  • Pop gum in your mouth
Even if you've told your kids to stop chomping on their gum, you'd be smart to keep chewing the stuff. Besides freshening breath, and sending a signal to yourself that you're finished eating, gum-chewing has a 150-pound woman blowing off 11 calories every 12 minutes.

  • Fix up your car
You could pay for a pricey mechanic, or you could take 30 minutes to open up your hood, and see for yourself why your sedan is making that weird chugging noise. A 150-pound woman who gets down and dirty for half an hour burns 102 calories, and saves a pretty penny.

Take the stairs
In the same time you waste waiting for the elevator to come, you could be improving your physique. Climbing stairs burns seven-to-10 calories per minute, and climbing down burns about one-third of that, says Keri Glassman, author of The New You and Improved You Die

  • Visit the bowling alley
Today's bowling leagues bear little resemblance to the ones to which your dad disappeared when you were a kid. These now-retro date spots are the perfect place to indulge your competitive streak — and to toss 102 calories into the gutter in a half-hour.

  • Laugh out loud
Whether it be a girls night, watching the ridiculous new imitation your kid picked up, or a Modern Family marathon, giggling is good for your mind and body. According to a study conducted at Vanderbilt University, the average adult burns 1.3 calories per minute from chuckling.

  • Buy an activity monitor
Whether you choose a Fitbit or a Nike+ FuelBand, having some gauge of how much you're moving throughout the day will encourage you to go for a much-needed walk after a day of mostly sitting. "Even as a fitness professional, it's good for me to have that on to show me I need t

  • Chew your food
A medium-size apple is 60 calories, and you're better off chomping on it than you are drinking 60 calories worth of apple juice. "Foods in a whole state require the body to burn a little hotter, thanks to chewing and digestion," says Becky Hand, author of The Spark Solution.

  • Sleep through the night
Add this to the list of reasons to hit the sack. When you get adequate rest, your levels of ghrelin, the hunger hormone, go down, meaning you'll eat less without trying. Experts estimate that compared to getting seven-to-eight hours of sleep per night.

  • Stand up while you wait
It may be unrealistic to install a standing desk at your workstation, but staying upright is a must in our largely sedentary daily lives. Standing burns 33 percent more calories than sitting, says Glassman,
