Move Throughout The Day

This Sparked Me!

When I was using my Bodybugg, I found that I often burned more calories doing things like shopping, cleaning, running errands etc. than I did spending the whole day being sedentary at work and then hitting the gym for an hour.

While it's important to get your heart rate up for cardiovascular health, a lot of calories can be burned just doing everyday tasks.

    Is a Bodybugg a pedometer?

    Oh I hear ya. I have actually been taking my 15 minute breaks and going for a walk. I also make sure to get up 2-3 times an hour and walk around my office, filing papers. I find as many excuses as I can to get up and move!

    This is totally my secret! I move, move and move all day. Laundry, walking the dogs, vacuuming, dusting, yard work, running errands-these are all my secret to burning calories.
