Weight-loss and Wird Thread

One of the easiest ways to lose weight without killing yourself with excessive cardio is walking 10k steps per day. It burns about 300 calories extra per day and helps put you in a calorie deficit via activity rather than starving urself
Some people like to listen to podcasts, music, or audio books to pass the time, but if you want to invest in the time rather than pass it, consider reciting different adhkhar instead - you'll combine weight loss with spiritual gains at the same time
In order to make good use of your time when you walk, you should have a wird - a prepared routine of dhikr, du'as, and Qur'an you'll complete each day. This way, you have a mental goal in mind to reach that you can increase as your spiritual and physical endurance grow.
I find the best time to do this is first thing in the morning after Fajr, working for 30 min. It's a great way to start the day after waking up, and you get the additional barakah of being included in the du'a of the Prophet for early risers who stay up and work after fajr
For those who like to train lifting weights or doing intervals, consider walking and reciting between sets of lifting weights. I like to jump rope in sets of 100 and then immediately walk and recite, until I hit around 500 - 700 skips on the rope
