Use the time you spend on the phone as a time to get some exercise in. Try walking around while you talk on the phone instead of sitting. It is not necessary to do calisthenics. Attending to household chores, or simply pacing, adds up to the burning of extra calories.
Does anyone not like french fries? French fries are bad for those trying to lose weight. However, if you want to eat french fries that help erase pounds instead of adding them, bake them. Slice some potatoes into fries about 1/2″ wide, then put them in a bowl with a tablespoon of oil. Add salt and pepper (and optionally, rosemary), then put them in the oven and bake them at 400 degrees. Turn them over and bake for another 10 minutes. They’re really delicious with ketchup, a lot lower in calories and you’ll never miss the deep frying. This great idea for “French Bakes” came from Laurel’s Kitchen cookbook.
If the reason you are exercising is to lose weight, then you need to focus more on cardiovascular exercise than weight training.

If you want to lose weight cardio exercises are better than weight lifting.
Just follow these simple guidelines and you’ll definitely reach your weight loss goals. Remember to take things day by day and do not be afraid to make mistakes. It is counter-productive to beat yourself up over a diet or exercise lapse. Every day is a day that you can begin anew.
