7. Walk it off.
If you are not ready to hit the gym yet, going for a brisk walk is one of the best ways to start. It’s nice and easy, and you can take your time, enjoy the scenery, and literally “take a break.” You won’t burn the extra pounds in a day, but we are talking about subtle changes, right?
Using a fitness tracker/pedometer/Fitbit/you-name-it is of great help in getting to understand how much you really move during a day. Some sophisticated models buzz nastily until you get off the chair and start moving. Technical progress at its best.
