I tuck a few plastic grocery bags in my pocket when I go for a walk. Along the way I pick up any litter I see along the road and drop it off at the trash cans at the local beach. I not only get lots of exercise, but I am enjoying nature a lot more. Bring a glove to protect your hands!

ORDER A KIDS MEAL..today my co-workers ordered lunch from a local deli, i ordered a kids turkey and cheese on wheat with organic baby carrots instead of chips..300ish calories..& im really full..even if you go to mcdonalds & get a kids meal [not the big kids meal, the regular one] & get apple dippers & diet soda, you get your taste for mickey d's with WAY fewer calories..i dont recommend doing this often with fast food but every once in a while wont hurt..its all about good choices & moderation

I live alone, in a small village without gym facilities. Roads are narrow and traffic ridden, paths are muddy and bumpy, good for turning ankles or spraining joints! So how do I exercise? I walk up and down the corridor - it is a long one and fifteen circuits make 1 km. I do jumping jacks every commercial break when watching TV and march in place when watching the show! I tune to a music channel when cooking or cleaning and jig around doing the chores!
