I bought several of those little belt-attachment or keychain-attachment battery-powered bike lights (the ones that bikers use to ride at night; they're sold in bike shops and outdoor equipment stores), and I keep one in each of my carrybags, so that I can take outdoor walks at night (or as night is approaching) and feel less worry about my safety. The lights are really bright, and last a long time!!

Get a water bottle that you like. Your bottle can be just as much a part of your outfit as your purse. Then take it with you. If you like looking at it, then you'll like having it around. AND it's easier to keep track of oz, when the size doesn't change. Mine is an orange Nalgene, with a yellow lid!
When the weather gets bad I get my daily walk in by folding laundry on one end of the house and walking it to the other end piece by piece...fold a shirt, walk it to the closet and put it away, walk back to the laundry basket. Sounds silly, but I did get a 40 minute walk in that way yesterday when the outdoor temperature didn't get above 10 degrees.
