Squeezing in extra exercise
Squeeze in a little extra exercise while you're watching TV. During the commercials, stand up or sit on the floor and do some simple exercises, like stretching, jumping jacks, or push-ups and sit-ups with bent knees. Grab a can of soup or a water bottle as a stand-in for a small hand weight and do a set of arm curls or other strength-building exercises.
