In the morning before I take my shower, I do calf raises on the shower stall door. I also do wall push-ups or close arm wall push-ups after I put conditioner in my hair while I wait the 2 minutes. At the end of my shower I have a squeegee that I use to clean the doors. 3 exercises in one shower!

Establish a reward cycle when you start to exercise by showering with an extravagant shower gel that you ONLY use after exercise. I did this when starting out and I still love to stand in the shower basking in the wonderful aroma, exercise endorphins, and the feeling of virtue and nurturing from taking care of myself by exercise. Add to the effect by smoothing on a matching body lotion and remember that feeling on into your day.
Associating pampering & other rewards with exercise reinforces your perception of exercise as an enjoyable activity, and increases the likelihood that it will become an enduring habit.
