When I have just too much to do around the house that there's practically no time for exercise at all, I create an upbeat playlist then dance my way off through cleaning. Each song works as a timer as well like, move my hips and finish cleaning the counters by the end of the song!..It works!
I have a stability ball and an exercise bike in the living room in front of the TV. If I am watching TV, I need to be sitting on one or the other. The time goes by quickly while I am watching my favorite shows and I am strengthening various parts of the body in the meantime.
I've got two little ones at home, so I find that in order to get my workouts in, I need to get up before they do and just DO IT. It's not always easy to roll out of bed to workout but then I have NO excuses. It's done & out of the way for the day. Truly essential to my success!
