Baby-Steps to Exercising O.O

Any tips on free, easy ways to take the very first baby-steps toward exercising? I'm nearly allergic to any form of standard exercise, so I'm looking for things that are NOT exercise but still get the job done ... and i'm going to purchase an egg timer to help me track how long I can stand to do anything suggested here :)

creative ideas...........or not so creative but ideas...

**Walking the dog (or neighbors dog)
**doing cardio laundry or any house cleaning
**walking the neighborhood w/a friend - or walk to get a cup of tea/coffee
**turning on the Tv to a music channel or the exercise channel - if you have it
** chat with a friend on the phone to see who can to the most pushups/crunches (whatever) and make a bet- winner buys coffee when you get together for a walk
**go up and down stairs in your house to soem upbeat music
My best suggestion, is just to make it a goal to walk for at least 15 min 4 days a week. If you walk more then 15 min (i find that i do) I started with this and am not up to 45 min4-5 times a weel. For me, it was not that i hate exercise, in fact i like it but have a hard time making it a proirity. Its SLOWLY becoming habit;)
GOOD LUCK!

Train for something.

I hate exercising......but I used to be athletic. I am now training for a triathlon to lose weight and love the variety of activities.....you could train for a running race or a run/walk. There are lots of free training programs on the internet.

My program makes me feel like an athlete and I am gaining confidence in my abilities....

Got kids? Play hide and seek or some other physical activity with them. Play catch or put up a volley ball net. If you are in the house you can pretend to be animals(crawling actually works up a great sweat). Try dancing to music videos on TV. Some cable and satellite channels have exercise programs at different times of the day. Go for a walk around the neighborhood or go to the local park and walk. You do not have to spend a ton of money to make a difference. Just get active. Some communities even have "adult" sports teams. Join a softball team or a bowling team. Go swimming in the summer.

New: The PEERtrainer Cheat System
The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
