So every now and then, someone will say to me, “Bev, I think you exaggerate how much you eat.” And I’m always surprised because, first, why would I ever do that, and second, because it shows me the person doesn’t even notice that I’m constantly moving like a hummingbird.
Today, I wore my heart rate monitor for my workout (which I always do), while I was training clients (during which I demo moves but don’t do the workout because I’m coaching and watching form), on errands and in between sessions.
My calorie burn over an eight-hour period was 3,071. What’s my point?
Don’t just view your workouts as your only active time. Run up and down the stairs when you need things at home, park a bit further from the store door, walk your cart all the way back to the aisle, get up from your desk to stretch your legs and take a lap, remember that house cleaning is power work, etc., and so much more!
While I admit I’m freakishly active, I’ve learned my body loves to move and hates to sit still and let everything lock up. Don’t discount all the little things that can really add up to a big calorie burn; in fact, seize every opportunity to get that healthy body moving for a long time to come! 💪💖🙏
