I have discovered I'm able to multi-task cleaning and exercising while I clean my house. I clip on my iPod shuffle and practice my Zumba moves while dusting my floors with my swiffer mop. Love getting my heart rate up burning calories and getting my floors clean at the same time!

Record some of your favorite songs that you really enjoy. Instead of watching television just put on some music and just go for it. Often an 1/2 hour turns into 1-hour session and I feel realy good afterward. 236216
Dancing gets the heart rate up and you haev fun while burning calories.
Put ankle weights and arm weights before playing wii fit, not only do you get the benefit of being active on something really fun -- but the added resistance from the ankle weights and arm weights burns more calories!
Wii fit is great for burning calories -- especially the fun run and hula hoop. You can even change channels while doing the free run :)
Instead of driving to the gym on a snowy day, go sledding with the kids (or even by yourself!). Climbing up the hill over and over is a great way to burn some calories while having fun! Although it might not be as fun as sledding, shoveling is another great way to burn calories on a snowy day!
