Exercise While Watching Your Favorite Show

This Sparked Me!

It was one of those days when I wasn't really feeling like working out, but I was feeling guilty for not. I was laying on the couch watching a movie when it hit me, my laptop was right there, so I brought a workout up on the computer (youtube), muted and did my workout while watching the movie.

It worked out great, not only did I get to watch the rest of the movie, the workout flew by and I no longer felt guilty about not doing one for the day.

    I exercise during the commercials...push-ups on the kitchen island, walking around the house, crunches. I can also use my bands and weights during TV viewing.
Thanks for sharing your idea, going to look for a video.
