If you want easy weight loss solutions that don't involve paying for a gym membership, I have two suggestions:
One, entertain a toddler in your home.
Two, teach P.E. for an elementary school.
Due to the lovely recession and our drastically reduced income, I have been taking more subbing jobs at the school I used to teach kindergarten at. I typically take k-3 jobs, but was asked to sub for P.E. on Monday.
Sure, no sweat.
Wait. P.E.? No sweat?
Let me tell you, friends, if you know a P.E. teacher, give that busy man or woman a hug. Thank them for volunteering to wear themselves out for such little pay every school day, and actually looking like they are enjoying it. I am not kidding, that job is a LOT of work. People thought I was crazy for teaching kindergarten and LOVING it! Give me a room full of 5 year olds and a paint project any day...
At least on Monday I didn't feel guilty about skipping out of exercising.
