    I keep my stomach muscles tense throughout the day, while driving, walking, vacuuming (great exercise)... you can literally be doing crunches all the time... While watching tv, just do mini leg lifts that no one really notices (secret work outs emoticon - by KIMI411
  • Great idea! It can be done during tv time reclaiming those hours! - by LDSLADYDI
  • Couple well sealed bags of rice do the trick! - by KAUAICAROLANNN
  • Babies.
    Start lifting one baby with both hands, and as your strength increases, hold a baby in EACH hand. Borrow neighborhood babies of different sizes to create a full set of weights.

  • Have used cans, gallon milk jugs, water bottles but never a casserole dish. My luck - it would land on the floor in approximately 1,000 pieces. Peace. emoticon - by PROPMAN1
