A good way to burn that extra pound is to try to stay in constant motion as much as possible throughout the day.
It’s amazing to me how I chase after kids all day and some days, I gain a pound. For as much as I keep up with them, I know I’m not getting in as much movement as I think I am. They say over and over again that we should get in about 10,000 steps a day. One way to gauge this is to invest in a pedometer.
Yes, pedometers are not an exact count. They work by calculating the movement of your hip. A bump could trigger an extra count but it’s a better gauge than nothing. There’s a little article HERE on pedometers–how to use them and calculating distance with steps.
