How about buying a set of resistance bands and doing some strength training workouts while you watch your favorite TV shows ? You can buy a set of resistance bands for cheap at any Walmart, Target, Sears or even TJ Maxx.
If you're not sure what to do with those bands, I highly recommend joining SERGEANTMAJORs resistance band team. He has a bunch of beginner to advance workouts posted that you can try at home. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individ
If you don't want to use resistance bands, check out the fitness section. Coach Nicole has a bunch of 10-15 minute workouts posted. do 1-2 for a 15-30 minute workout. There are lots of different things you could do with your time in the evening. You could do Coach Nicole's fitness workouts. You could buy or borrow DVD workouts. You could use resistance bands. You could get a gym membership and take a class. You could take a walk around the neighborhood. How about taking a walk ? There are members who will tell you how they lost 100+ pounds just by walking and watching what they ate. Take an evening walk. That's a great way to start an exercise routine.
Do you have to exercise in the evenings if you're already working out in the mornings ? Of course, not. But it's something you could do if you were bored. If you want to be productive with your time, then how about reading a book instead of watching TV ? You could even do some crafts like painting or sewing.
And well, there's nothing wrong with just siting and watching the news. The question is, how much TV are you watching ? If it's only an hour here or there, don't worry. But if you do find that watching TV is taking up too much time, then think about doing some resistance band workouts, sewing or reading a book.
Here's the thing, studies have shown that people who watch too much TV tend to pack on the pounds.
