I've been trying to get more activity in during the day as that = less time sitting an watching telly. Pretty much I can't beat cleaning, no matter how much I do there is always more to do. I also garden, an hour spent pulling weeds is a great upper body workout. I get my normal exersize walking and try and do two lots a day. My body is getting ultra toned which I'm really happy about and the house is looking much better then it used to , so is the garden, Oh and my dogs thank me for all the walks
One thing I've found that helps me alot is audio books, I plug myself into one and the rules are I can only listen to them while being active, I'm finding I get so into the story that I want to keep doing something so I can listen longer, it's great! I get them from the local library so it doesn't cost me anything. I guess the only downside is my t.v is getting dusty from lack of use, guess I can live with that!
