You don't have to excercise alone. Take your buddy with you, walking your pet will burn up great calories for you and your pet and if you have a great friendly dog or cat it's a great way to meet new friends. While you might remember to take your bottle of water with you don't forget a great way to get some water for your pup or kitty, Get an empty bottle of water the same size as the bottle your taking with you. Cut the bottom off about six inches up. (be sure theres no sharp edges. Slide this cute little bowl over the bottom of your full bottle it should hang on pretty well. Then when you get a drink be sure to use your new pooch bowl for your buddy. Most importantly have fun and get closer to your buddy. :)
