    Last night during the ad breaks instead of putting the kettle on I went up and down the stairs as many times as i could before the programme came back on, the break is 3 min long and through out the evening i did that 6 times and felt that it was at least some good short burst of exercise.
    Anyone else with good tips? Maria x

    Shabba you are naughty girl and you now must get to the breaks and pause it for 5 mins instead of 3, the rest of you get full marks for effort.
    Hahaha Maria xx

    I tend to do crunches/sit ups, push ups and sometimes weights during ad breaks.
