I’ve recently acquired a fitbit. I thought I moved a lot during the day, but boy did the fitbit sure prove me wrong! I realized it even more when I entered a work contest. The simple goal was to achieve 10,000 steps a day. Some days that wasn’t so difficult. Other days, it was 8PM and I realized I had 2,000 to 4,000 steps to go! Yikes!
At that hour of the evening you are ready to settle in and watch some must see TV, can we say Scandal?! So here’s a quick tip. Instead of sitting while you catchup on your favorite TV shows, get moving! That’s right. Walk in place, do jumping jacks, squats, push-ups, etc. You’ll be distracted by Olivia Pope’s sneaky tactic; so you won’t know you’re exercising, you’ll hit your 10,000 step minimum, and you’ll be thanking yourself when you fit back into your skinny jeans.
Get to it gladiators!
