When you can't workout for the day because of errands or you just don't feel like it. Remember that everything you have to do is burning calories, even bathing is burning calories. Shopping, cooking, putting away groceries burning calories. If I am sitting and watching a movie I fidget, get up at the commercials and walk to the kitchen and back, still burning calories. Even cleaning the bathroom, yuck, burning calories.
