Exercise Without Knowin It ..KewL

I know. I know. Not everyone luvvvvvvvvvs exercise like moi.excercise.gif
Soooooooo here are some ways to burn those calories without even realizin yar.

Exercise Without Knowin It eh?

Some sneaky tips. Heh.excerciseani.gif

Get Wet
1. Wash your car.
Embrace the summer heat—with a hose: Burn calories and make your car look beautiful as you wash, dry and get it (and you) buff.
How to Exercise Without Even Knowing It

Get Dirty
2. Do your own yard work. Tell the teenage kid from down the street that you’ll mow your own lawn—and pay him to make some iced tea instead. While you’re at it, weed the vegetable garden and toss some new mulch around the perennials out front.

Take a Break
3. Reinstate the “water cooler.” Everyone needs a periodic work break, but instead of e-mailing witty quips to your buddy in the next office, walk to the water cooler to dish about the dude who got kicked off Project Runway last night.

Get Busy
4. Get started on that home-improvement project. Painting, hammering, hoisting—it’s all exercise (some of it moderate to vigorous, we’d say). And don’t discount all the walking that you’ll do as you wander around the big home-improvement warehouse looking for that specific hinge (or someone who can help you find it).

Take a Walk
5. Dog sit. For a puppy, ideally. You won’t be able to sit on the couch for long—unless you don’t care about your carpet—or your shoes.

Picnic
6. Eat al fresco. Pack a picnic—one that requires schlepping a big ice-filled cooler across a field or a park. Bring a ball or a Frisbee for after-eating activities.

Sooooooooo, couch taters, which one did ya choose?

Whaddya mean ya didn’t choose? Pick one. Pick one.excerciseani-buddy.gif

O.K……….Washing your car are ya?

Eliminate THIS method first k?

And THIS one:

-Gitcher yerself need a steady supply of water, a good ole dirt-free cloth, and a proper car wash soap. No Dove. No scented body splash.

-Wash from the top down to reduce the chance of scratching that lovely finish.
-None of that harsh rubbing which is only going to grind dirt right into the finish, leaving scratches everywhere. Tsk tsk.dunce9.gif

-Finally………Be generous with the rinse water to carry away all that nasty dirt.

How’s that comin from someone who never washed a car in her life? ha.

Yard work anyone?
Sorry, can’t help ya much there, me bein a tried and true City Girl.

This is when we dial 1-800-Gardener- Plz- help. Ha.

Home Improvement
Uh huh.


Where’s my contractor?!

Water Cooler Break


Oh. I’m down with that.

But ya gotta actually walk to the water cooler k. Faster dude.

And um………Don’t take the candy bar witcha.
candy.gif

Walkin the dog to burn calories?

That’s right. Choose a fast puppy.

Psssssssssst. THIS doesn’t count dude.

Or..THIS..ya wise guy. (and you know who you are)

Picnic eh?

Now, if ya choose this one, ya best be nibblin on veggies and tossin that frisbee not scarfin down fried chicken and napping k? cake.gif

Alright now……….Who’s got ‘clean up’?

Now, don’t ya feel sooooooooo much better?

O.K. O.K. O.K. sheesh…, g’head..Eat somethin. eat-smile.gif

    LOL! You are so creative, Angel! I do the gardening thing and plenty of it. I’ve often said If people in town who are paying to work out at a gym would just come out to my farm and work twice a week they would burn off the fat! No one has taken me up on it though, unfortunately!

    No new post up, Angel. Just thought I’d drop in and see what you are up to. I’m probably going to wind up being a weekend blogger… I haven’t got enought time to keep up the pace I have been setting.

    Blessings!

  2. Mustang says:

    Not to worry, Angel. The Obama administration will solve this problem for us. Along with banning SUVs and placing federal restrictions on air conditioning thermostats, he will also require all Americans to eat less food. Ergo . . . fit, happy, healthy citizens. Problem solved.

  3. KKarLmM says:

    My exercise regiment is quite simple…
    Multilple reps with the fork & spoon:
    to lift the pasta and the ice cream up to my mouth.
    Then a few squats:
    to pick up the newspaper from the floor and the remote off the t.v stand.
    and finally a situp or two:
    to get a comfortable position in my bed with my pillow in its proper place for a good nights sleep……you know how exhausting all this activity can be..

    I don’t have a car, so I have to walk if I want to go to the store. Not bad, plus I save a fortune on gas. The down side is that I go through a pair of sneakers every few months.

    Well I hate all that equipment.

    I walk all the time everywhere. I also lift hand weights to build upper body strength and to tone. Finally I practice Qigong – it not only relaxes you and destresses you – it tones you up, helps you lose weight – and detoxifies your body.

    What they knew thousands of years ago work much better than all this modern day hype.

  34. Perri Nelson says:

    Use a cotton cloth to wash that car, one without synthetic fibers in the stitching. Polyester and nylon scratch paint too.

    Also, use a surfactant designed for washing paint. Don’t use dish soap. Rinse thoroughly.

    The best secret for a good wash though — purchase and learn how to use a clay bar — and replace it after every few cleanings. You’ll need to wax the car after using the clay bar though. It will remove everything foreign, including the wax (and undocumented workers?) from the paint.

    Avoid polish! It slowly removes paint layers.

    Wax using an orbital machine, or better yet, hand wax it!
