Since I’ve started my Profile by Sanford journey to health I have been looking for some creative ways to burn some extra calories here and there. Of course, I am still hitting my Barre Classes and Peloton whenever I can but who doesn’t want to burn a few extra lbs?

There are all kinds of activities you can do that don’t require a fitness facility. These are some easy ways to burn 100 calories and the best part? You don’t have to put on your workout gear and you might not even break a sweat.

Here are my top 7 favorite things to do to cut some extra calories out of my day!

  • Clean your house – Break out the broom and mop and get busy and in 25 minutes of cleaning, you’ll burn 100 calories and your home will look better for it, too.
  • Go window shopping – Just 33 minutes of walking and browsing will burn 100 calories.
  • Get busy with some lovin’ – A romp between the sheets that lasts for 50 minutes will take care of 100 calories.
  • Belt it out – Turn up the radio and sing along to your favorite tunes for 40 minutes to hit 100 calories.
  • Have a dance party – Turn up the music and bust a move in the living room and you’ll burn 100 calories in just 17 minutes.
  • Get in the garden – Dig in the dirt and get your planting on for 22 minutes to blast away 100 calories and you’ll get some fresh air and sunshine, too.
  • Take a hike – Just 15 minutes of taking in the sights and sounds of nature on your hike will burn off 100 calories and most treks take at least twice that long.
