I play games on my iphone while using the elliptical, so I get my game fix and my exercise all at once. You might also try some of the interactive games like Wii and Playstation, thereby increasing the chance that you will grow to enjoy/crave/be addicted to a little exercise, meanwhile keeping mom off your back.
However I will admit that as a mom, the witch within frequently shuts the TV off and chases the kids outside with a broom. So it would probably also be a great idea if you were to find an outside activity that you enjoy like bike riding or skate boarding, basketball, rock climbing, etc etc. Because most likely your mom has a broom too.
