When I watch a great movie, it seems like I can stay on my exercise bike much longer than I can when I watch TV. Water, no popcorn

Some favorite upbeat music with: tapping my feet and just moving to the music (moving my shoulders, nodding my head, snapping my fingers, moving my feet or swaying (when sitting at a desk or standing while washing dishes or even when reading a book). I also like doing stretching and easy moves while watching TV -- keeps me from eating mindlessly as well as being easier on my feet!

I also love Zumba. Another thing I do is download books onto my MP3 player. My local library lets you download for free (21 day rental) so I get lost in my book while I'm on the elliptical or walking on my street. It's still the same exercises I've been doing but I'm so engrossed in my book that I'm not paying attention to my exercise. :)

I sure wasn't thinking exercise last night while playing tennis, only 'Woo-hoo, this is FUN!"
Zumba is a dancing-type workout. I haven't tried it personally. I guess it just depends how self-conscious you are. Also, you can add your weight loss ticker when you create your sparkpage. There's options down at the bottom.

Swimming! I love swimming at the lake, I don't do laps or anything intense but I don't just sit in the water either. I just go to have fun and cool off from the heat but I wear my heart rate monitor and it counts as part of my cardio for the day :)
Lawn mowing, gardening, cleaning out the garage, other heavy cleaning. You know, the stuff I have to do anyway, but when I think about it, it's decent exercise . . . and it makes me feel better to be "multitasking"
Dance is the best way to exercise without feeling like exercise. I especially love belly dance - it's aerobic and toning all in one! Ballet bar work is great for balance and helps tone the muscles (especially the thighs, butt, and abs). Hip Hop is high energy and will burn about a zillion calories while you're having fun.
