The Cyber Bingo Blogger knows it’s an easy trap to fall in to – staying in, playing bingo and pigging out. Especially with the cold weather coming! It can be tempting to curl up next to a radiator with a warm laptop on your knee, but take it from me, the pounds soon start to pile on.
Make sure you get a minimum of 15 minutes exercise every day. Try walking, jogging, swimming, or riding a bike. Check out your local cycle paths, become a member at your local gym, or buy a pair of walking boots.
It’s a good idea to ditch the snacks as well. If you have a fridge and cupboards full of naughty treats, it’s all too easy to dip in and munch away. Replace chocolates for fruit, wine for juice, and meat for veg — even if you reduce your calorie intake by just a little bit, it will make a huge difference.
If you follow these simple tips, you will soon start noticing a difference to your waistline and your energy levels. Remember, Internet bingo is a wonderful experience, but being unable to fit into your favourite dress is not!
