Make time this week to incorporate some strength building exercise. The playground is a good place to start. Use the monkey bars to lift yourself up, do lunges against a park bench or step-ups. Every little bit counts.
Try some strengthening exercises you haven't already tried. Here's some ideas to get you started:
Instead of watching TV or being online, take the dog for a walk or head outside and play for 15 minutes during the time you would usually spend being inactive.
If your family is watching TV, be active while watching for 10 minutes. You could all fold laundry, stretch, do sit-ups or jumping jacks... basically anything that gets you huffing and puffing a bit.
