This Sparked Me!

While watching tv when the adverts come on get up and do a minute of lunges, squats, press ups. Do this only during the breaks and the minutes will soon add up. If you spend 3 hours watching tv with 4 ad breaks an hour you've done 12 mins of excercise

This gets you moving and is sustainable. If you do short bursts it's better than nothing at all and soon you'll actually feel like exercising
