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.

4# Dumbbells for upper body excercise while watching Biggest Loser (or any other Favorite Show)
I have started using dumbbells while watching TV. It only is upper body, but useful in stretching shoulders and arms, and useful in low-stress, lots of repititions. And if I do it while watching TV, I feel still relaxing and enjoying my evening, while getting low impact workout. Works for me!!
Like most people, I have my favorite TV shows. Last year I made a list of shows that I'd like to watch (either in real time or on TiVo). I made them "Must Work Out" TV shows. I hung the list next to my TV. If I found myself watching one of my "favorites" I had to have worked out that day, or I had to get up and work out WHILE the show was on. Great way to work out regularly and reward myself for working out!
