It’s All About the Little Things

Coach Stefanie here!

Let’s face it, adding exercise to your already busy schedule can be hard. But one thing we often don’t realize is that the little things add up.

I don’t like exercising but I know being active is important for healthy weight loss. So I do a few simple things to get more activity in my life. If you do them alone, once in a while they don’t make much difference, but combined and consistently doing them will add up!

1.) Park further away

Ever notice how people fight for a parking spot right next to the door? But just a couple of steps away there are tons of spaces? Take one of them. Every time I go to the supermarket or the store, I make it a point to park further away to get a few extra steps in.

2.) Take the stairs

I get it, stairs are tough. And my office is on the 16th floor…no way can I get up that many steps. But my building also has a parking garage entry. Only one of the 4 elevators goes all the way to the garage, the rest stop at the lobby. While the others stand there waiting for the one elevator, I take the stairs up to the lobby and hop on one of 4 choices. I do this twice a day. I also take the stairs on other occasions when I can.

3.) Leave your office for short walks

I have a typical office job where I sit at my desk all day. So I make it a point to get up and walk around. I have a small printer in my office and we have big printers down the hall. Guess where I’m printing to? Right! I print to the big printer so I have a reason to take a little stroll down the office.

I have also found it helpful to have a Fitbit or smart watch that will alert me if I haven’t made my hourly step goal. That way I can get up and walk around instead of sitting down for hours.

    Hi when I used the barcode on the foods I’m eating it comes up with a number for bites but when I track the foods some of them come up with 0 bites. Is this because the foods that I’m eating are so high in protein. I read comments on Facebook and YouTube if you’re not careful on the conquer the cravings plan your calories can be too low if you’re not careful. Thank you
