Just like with your walks start small. If you want to eventually be able to do something like pushups start with a hard incline or even use a wall. Start with your arms extended and palms on the wall then let your body weight rest on your arms then try to bend. If you can only do a little itís ok itís still something these may even feel easy, GREAT! Start with whatever you can do then add more as you get stronger. Eventually move to a desk which will give you a greater incline and a bit more of a challenge.
If push ups arenít your thing (Iím military so they have to be for me) then that is fine, try something else like walking with some small weights, water bottles filled (or part way) with sand work well and are super cheap. You could also change your path to include some hills if you are currently walking on a flat route.
I like dancing as an alternate for of exercise because itís fun, best part if you donít need a class or teacher or even other people. Throw some fun music onto your computer of CD player and just move your body around, close the curtains so you arenít distracted and or worried about the neighbors. Any movement will make your body wake up and will make you feel great.
If you are looking for a new kind of body weight exercise I recommend these sights, they have tons for most levels.
This second website has some awesome stuff but can seem intense, there are always alternatives and breakdowns for beginners.
The important thing is that you are moving. I hope this is helpful to you, good luck and great job!
