Saturday: wake up, cook a big breakfast, tidy up the house, wash your car, go shopping with your BFFs and then end the night getting down on the dace floor. 
Go home, go to sleep, wake up and you've just burned 700 calories.

Often times when we think of burning calories we think of hitting the gym, going to Zumba, jogging in the park, busting out the Wii Fit -  but we fail to realize that everything you do that requires movement of your body burns calories. 

If you're a waiter, at the end of the day you've burned some mega calories running back and forth from kitchen to table and back again for hours and hours. You're a stay at home parent? Chasing after kiddos, playing catch and roughhousing burns calories! Everything does!

Is vacuuming everyday going to turn you into a sports calendar model over night? Nope.
 But it WILL help you stay on track with your diet, especially if you're logging your caloric intake. If you've discovered that you're about to go over your daily calorie allowance by noon - then it's time go out and rake some leaves or go fishing.

So if the word "exercise" makes you wanna run... the other way, no worries.
Here are 30 realistic and "non-exercisey"  activities that you can do (or do MORE of) that will burn 100 calories.
