Tip #3: Add in "Workouts"

Dear Pursuers,
I hate doing long workouts. They're boring, tedious, and painful.That's usually why I try to do workouts that supply the best calorie burn for the shortest time. The other thing that I do is to incorporate excercises into my daily life. Instead of just sitting on the couch, break out the Wii and play a little Just Dance or The Michael Jackson Experience! It'll keep you on your feet and it's completely addictive, as you want to beat your score constantly. It doesn't feel like you're burning calories, but you are! No Wii? No problem! On comercials, find an excuse to go upstairs. On your way down, step on the stair below you, press down on it and lift your back leg, then place both feet on the top step and repeat on the other foot. Keep doing this to every single step. It actually, really tones your glutes and its easy and fast. Don't feel like doing that? Try a mini workout set to your shows.

Ex. (My favorite show is Doctor Who so I set it to that)
Every time someone says Doctor, do jump squats
Every time someone screams, do sit ups
Every time a companion solves a problem, do push ups
Every time the Doctor and companion start runnng, jog in place
Every time the Doctor goes on a tangent completely unrelated to everything the episode is about, jump rope.

Another idea is that you watch something that makes you want to get up and move. Like I always try to learn the steps of the dances in Dancing with the Stars. Also, singing burns some calories and works the abs. Try and sing along with Glee!
