Tip #3: Add it in to Weigh Less 

Move More! This is a different take on "exercise," though, so I promise you will want to read on. 

We all know that if you exercise more, you might lose weight. That's NOT what I am talking about here, though. I'm talking about adding in just a wee-bit more movement when you can in your normal day.

I learned this from Ellen Degeneres's trainer, John Pierre, so it's a good one, promise!

Spend only one minute - 60 seconds - moving a wee bit more every waking hour. Here's what I propose: set an alert on your phone to remind you to do one minute of movement whenever the chime sounds. It might look something like this. . . Before work, the chime sounds twice. . . you do 10 squats, 10 pushups, and 20 crunches each time. At work when it sounds you simply get up and move around or go to the bathroom and do a few squats or pushups on the wall. At home the alarm sounds and you get three more sets of pushups, squats, and crunches before bed. At the end of the day, you've done a minimum of 50 squats, 50 pushups, and 100 crunches!!! And you haven't even gone to the gym or dreaded any workout.

Plan to do something so crazy-easy that you will happily do it every hour. I.e. I don't mind to do drop and give you ten every hour, but if I had to give you 20, I might dread it and skip. Nope! Keep it easy peasy. You'll likely get stronger and just want to do more reps each time or for a longer duration as time goes by.
