I learned a good tip as a new Mother that helped a great deal losing weight after the baby came. With a new baby your time is not your own so doing a certain exercise several times a day pays off.
Every time I went into the bathroom I did 10 squats - I must have gone in at least 10 times or more each day for myself or gathering something for the baby. I put something on the counter each time I did it so I could keep track. In 6 weeks all the weight was off and I lost my hips. It was so long ago I don't remember what all I did, but the idea applies: Each time you go into a certain room or do a certain thing do 10 reps of an exercise - it adds up for sure.
You can change the place or the exercise to fit your needs but the idea of tracking it reminds you to do it and how many times you have accomplished the feat.
