Try sitting up (not touching the seat back) while you are driving in the car. It is surprisingly hard to do for the whole time (I think the seat belt provides extra resistance) and works your abs while you drive!
Exercise is a tough thong for many people, but try it, start slow and keep working on consistence and increasing your time. The funny thing is that those lovely endorphins will kick in and you feel great. You will want more and slowly start to like it!!
I march when I brush my teeth, I use an electric tooth brush so I know I'm getting at least 2 minutes twice a day. then I march while folding clothes are any thing when I'm just standing, those extra steps add up..I also march at commercial time if I'm watching TV..better than staying still. I
When you go to the mall for a shopping spree, spend the first 30 minutes just walking laps. Then when you begin your shopping, you will feel even better about buying new clothes, and you will probably spend less because you will be tired sooner and want to leave earlier!

If you have always wanted to be a runner, you can!! All it takes is a great pair of running shoes and alot of patience. Start from the very beginning. 1 minute walking, 1 minute running and increase very slowly! In no time you'll be running one mile, then two, then three, etc.
when it rains and i can't go for my daily walk, i play dance dance revolution. it even has a workout mode to help me track how many calories i burned. wii fit is also a good one also. and it's fun! :D
My way to be sure I get some exercise every day is to start while I'm still in bed. I do bicycle legs lying in or on my bed. Then when I stand up I keep going with some squats & arm circles & other things. It gets me awake & moving & even if I don't get to the big stuff later, I've done SOMETHING!
