Spending my lunch break getting up steps with the Mrs @madisonhare
, rather than getting stuck on my phone! Having protocols like a daily step goal, is an easy and achievable way to keep you accountable, and burn a few extra calories before stepping a foot in the gym.
N.E.A.T is an acronym for ‘Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis’. N.E.A.T is any activity you perform that will help with you burning calories, outside of focused exercise, and is commonly measured through steps.
It is about consciously making decisions to move more than you usually would. E.g. choosing the furthest carpark away from the office/gym.. or making two trips when getting groceries out of the car, even if you’re a big dawg and think you can make it in one... All of these small decisions add up quickly and make a huge difference over a few weeks and months. My current goal is 12,000 steps a day, and then key is to stay on the move as much as possible throughout the day, instead of trying to smash it all out in one go! #BAIFIT
