20 Workouts You Didn't Know You Were Doing

Do you consider yourself lazy? Give yourself some credit! Odds are you’re burning calories throughout the day in unexpected ways. Your friend may rub her 45 minute stairmaster session in your face, but if she sat on her butt the rest of the day, you might actually be the one getting the bigger workout. Next time you get a finger wagged at you for not hitting the gym, you can come back with, “hey! I went to the playground today!” Remember, it really is the little things that count, add up, and make a big difference. Just like that slice of chocolate cake may be bad, but that hourly handful of m&m’s- worse… Here are 20 workouts you didn’t even know you were getting (if not, they’ll sound so fun you’ll start doing them today!)



Not in the Mood... Quickie Workout in Bed

We’re not always in the mood. I’m not even always in the mood… to exercise. Which is why working out on a bed is the best possible option. It takes almost zero oomph to motivate to move. Just start pulsing your leg. Commit to it, get through it, use your mind to move your body. In the end, you never regret working out, but you do regret not working out because your “not in the mood.” Really, it’s those “not in the mood” days when you workout anyway, that says the most about you and your strength- your mental strength, your emotional stamina, your ability to overcome obstacles (your own head telling you not to do something is a major obstacle). Because… even if you’re not in the mood, you can always slip in a quickie.
