add in those bite sized calorie burners for the weekend!
I have a dog and walk a pretty brisk route around Montclair a few times a day, but at the weekend I try to burn an extra few calories by taking the longest route. I don’t mean going three miles out of the way, I mean that you can “play-chicken” to run across Valley Road to the store to get the milk, or you can go via the traffic lights the next block down.
You would be surprised how easy it is, and how these little bite-size additions to your day will improve your fitness. Think that’s not enough? Make that extra piece of your walk a short run.
Movie night fun!
In my house, Friday is movie night. We pop in a movie, pop in some popcorn, and relax after a long week. I’ve started adding some extra effort in to the trailers–so I thought you might too–by taking the cushion from the sofa and adding in some tricep dips or pressups. By the time the movie starts, I’ve watched the trailers and feel like I really deserve the rest!
Enjoy the weekend–and feel free to comment here, or direct-message me at @montclairNJfit to tell me how you did or ask a question!
Tidbit of the day:
Make some different choices at mealtimes without compromising taste: swap out toast and honey for cereal and milk or in the store this weekend pick up the egg-whites instead of egg beaters for a quick, tasty breakfast.
