I love to ride my stationary bike in front of the TV.
In high school, I played volleyball. I never forgot how my arms hurt when coach made us do "sets" against the wall, 100 at a time. It occurred to me 20 years later, that I could get a volleyball and do them on my own. I do 100 sets during the commercials every evening. It's fun for me.
Short walks throughout the day help me burn calories, get some fresh air, and recharge me for my work.
Every 3 or so hours, I pick a direction and walk for 5 min. Then I turn around and retrace my steps. A quick 10 min at whatever pace you want works wonders! Try it a couple of times!
when I go to the restroom at work, I use the stall wall to do a set of 10 squats. With all the water I'm drinking, this gives me about 10 sets a day!
Just get to the gym or whatever area of the house you designate to exercise!! For me it's the battle -- once I'm there I'm ready to keep going & work hard at it!!!
I'm a huge multi-tasker and almost always do other things while watching tv. Now I've started setting aside 10 -15 minutes each night to mulit-task by doing exercises or stretching. I don't have a treadmill, but I can still do pushups, squats, etc.
Too busy enjoying the outdoor or getting that yard work done to do Sparks? You can always go back and track your fitness minutes later. You don't have to add it on the day you actually do it. Just click on the calendar beside it, and choose the appropriate day or use the back arrow.
I take care of a 3 yo. He loves to ride his bike. While he rides I walk. We challenge each other by racing. He usually wins and he get very excited.
It helps me to get started walking if I just put on some tennis shoes, wear whatever I have on, open the door and start walking down the street. Walk just 10 minutes from my house and by the time I get back, I've walked 20 minutes.
