I am by no means a fitness expert or coach, but I would like to share with you some easy tips that I’ve been doing to keep my body right especially on days when I am feeling extra lazy. I have tired all of these lazy girl fitness tips. In fact, I have seen myself lose weight just from these few tips! Let me know what does and doesn’t work for you.
1. Take the stairs whenever possible
I work in a building that requires stairs to get into our main office and my office is on the second floor. Daily, I’m averaging about 15-30 flights of stairs climbed. If you have the option to take stairs over an escalator or elevator, do it. This is a great way to get your body moving and your heart pumping.
2. Get out for a daily walk
I don’t have a dog, but I try to go on daily walks. I’ll go with a friend and instead of just talking about the day at home, we go for a walk and catch up. If you have a dog, you have more of a reason to go for a walk. If you don’t have a dog there are plenty of dog walking apps out there. You’re being active and earning some extra cash! Sounds like a win-win to me!
Another big thing that I’ve been really big into, are finding quick and easy workouts on Youtube. There are millions of options on there! My go-to is dance fitness type workouts. I hardly feel like I’m working out. Nothing beats dancing and listening to my favorite songs!
4. Daily Goals
I have talked to a few people about this one and it seems I’m not the only one that does this. So every time I receive a phone call, email, or use the restroom at work I do a set number of a certain exercise. For example, every time I use the restroom, I do squats. I have been doing this for about 3 months now and I can honestly see a difference. I started by doing 25 each time and then upped the number by 5 every time I felt like it was getting too easy. I’m now at 45 for each set. It’s a simple goal that is super easy and you’re still being active.
5. Set reminders
Being active at least once an hour is super important. Even if you just go for a quick walk around the house or office, you’re still up, your heart rate is elevated, and you’re burning calories. Set a reminder on your phone to get up at least once an hour. Your body will thank you later.
6. Try a free fitness classes
There are tons of free fitness classes that you can try at your local gyms. Bring a friend. Try something new. You just never know what you might enjoy!
