I recently bought a pair of 10 pound dumb bells and started strength training in front of a full length mirror. I have a list of exercises (bicep curls, triceps, lateral raises, etc.) that I do. It only takes 10 minutes but I'm getting stronger. And muscles burn more calories than fat.
I do a series of crunches, planks (front and side) tricep dips, step-ups and donkey kicks every evening. It only takes 10 minutes and the changes I have seen in my overall strength has really been noticeable. Don't discount the impact of just a few minutes of exercise... doing it consistently is what matters.
If you want to make a good stirfry but don't want to spend time chopping vegetables, Birdseye stirfry comes in a large package at WalMart with sauce and only takes 10 minutes to cook! Plus, there are no preservatives in Birdseye Oriental Stirfry
