Irish Dance Diet - Sneaking in more activity



I'm struggling a bit this week because it seems like I'm doing everything right (two 500 calorie workouts a day, salads for lunch, limiting sweets) and yet the scale is not showing it.  And as we all know, if I'm doing what I've always done, I'll get what I've always got.  That means I need to step it up.

Ways to sneak more activity into your week:

1-Park at the far end of the parking lot and spend a few minutes walking to the store.

2-Take your dog for a walk or go out with the kids and throw a frisbee around.

3-Do some cleaning.  Did you know that housework can burn a lot of calories?

4-Purchase a simple pedometer to keep track of how much or how little you have been out and about.  If you are low on steps, take a walk at the end of the day.

5-Take the stairs instead of the elevator.

6-While watching TV, do stretches or work out on an exercise machine.

7-Dance-it feels like play but it's actually a work out. :)

  1. Hi! Love your blog! I wanted to suggest a "Paleo Diet" to you. Google it for more information. Paleo + weights should give you results like you want. More protein, less carbs. Good luck! Can't wait to see you accomplish your goals!
