    Play Wii Fit! Sounds like a joke but I lost over a stone and cured a dodgy leg I had. (Really I would get out of bed, find my leg didn't work and fall over, but playing computer games sorted that out)

    Well I'm trying to get back into shape.. I gained a lot of weight over the years. So I've been working out to my Taebo dvd. I'm also doing sets of jump roping, crunches, and push ups.

    Walk or ride bike instead of driving. Saves money too!

    I exercise at home, weights, crunches, press-ups etc. It makes a lot of difference to work out- i never used to and now i've never felt so healthy. Plus im starting to get a hot body xD

    I used to use fitness videos, but now I occasionally use Wii Fit, along with various other Wii games that involve a lot of movement of the body. I usually do that once every day or two, with Wii Fit around twice a month. It doesn't produce spectacular results since I don't take it that seriously, but it keeps me from gaining too much weight.

    Today I rode my bike 27 kilometres. That was a mistake. Another mistake: not bringing water along.

    I also run and do pushups/situps/squats/pullups.

    And does sex count?!

    Nor do I do anything else just to stay in shape...

    Indeed, much of it is to get sex!
