Well last night I did sit on the couch watching the Biggest Loser all while eating a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, ( I did feel just a tiny bit guilty) but... sometimes a good sweet and a slouch on the old couch is due. Just not everyday.
1) Move, maybe walk on the tread mill (or your favorite exercise equipment) in front of the TV. Exercise for 10 minutes, rest for 10 and repeat
2) Grab an old hoola hoop and give it a swirl. No doubt you'll be as entertaining as what's on the tube.
3) Get up every commercial and do some crunches, sit ups etc.
4) This could be a good time to fold clothes or iron with a few squats between
Be creative. I'd love to hear your suggestions. The more choices we have the more active we'll become and the healthier we'll get.
