My recumbet bike

I am a reader with my kindle when I ride my bike I get lost in my book and forget had long I've been riding way I don't feel any quilt about reading instead of doing something else. I am retired so I am lucky I can exercise and read when I want to even in the middle of the night.

Fitting in extra steps

When I go grocery shopping, I park the cart in an out-of-the-way spot and bring armloads of groceries back to it. I get more steps in and it's great for when the store's crowded; I can duck and weave through the people with carts and get my shopping done faster than people who push their cart everywhere they go.

No More Elevators!

No matter where I am, or where I'm going, I only take the stairs. At the airport with luggage? Stairs! At work on the 6th floor? Stairs! At the mall, movie theater, stadium? STAIRS! It was hard at first but now I don't even think about it.

Starting out slow and giving your body time to adjust

Most people start out exercising full on and when they feel the pain, they back off. I start out slow and add exercises and repetitions slowly. This gives my body time to adjust to the extra exercise time and repetitions.
There is no need to hurt yourself and make exercising something to avoid. Make it easy and fun. Add an exercise a month if you like.

Climbing Stairs

I have been doing what Nicole recommended. We live in a two story house. I go up and down all the time. When I want to go upstairs, I walk up and turn around and walk down. Then I go back up the stairs. It works the same when going downstairs. For me that is an extra 30 extra steps each time I do it.

Put That Exercise On "PAUSE"--You Heard me!

When I decide to do a chore, read a bit, watch tv, or anything else, I pop in my exercise dvd/video for the day. Whenever I need a break, I turn it on and work out as hard as I can for up to ten minutes. I then put the dv/video on "pause" and go back to whatever it was I was involved in. Doing short spurts of intensive exercising really pushes my body. I am more inclined to push to the limit for ten minutes, rather than complete a dvd/tape in one sitting I garner maximum calorie range in a short
