Work Out Tips with out Exercising!

I will be the first to say that I DO not like to work out.  I envy people that run, go to gym or even walk on a daily, weekly basis.  I am just to busy to find the time to do it.  With being a WAHM plus having to do the normal everyday up keep on the home and keep kids busy and also have fun with them I find it hard to squeeze in the time.  No matter what size you are a work out is great for you health though.  Even at my smallest size I still noticed that I had no muscle to me.  My husband was doing all the “manly” labor around the home that I could’ve done (well some).

So I started thinking about things that actually are a “work out” with out it being a typical exercise!  AND best thing is you are getting stuff done around the house!! BONUS!!

  1. MOWING:  You get your walking and pushing… so muscle activity right there!!
  2. WEEDING:  I burn a sweat weeding… try doing squats instead of sitting or bending over.
  3. PRUNING:  YES,  my arms are always sore the next two days after pruning trees!
  4. WASHING VEHICLES: Get cars clean and good arm exercise!
  5. EDGING:  Just to hold the darn thing for awhile takes a work out on the arms
  6. PAINTING:  Whether painting your fence, play house, swing set, house…  all a great exercise!!
  7. SWEEPING:   Needs to be done right!  Sweep your heart away!
  8. VACUUMING:  Do I need to say more??
  9. MOPPING FLOORS:  Worse then vacuuming but someone has to do it!  😉
  10. PRESSURE WASHING:  Perfect for hot days and my arms really feel like jello afterwards.  lol
