I honestly can't believe I am suggesting this tip because my husband paces like a mad man when he is on the phone and it drives me nuts.
However, try pacing or walking while you talk on the phone. Pacers burn way more calories than lounging chatterboxes. In fact, you can burn five times more calories by walking around while chatting on the phone than if you were just sitting sedentary on your couch. You can walk and talk during your lunch break, at home or at the airport waiting for your flight. Not only will you be burning more calories throughout the day, but you'll also get closer to clocking in 10,000 steps (the recommended amount for a healthy woman) during the day.
