Lazy Girl Ways to Lose Weight
If you’re just starting out on your weight loss journey and you don’t want to jump into a crazy diet, start simple by downloading My Fitness Pal and tracking your calories. It’s a great way to get a realistic idea of how many calories you’re actually eating in a day (my guess is that you’ll be surprised). I don’t recommend counting calories in the long run, but it’s an excellent way to get started and hold yourself accountable.
Plan You Meals with Skinny Taste
Order your Groceries Online
One of my favorite tips is to order your groceries online and pick them up at curbside. It doesn’t get any lazier than that. You don’t even need to walk around the grocery store! Although you’re missing out on burning extra calories walking up and down grocery aisles, you’re actually setting yourself up for weight loss success. By ordering your groceries online, you have more control over what goes in your cart. Order the healthy foods that you know are the right choice and skip over all the impulse purchases of potato chips and candy bars.
Don’t Drink your Calories
Drink a Glass of Room Temperature Water
Drinking a glass of room temperature water first thing in the morning can have huge weight loss benefits. It re-hydrates your body, reduces inflammation, and puts your body on track for fat loss. In fact, I created a 30 day challenge around this simple tip. Check out the challenge and the other benefits here!
Ditch the Gum and Mints
Did you know that chewing gum and mints causes you to swallow excess air which leads to bloating. In addition, many types of gums and mints are sugar free which only causes your body to want to eat. Ditch the gum and mints and you’ll be on your way to a tinier tummy in no time.
Burn NEAT calories
NEAT stands for non exercise activity thermogenesis, which is any movement that isn’t intended as exercise. That’s right, focus on burning calories without exercising. What does this look like?
- Parking at the end of the parking lot
- Taking the stairs
- Getting up and moving during TV commericials
- Pace while you talk on the phone
- Take the long way to the bathroom at work
Don’t Over Complicate
If you’re just starting out on your weight loss journey, don’t over complicate things. The more you restrict yourself, make rules, and limit yourself, the more likely you are to give up and go back to your normal ways. Start slow, be kind to yourself, and implement simple strategies that will put your body on the right track.
