When I was just starting out I tried finding lots of little ways to get moving. One of my favorite finds was doing the car dance. Every morning on my way to work I turn my radio on, find some great tunes, and turn it up!
Not only does this help you burn a couple extra calories it helps put you in a great mood. Even if I look like an idiot sitting in traffic jamming out I can't help but smile!
It doesn't matter if you are just doing a little head bob, or you wave 'em like you just don't care. Just get moving!

As I drive to and from work I dance to the music on the radio. It started with sucking in my stomach and stretching my back and has advanced to swaying, twisting and contracting my butt. The 45 minute drive doesn't seem so long, my back no longer hurts when I drive and I am wearing a smaller size pant.
One of the Spark aricles call this "car dancing" I am referring o it as "butt dancing".
While I am waiting on something I dance. I dance while waiting on the microwave, waiting on my kid's bathwater to finish, while washing dishes my legs are dancing, I stand while folding clothes and dance! Dancing lifts your mood and also helps you to get in that secret exercise!! It may look silly, but I know what I am doing it for and it isn't for anyone that may be laughing at me, it is for ME!
