There is one topic that is either hit or miss with you… Exercise.
You either love it or you tolerate it because you know that exercise is one tiny piece to the puzzle titled, “Your Success.”
Learning to like exercise takes a lot of time, just ask bariatric patient Maria Besenski who said, “I was finishing an hour of cardio workout with my trainer last week and she said I had done enough and didn’t have to complete the last three minutes of running. I did it anyway, as that was my favorite part of the workout. ME, the woman who hated running chose to do it.”
“I would never have thought I would have felt that way.”
Many patients before surgery find it very difficult and sometimes painful to exercise due to health conditions such as difficulty breathing/shortness of breath, knee or back pain, aching joints, and heart conditions.
And then after surgery, many patients don’t even know where to begin their exercise routine. We’ve created this blog to help you incorporate exercise into your daily routine if you don’t have time to go to the gym or if you need a little help starting a routine and learning to like exercise.
Now that we know the benefits of exercise, how can you incorporate exercise into your daily life?
It’s easy! We have some tips for you to try that won’t even FEEL like exercise.
Start any activity with a warm-up. Stretch right when you get out of bed. Do some jumping jacks while watching the morning news!
Use stairs! So your office is on the fifth floor? Take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalators. If the only stairs you encounter during the day are in your home, place dumb bells at the bottom of your stairs. When you’re walking up your stairs pick them up and do a few reps, but leave them at the top of the stairs. Pick them back up when you’re walking downstairs and leave them at the bottom of the stairs. Do this every time you walk up and down the stairs.
Park your car further away from your destination. Are you going to the grocery store? Park at the back of the lot and take the extra time to get your steps in. Have a front row parking spot at work? Skip it. Park in the back! You’ll get added exercise to your daily routine in no time by making this one change.
Practice good posture. Make sure your back is straight to strengthen your core.
Walk while you talk! Say you’re on the phone with someone for 30 minutes? That’s 30 minutes of walking you’re fitting into your day!
This is a fun one! Do 15-20 squats every time you go to the bathroom. It’s a quick and sporadic way to sneak fitness into your schedule.
Do calve raises when you’re in line, anywhere. In line for lunch? Calve raises. In line for the bathroom? Calve raises. In line at the store? Calve raises! You’ll have tighter, toner calves in no time.
Do you carry a lot of bags inside after you go shopping? Do bicep curls with your bags as you walk inside. Think of it like a challenge to your arms. How many reps can you squeeze in before you make it inside?!
Some more fun ways to sneak in exercise is during regular household activities. Calve raises while doing dishes, lunges while vacuuming, squats while folding your clothes or making your bed.
In order to stay healthy, we encourage you to try these nine little ways to sneak exercise into your schedule.
Try these tips for a week and see how much better you feel knowing you’re making tiny little differences that will amount to extremely big differences in your health!

I have been in a stall between 208 and 202 for 5 months....in one week of being back on Nutracelle I am now in ONEDERLAND!
The taste and quality of nutracelle is absolutely unparalleled in the protein market. I recommend it to all my friends and family and having been using it daily for almost 2 years now. And still in love!
The Vanilla Cream is a great flavour added to any of my favourite smoothie recipes! Also makes a nice tasting pancake recipe.
Natural Nutralean from Nutracelle is the perfect protein to add to your food!! There is no added taste!! I made a zucchini meat pasta and added 2 scoops of Natural into my meat sauce!! Not only did it give me and my family all the protein we needed for dinner, but it cut back our portion sizes because we felt fuller faster! We have leftovers now for lunches!! I am so happy with my Nutracelle!
The Vanilla Mocha from Nutracelle is to die for!!! If you are like me and need my coffee every morning to function...then this is for you, as it will give you all the energy you need!! It even taste just like something I can get from Tim Horton's but this is good for you to drink every morning!! This is a must for coffee lovers!!!
The Chocolate Dream Protein from Nutracelle is soooo good. Chocolate is my all time favourite snack and with Nutracelle I am able to make these delicious desserts that are actually good for you! This is a must flavour to have!!
Meal plan is realistic and absolutely manageable. My coach checks in post every workout to see if there is any area I struggle in or if maybe the routine was too easy. He is quick at answering any questions I have and is very knowleageable with nutrition and what my body needs to eat and can explain it to me in various ways to make sure I understand as well. I have never worked with someone who is so passionate about fitness and proper nutrition as well as someone who is on top of everything. App is also very user-friendly; super easy to log everything in with a few click so that you dont have to do it urself on paper. Absolutely thrilled to be working with this team to better my fitness life. Highly recommend joining the team!
Nutracelle's Weight Loss kit has made such a huge impact on my life! I was a junk food junky before I found Nutracelle, and now I don't even think about it! It's been months since I've had any kind of junk and I've never felt better! More energy, tons of weight loss, and I've dropped 2 clothing sizes too!! AMAZING!
The weightloss kit has enabled me to wake up each morning knowing that I've got this!! For the first time in my life I've found something that allows me to feel full and satisfied and I can bake and cook with it to curb cravings I have for junky foods! In my first two months I'm down 15 pounds and dropping. Almost everyday there is a decrease on the scale I couldn't be happier!! I'm looking forward to continued success THANK YOU NUTRACELLE!
Nutracelle is the best product I have ever used for protein. All the flavours are fantastic, can't taste the protein. Since I started to take Nutracelle I have consistent energy throughout the day, it keeps me full and satisfied. My recovery from my workouts and running is fantastic. Recommend this product to anyone wanting to lose weight, athletes or to increase your protein intake daily.
Shakes are amazing. I just mix them with (sugar-free) milk and have no problem drinking them. Like at all! I even love the chocolate. I never ever love chocolate protein shakes haha
This Whey protein powder is the most amazing and the most delicious that I have ever tasted.....with it having 30 grams of protein and 10 grams of prebiotic fiber in one serving, not many meals have that so a great way to get that into your diet.....It mixes very well with no clumping and doesn't have the chalky after taste. I find that is is very easy on my stomach as I am lactose intolerant and I have no issues what so ever, it has actually helped with my stomach issues....Love that it mixes very well with just water! I also Love that it is so versatile that I am not just limited to the shakes, that I can use it in my baking and cooking . If I could give it 10 Stars I would.
I have been on nutracelle since January 2017 and absolutely love it!
I'm losing weight and inches, I have so much more energy and it makes me happy! Nutracelle is giving me my life back! #ilovenutracelle
Nutracelle has been the one product that has kept me on track with my weight loss journey. So easy to incorporate into my daily routine and it tastes amazing! Almost all of my immediate family all use and love Nutracelle too!
It tastes amazing & reduces cravings! I'm breastfeeding and was finding my cravings worse than when I was pregnant. I needed something to eat with my meals to help me stay full, be nutritious and curb cravings. This is it!
