I think every little thing you can do will help. In the case of ankle/wrist weights (or even a weighted vest) it can really add some resistance to the activities you normally do. It might be a little exhausting at first, but think of how easy all those chores and work will be once you have a set-aside workout time and all the weights come off!
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.
