Think about how you can add exercise to your day! Do you do stairs often? Add a set of step-ups on the bottom step every time you go up or down the stairs. Do a set of wall push-ups everytime you pass a designated spot - I do them in the hallway outside my bedroom. Do seated leg-lifts and similar exercises while watching TV. Walk during commercials. Do a set of counter push-ups while cooking or doing dishes. The way to add exercise depends only on your own creativity and determination.
For me, incorporating strength training in the early stages was hard. My secret? Since you are drinking more, you will be going to the bathroom more. Use that as a reminder to do something for strength. Upon your return, do a quick set of squats or wall push ups, or if you work in a highrise bldg, use the restroom two floor up or down and use the stairs to do step ups or calf raises.
