Fidget often. ?You can burn calories just by fidgeting,? says Giselle Roque de Escobar, RD, LD/N, a fitness and nutrition consultant and star of Crunch: Cardio Salsa video (Anchor Bay Entertainment). Granted, fidgeting isn't the same as walking for 45 minutes, but every bit counts.
Move while you wait. Add up all the waiting you do during the day—while cooking, shopping and commuting—and you'll be surprised by how much downtime you'll total. So use that time to move. Do calf raises (lift up and down on your toes) or squeeze your abs or glutes repeatedly.
