Health Nut - Keep Moving

Photo credit: keepcalm-o-matic.co.uk

I am quite unfortunate when it comes to being active the whole day. My work is a desk-job kind of thing so I only get to enjoy walking or other strenuous activities when I have to go to other buildings in the compound. So, burning calories is quite difficult to achieve. However, studies show that even the slightest movement or activity can trigger calorie-burning action. For example, using the stairs instead of the lift, running or sprinting towards the restroom or walking to another room where your colleagues are instead of calling them. These are little things which can also add up on your weight loss goals.

Keep moving! If you cannot do an hour stretch of intensive exercise due to lack of time, try squeezing 10-20 minutes of running, brisk-walking, jogging, aerobics or any exercise routine that you do. Try to include 2-3 minutes of sprint as intervals and you'll be surprised to know that these little things will add up to something in the long run.

  3. Hi Ria,

    I also need to get moving, masyado na ako lumalaki :) Sorry I haven't been around lately to visit ha. We are so busy with the construction of the house and the farm activities.

    Hope all is well with you.
