Determined to stay off the couch in the evening after a long day and exercise, I found if I sit on the floor I end up doing all my Calisthenics, yoga poses and stretching, while hanging with hubby and enjoying our tv show.
Pick up the pace on commercials or dance. Throw in sit ups or push ups and dips. Fast and hard so u raise your heart beat! Also, SP has some great short videos just the right length for commercials. Those minutes add up !!!

When I have an off day and don't feel like going to the gym, I still make myself drive by. Somehow I always end up pulling into the parking lot and thinking "Well, since I'm already here, I might as well go inside". I feel like I'm tricking myself into getting there, but it works! It's easy to stay at home on the couch, but once you're in the gym's parking lot then the couch isn't quite as tempting.
