Belly fat: You cannot preferentially lose fat from one specific area of the body (naturally). However, overall weight loss will contribute to loss over different body areas. Exercise can be used to firm, tone and sculpt.

Daily activities: A good place to start would be making your daily activities more difficult - take the stairs, park further away, bike/ walk to work/ store, sit on a swiss ball/ at your desk and stand up every time you answer the phone, or lunge/ hop/ jump from place to place in your house. Things like these may seem small and silly, but the increased calorie burn can add up over time.
