Hike

Like walking only better! Burns about twice the calories and even more when you are piggy backing a 40 lb child for part of the time, plus it's fun!!

Slide around in your socks

I recently heard that sliding around hard floors in your socks for 10 minutes burns around 150 calories. And it's fun, too!

Just Dance

I got the Wii game Just dance for my family for Easter. We have had so much fun dancing and challenging each other to see who can get the highest points.
It is a great cardio workout and we send time together!

CLEAN AND GET FIT AT THE SAME TIME

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!

Exercise and the TV

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.

"Suck It Up Soldier"

Any weapon at my disposal in this battle of the buldge, I will use! When I am seated at my computer (painfully slow) I pass the time with stretches and squeezes. Little bit helps a lot.
