Exercise that is not structured exercise...Happy Hollies Blog

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Thinking about this Blog Challenge, I guess I do a lot more than I thought. Things that I usually don't even think about:

Laundry ~ carrying heavy laundry baskets to and from the laundry room and then to the dressers & closets to be put away.

Dishes ~ every night, loading and unloading the dishwasher. Bending up and down, and up and down.

Vacuuming ~ at least twice a week, lugging the vacuum cleaner around the house from room to room.

Walking to and from my work parking lot ~ I have to park a city block away from my building, which is about two neighborhood blocks.

Some exercising I do randomly throughout the day that I consciencely think about:

Stairs ~ I try to not use the elevator at work as much. I get off a floor early so that I can walk the stairs for the last floor.

Sitting at my desk ~ after I've sat at my desk for an hour, focused and concentrating on my work at hand, I will get up and walk around the floor.

Watching TV ~ during commercials I get up and do some light cleaning, picking things up that the kids or puppy leave laying around. And I don't have to worry, usually by the next commercial, there's more to pick up cause my puppy will pull all of his toys out right after I pick them all up. He thinks it's a game.

So that's pretty much it. The little things I do during the day to stay moving.

    What a great list. I have a family (dog included) that keeps me busy picking up stuff.

    emoticon list of ways to sneak in exercise. That's funny about the puppy thinking that you putting away his toys is a game! Thanks for sharing and keep up the great work!

    It is crazy when you stop and think about how much you actually do in a day and how many calories you actually burn. That was where the inspiration for one of my Mad Dieter Blog came from after using a calorie burn calculator on Web MD. Enjoy your next few days off
