I once used to do this but forgot over the past few years. When doing something mundane like cooking dinner, brushing my teeth, watching television or even getting ready in the morning I make sure to constantly move. Whether it's marching in place, doing leg lifts, or modified butt kicks.
I've tracked this on my GoWear Fit now a days and this can add about 300 plus calories burned over the entire day! Amazing that I'm not even fully exercising and yet I'm still burning some extra calories. When you have time constraints this is really handy! Just remember to just move!!!

I do different exercises everyday so I don't get burned out doing the same thing over and over.
I get burned out on things fast so I like to mix it up to keep myself on track. I try to treat exercise like food and that I have choices. Roller skating, swimming, xbox kinect workout video games, exercise videos, gym weights, treadmill, the list goes on and on.
