6 sneaky ways to be a lean machine

 
The workout time you clock does make a difference, but so does the movement you do (or don’t do) every single minute of the day. Studies have found that overweight people were more prone to sitting, while leaner people were more likely to get up. Want to tone up the sneaky way? Here are some get-your-booty-movin’ tips:

 

1. If you are watching endless hours of TV, know that you’re likely to pack on pounds. Get up and walk around your house (not to get the Doritos!) during every commercial.

 

2. Volunteer to take out the garbage, help mom unload the groceries from the car and walk the dog around the block to burn some extra calories.

 

3. Don’t use the remote. Get up off your bum to change the TV channel or volume.

 

4. At school, don’t use your cell phone to track down your friend. Walk around the hallways and find her so you can share that hot gossip you just heard.

 

5. Hooked on video games? Try Just Dance 3.

 

6. Instead of sitting through a two-hour movie with your group of friends this weekend, go to the roller rink. Skating is great exercise!
