I use the zest of limes, lemons and oranges to put in my Greek Yogurt to jazz up the taste and voila, no extra calories. I have also used the fresh juice squeezed into the yogurt to have a bit lighter yogurt and still get nutrition. Again very few calories and GREAT taste. Also add a small sprinkle of nutmeg or cinnamon for great taste as well. Make your taste buds dance.
I take a moment when getting out of my office chair to do three squats before moving out of my office. luckily I do not live in cubey land, or I may not have the courage to do the same. I also do some squats against the wall with my door shut just before I leave the office for the day. Usually 15.
when packing to move, take an 8x11 sheet of paper, or smaller if the box is smaller, and write on what is in the box, then tape the paper to the top of the box when you are sealing it. alternative is to use clear plastic containers whenever possible so that you can see what is in the container. try to pack like things together, ie. linens, kitchen etc. as well, use socks, scarves, shirts etc. to wrap around fragile items. happy housewarming.
When I head out to run, I have to walk to the track that I run on, and so don't count that fast paced warm up walk as my time running. When I swim, I say that I started 5 minutes later than I did, and go for 5 minutes longer, putting on an extra 10 minutes, which doesn't seem like much but by the end of the week that is 60 minutes of exercise...that I didn't truly count, but was there. Helps make up for some of those 'oops' eating things during the week.
