10 Ways to Lose Weight With Home Decorating

7. Buy a basic kitchen timer

Set a countdown timer with a loud ring when you are watching television and surfing the internet. Get up and do yard work, house cleaning, or some other physical activity when the timer rings.

8. Make your home bicycle friendly

Read Steve Graham’s article on easy and cheap bike storage ideas, and reap the health benefits of biking.

9. Put your lights on timers

It’s hard to get up out of bed and exercise before work. When multiple alarm clocks didn’t work for me, I put my lamps on timers. The lamps automatically turn on at 6 AM. The light, in addition to my alarm clock, gets me out of bed early and onto my yoga mat.

10. Make your bed and keep your bedroom clean

You are more likely to stay up late surfing the internet and munching if your bedroom is a dark, messy cave. Simply making your bed, so that it looks inviting, will help you to break the late-night surfing/watching/snacking habit in favor of getting some digestion-restoring, metabolism-balancing beauty sleep.

Interesting articale but...I don't watch TV (REALLY!) and the food is always in the kitchen. There is always a bowlof fruit on the table. I am overweight anyway!

Not such a bad idea... now I am thinking about putting exercising bikes instead of the couch in the TV room. I don´t like to watch TV in the living room nor in the bedroom so I don´t have it there.

TVs are ugly anyway. i really like the idea of covering it w/a decorative cloth. Just don't make it a tablecloth. lol! :D
