Fruity Fact Friday: {Excercise Week!}

I saw all of these {fruity facts} and couldn't pick just one...  
Happy Friday!!

# 1: There is no need to follow an exhaustive exercise regime. Breathing will do the trick! Yes, breathing can help you lose weight. The more oxygen you take in, the higher your metabolism rate will be; the more calories you can burn; and the less hungry you will feel. Easting less and metabolizing more of the calories you do ingest are two of the greatest weight loss enticers known. {*If you need help learning how to "breathe" :) check this out. }

# 2: Playing with your children or grandchildren for just one hour can burn as many calories as walking briskly for the same amount of time. Now, which is more fun?

# 3: Eat just 13 packs of cookies (now admit it, that isn't all that difficult), and you will increase by one entire dress size. {Yikes!} Now, how long will it take you to jog that extra weight off? More than 100 hours on the treadmill! If that does not keep you away from the cookie jar, I don't know what will.

# 4: Are you a soda-holic? Join the crowd. The average American adult downs 45 gallons of soft drinks every year. But did you know that that equals 21 pounds of body fat! {uggg.}

 # 5: Eating spicy foods an hour or two before you work out can increase your metabolism by as much as 50% -- now that is a tastier way to burn more calories. {¡muy excellente!}

 # 6: Standing up straight burns more calories than slouching - just one more reason for good posture. Stand up straight. Good posture burns more calories than slouching. {scrunch up that core!}

# 7: Ditch the aerobics class if you want to lose weight. {whoo hoo!} Opt instead for a little home improvement. It has been proven that painting a room; shampooing a rug or doing a bit of landscaping in the yard can burn twice as many calories in an hour than a medium-intensity aerobics class can!

# 8: You burn 26 calories in a one minute kiss.  {Go on, put on some lip smacker and pucker up!}

 # 9: You burn more calories sleeping than watching television.  {Turn off that boob tube and take a nap instead!}

# 10: It takes twice as long to lose new muscle if you stop working out than it did to gain it.  {whoa, guess I'll keep working on that GB...}

Even though {Exercise} week is almost over - Keep on keeping on! We'll still be trekkin' through P90X and Jillian-{even if it kills us =} That eeney weeney bakeeny is calling your name!  And before ya know it, you'll be known as Hot Bod-ness!


  1. These are fun, motivating reasons to want to work out (or not eat so much :) ). Thanks for sharing!

  2. #5, #7, and #8 are my FAVORITES. Mostly because it gives me an excuse to eat before exercising, tell myself that I can skip the gym and keep working on my house, and extra kisses are always bonus!

  3. I loved excise week!! :D It was fun reading about everyone's stories and realize we all feel the asme about ourselves. hahaha. And I loves these workout fact things today! :) So fun.

  4. thankyou for your sweet comment! so happy that you are enjoying it!

    working my way around your blog and finding that i love it!
