I take my daughter to a local park that has a 1.8 mile loop. We walk that 3 times a week, and I bring a new scavenger hunt list with me every time, if we can find all the items we get to do something of her choice. The rest of the time when the weather is nice we go to a splash pad, or a huge play park nearby, and stay there for at least an hour. I read my book, and she plays with the kids that are there, it's a great break for both of us. But we live in Iowa, so the weather can be yucky during some of the year, so we have a rule when we can't go outside we have to get up and do jumping jacks, march in place, whatever during commercials. Plus we have a WII and I got the game Just Dance 2, it is some good physical activity when you can't get outside. I think if you become fitness and fun minded you can always find a way to be more active.
