Diet And Exercise For People Who Don't Diet Or Exercise

January 20, 2010 by Rebekah

It’s January, which of course, means we’re all trying to improve, resolve, get hotter, and whatnot. Because we enjoy things that are easier than they should be, we’re showing you some simple ways to get in your “workout” today on Better.tv.

Work Out While You Walk

omron pedometer

A ton of companies are making really useful gadgets that help you monitor your activity throughout the day.

The latest iPod Nano ($149) has a digital pedometer built in, so you can track your steps while you walk. If you don’t want an iPod attached, you can carry the Omron Digital Pedometer ($22.99) in your handbag, and find out your steps taken, distance, and calories burned when you’re done with your day.

Two other, wearable pedometers – the Polar FA20 Activity Computer ($109.95) and BodyMedia’s GoWear ($179.99) both track steps, and calories burned, plus they offer online components where you can track your progress in more detail – the GoWear even monitors how well you sleep.

Fix Up Your Health Habits

To make sure your bad habits are in check, grab an iPosture ($49.95) and a Hyp Yoga DVD ($39.99). The iPosture, a little button you can clip to your bra, vibrates when you slouch, reminding you to sit up straight all day.

Hyp Yoga combines yoga and hypnosis, to let you relax while you work out, all the while helping to change self-defeating eating habits.

Fashion That Gives You A Workout

These cute accessories are really stealthy fitness aids: Banglz ($27.99 for 2), which basically look like cloth-covered bangle bracelets, are half-pound weights that help tone arms while you do everyday lifting (i.e. buttoning your blouse)

FitFlop Mukluks ($112), which basically look like shearling booties, help tone your legs and butt while you walk (plus, you can cuff them or fold them up depending on your outfit).

Wear both together and you’re practically doing a strength circuit.

Almost Effortless Dieting

measure up bowls

We think that downsizing portions is a lot easier than the whole planning ahead, making all your meals on Sunday, not eating ice cream thing. Measure Up Bowls ($29.99 for 2) have lines that mark out portion sizes right inside the bowl – pour your cereal up to the 1/2 cup line, fill with milk to a cup. Done.
