So I’ve been thinking, that I’m not an exercise type of woman, nor am I ‘manual labor’ either. I do so many ‘activities’ that have absolutely no calorie eliminating elements at all. In a perfect world, sure I could wake up at the butt-crack of dawn to exercise, make quick healthy dinners and be in bed by 9 P.M. Who are we kidding, have you seen the size of breast that God thought would look good on me? Try jogging while having double G’s stuff to your chest, heck, try doing any kind of exercise with those; good luck!
I thought I’d ask you, my blog readers, what non-exercise activities do you wish would keep you fit? I’ve asked people who I work with, my kids and plenty of my friends and family so I’ve compiled a list I’d like to share.
#1. Sleeping. Can you imagine how much more beneficial sleeping would be if you could sleep off the dimples and jigglies? After my brain shuts off and my bladder finally falls asleep, it would be awesome if then my metabolism jumped into gear and started burning away the tall carmel mocha I had for breakfast, the chicken nuggets I ate at lunch and the second helping of lasagna I plowed through at dinner; life would be grand.
#2. Reading. In the last 3 years I’ve read an entire book shelf of books, filled my Kindle with at least 47 books that I’ve read. I’d love it with every page I lost some kind of weight from some portion of my frame. I’d have an excuse to stay up until the wee hours finishing the last chapter and I’d be super smarter too. I see it as a win-win situation.
#3. Waiting in line. What about every time you had to wait in line the benefit would be another pound effortlessly removed, a dress size lower. Think about all the lines we stand in, wait in, and have to deal with. “Your que in line is #4” or “your estimated hold time will be less than 5 minutes.” How about standing in line at Wal-mart, poof goes away that cupcake you had at lunch. The dreaded doctors office. Sure you made an appointment but who ever gets called in and seen in less than 45 minutes. But what if your patience was rewarded by the scale dropping in numbers.
I’m just saying, I could seriously be on to something if we could collectively put our heads together and make this happen. Wow! think about this, what if you were standing in line reading a book, dude that’s like double points. Falling asleep standing in line, even better.
I want to know what activities you’d come up with. It was a pleasure compiling my list. Most men were predictable but as you may know, (and if you don’t you can google it), sex is an exercise.
Here are a few that did make my list but didn’t make my blog explanation. Gaming, Driving, Cooking, Watching TV, and house cleaning, (though I’m sure the last one burns calories too).
