Are there days in the week when you can make plans to stay put all day long? Park that car and don't move it for the entire day. Clean house, do yard work, walk to the store, play board games. If you think of your vehicle as a huge money drain, which it is, you can plan your week and your chore routes to drive less. Once in awhile, don't move your car at all for 24 hours.

Stopping in at Starbucks, etc. is way, way too tempting if there's money available to do that Soooo I've learned to leave the house with just enough money to do what I want to do -- anything else requires returning home to get my bank card, tap the machine for more cash, etc. that's daunting
And, if I opt to do that, I've at lease gotten in some exercise (I don't have a car)
When you don't really have enough time to go to the gym (or like me - you just don't have one near to where you live and you don't have a car) - invest in your home gym. Yoga mat (I got mine for 6 EUR), resistance bands (sale - 5 for a set!!!), stability ball and a jump rope. And you have all you need to start moving!
I got all those things (and the overall bill is still less than a membership at the gym) and I can squeeze in a portion of exercise anytime in between. I am independent from anything, I decide when and how long I train. And having so much to choose from at home, I do much more.
