I have a stability ball and an exercise bike in the living room in front of the TV. If I am watching TV, I need to be sitting on one or the other. The time goes by quickly while I am watching my favorite shows and I am strengthening various parts of the body in the meantime.

Watch TV without feeling Lazy (with hand weights!)
While watching tv, rather then sitting back and getting too comfy I sit on my sofa and use my hand weights while watching tv, its really fun and if your really into watching something you kinda forget about it and afterwards it makes me feel like i accomplished some exercise while watching tv!104
Never miss a chance to exercise. Get up and walk around the house during tv commercials. Do calf raises while waiting in store lines. March in place cooking dinner. Do chair exercises while watching tv. KEEP MOVING to KEEP LOSING!
Find a way to exercise while watching TV. I moved my stationary bike into the living room. Ugly, Yes. But so is that fat on my body. I will keep the bike in the living room until spring. Then I will be able to exercise outside
Snow and cold weather are no longer reasons not to be able to exercise! While riding the bike watching TV I also use the stretch bands for my arms.
