My readers often tell me they would like to exercise more. They know it's part of a healthy lifestyle, but they simply don't have time to visit the gym three or four times a week. In today's blog I'm going to tell you seven easy ways to burn extra calories without an intense workout. They don't cost you anything and you can start today.
When I finally got serious and decided to drop the extra pounds I was carrying around, I knew that I'd have to exercise as well as eat healthy. It was the combination of a good, healthy diet and consistent exercise that helped me drop 50 pounds. But it wasn't always easy. This is one complaint I often hear from my readers: "How can I find time to work-out with a job, and kids, and all my other responsibilities. I'd love to work-out, but I simply don't have the time to go to the gym four or five times a week."
I sympathize with this dilemma. It is often hard to find time for an hour-long exercise routine with a busy schedule.

Everyone can squeeze in four minutes of exercise time if they choose to make the commitment.

I refuse to go anywhere but home after exercising, so workouts during the work day are out of the question for me. If I can't shower, freshen up, and do my makeup it's not happening. Last thing I need is to show up to my job looking like a sweaty, hot mess!Continue Reading >
