I know the feeling being away from SP is hard for me too but at least it keeps my hands busy and away from stuffing my face

I do have to force myself away from SP at times. But even as I walk into the kitchen to get that apple, I use that walk to do some leg lifts or arm reaches or abs twisters or whatever. I like multi tasking so when the commercials come on TV, I break away from SP to do some sit-up or just walk in place. emoticon

Ya, see thats why I do the bathroom exercises. I have to be there a zillion times a day because of the water intake any way.LOL!!So I do wall exercises with each trip.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance. Remember Dance like no one is watching!!

At one point I was totally hooked on SP to the point where i would rather Spark then work out, but in the end I can only get fitness points from being active so that motivated. Also reading about all the other exercises that people were doing really got me working.

I have a laptop so sometimes I would bring dumbbells by my desk and work out my upper body while sparking - see multi tasking.

my problem is not the TV. tell me how to get away from SP and sitting at the computer.
Great Idea. This is as good as the bathroom break I do.

Commercial Exercise Breaks

In the 1960s, the average 60-minute television show had about nine minutes of commercials. Today, that has doubled to 18 minutes. Some half-hour shows can have as many as 12 minutes of commercials. Think of how you can constructively use that time to fit more fitness into your day--instead of flipping between other shows. If you exercised during commercials while watching TV for about 2 hours, it would add up to more than 30 minutes a day!

Whether you choose cardio, flexibility, or strength exercises, you're getting a lot accomplished! Here are some ideas to get your started:

* Cardio: Run, march or jog in place; jumping jacks or jump rope; try simple kickboxing moves like squats with front kicks, forward jabs or other combinations fit for a small space; step up and down your stairs or aerobics step; march with high knees in front and to the sides.
* Strength: Try body weight exercises like lunges, squats, pushups, and plank. Keep some dumbbells or resistance bands in the room to do additional upper body exercises--including ones that you can do while watching your show.
* Flexibility: After your heart rate is up from strength or cardio exercises, your muscles are warm and primed for stretching. While sitting, try upper body stretches for the shoulders, biceps, and triceps. From a standing position, stretch side to side, bend over to stretch your hamstrings. Sit on the floor with your legs apart and stretch over each leg and to the center.

Time Involved: 2-5 minutes per session

Body Benefit: Talk about multi-tasking!
