Whether you’re on a diet or want to tone up, exercise should be an integral
part of your day. Government recommendations state that we should be active for
at least 30 minutes a day, most days of the week (and even more when we want to
lose weight or improve fitness levels). Now, I know for sure I am not doing
that much at the moment! So if you feel you’re in the same boat as myself, have
a look at these quick and easy ways to burn 100 calories.
