Yes definitely there is always something you can do to boost your metabolism. I like doing arm exercises when I'm on the couch - putting each arm straight out from the side and moving them in small circles. That's easy and good for you.

This might sound funny, but I jiggle my legs all day long at the computer. It's just a habit. I was just thinking it's probably a little bit of exercise and good for my circulation to boot.

Does anyone else jiggle their legs all day?

I have a foot rest that my feet go on that rotates back and forth. It's supposed to be bad for your legs to just "sit there" all day long without motion, so I definitely believe in having motion.

Five pound weights, good for you!! I have little one pound and two pound weights. That is a *great* idea for sitting on the TV. Everybody should have those by their couch!

that *is* a great idea. it just takes the mindset that watching the TV should be 'good for you' time.

I even have slip-on weights that go over the ankles. I just need to figure out where I stashed those smile The real problem is that I normally don't watch TV much at all. I am done updating all my Persuasion files ... but I don't have any pages up on Emma so I suppose I should start that next. That'll be at least 10 hours of TV watching, to get through all the versions of that ...

OK I found two hand-grip five pound weights, one for each hand. I have them right by the couch now. You guys have inspired me! They look like this but they're blue.



Those are on Amazon -
