Climbing Stairs

I have been doing what Nicole recommended. We live in a two story house. I go up and down all the time. When I want to go upstairs, I walk up and turn around and walk down. Then I go back up the stairs. It works the same when going downstairs. For me that is an extra 30 extra steps each time I do it.

Put That Exercise On "PAUSE"--You Heard me!

When I decide to do a chore, read a bit, watch tv, or anything else, I pop in my exercise dvd/video for the day. Whenever I need a break, I turn it on and work out as hard as I can for up to ten minutes. I then put the dv/video on "pause" and go back to whatever it was I was involved in. Doing short spurts of intensive exercising really pushes my body. I am more inclined to push to the limit for ten minutes, rather than complete a dvd/tape in one sitting I garner maximum calorie range in a short

Get a more active job

I have had many desk jobs where I sit at a desk most of the day without much activity. My secret was to get a more active job where so that I can get in my exercise as a work. I don't really like sitting at a desk all day anyway.

Jury Duty

When I was on jury duty, I used the lunch break to eat, then walk around the courthouse block 4 times. I also used the bathroom stall to do wall pushups, standing ab twists/air punches, squats, lunges, knee raises, and tricep dips (it helps to use the handicap bathroom if available, for more space and the bar for tricep dips.)

Be more Inefficient

I read an article on Sparkpeople about getting more exercise/movement in and one of the tips was to be more inefficient which I have really taken to heart. When I'm not in a huge rush, I will take 4 trips to the laundry room, many more steps to clean up (picking only one item up at a time), going to the fridge multiple times (not to eat more food but to prepare meals). It really adds up and keeps my body in motion. Plus I try to do little exercises while doing this - squats, calf lifts, etc

Sneaking in Exercise Every Work Hour

Unless I'm in a meeting or on a call I have my task manager alarm set to ding me once an hour - I then get up and MOVE - Could be squats, wall push ups, calf raises, marching in place or just stretching. This way by the end of the day I've added in extra bits of movement and feel great!

Morning Exercise

I find that I do much better when I start my day with yogilates. It is great stretches, that really wakes up your body. After that I am ready to do other exercise such as cardio or strength training.

A body in motion, stays in motion!
