10 ways to lose a pound calories burned

Over on the East Coast, we just may be experiencing the longest part of Winter…the waiting for it to come to an end!  It’s pretty easy to get into a rut in the Winter, in fact I usually pack on an extra few pounds I like to refer to as my “Winter coat” =)… That’s all well & good when we’re bundled up, but it’s certainly not okay when bikini season rolls around! So this year, I put together a simple list of things I can do each day to help shed my Winter coat before Summer comes.  In order to lose a pound, we need to burn off 3,500 calories, which is certainly doable in a weeks time.

To lose a pound a week, simply perform one of these activities per day.  All of these activities will burn off at least 500 calories per session, so you’ll be back in bikini shape in no time!

Don’t forget to eat well while your working on your beach bod!  Head over here for our favorite skinny recipes!

  2. This is a really neat idea! i like how there are a diverse set of exercises you can do. I’ve booked a resort in a few weeks and it’s time to get my beach body back before I go!

  3. My daughter sent me this web site. My goodness, what cute practical items, fun and usefull. Great combination!
