Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

WIOW: Couch Potato Moves


I am all about fitting in your workout however you can. However, I’m not so much into accomplishing my daily workout while watching TV or cleaning the house.

You know what I’m talking about. The cheesy ones you see in fluffy magazines that also tell you that rock hard abs come in just three minutes a day.

Don’t get me wrong, I love to incorporate exercise into these activities, but I don’t consider them a workout.

I consider them bonus.

I don’t get too strenuous during TV workouts, but I do keep moving.

We DVR everything, so I do these exercises during an entire hour-long show, which ends up being about 40 minutes.

Those bonus workouts add up during the week.

In fact, you can burn about 15 calories every five minutes from light calisthenics. 

I realize that doesn’t sound like much, but when you do the math and add that up over the course of a show a night five days a week, and those bonus moves pay off.

Here are some of favorite moves.

Remember, this isn’t a “real workout,” it’s extra work. Mostly isolation exercises.

Just something to keep you from sitting all night. If you’re like me and sit all day at work- I need it!

Here’s some inspiration to get your own ideas flowing.


Add this to your usual routine throughout the work week for some extra burn doing something you were already going to do anyway (watching tv!)

Check in tomorrow for more fun my dears!
