All of those minutes do add up!

This week I got a brand new exercise bicycle. Now I can only use it two minutes before I'm worn out. But I'll do that on and off through the day and it adds up considerably.

Walk/Run to the music

I cover the display on the treadmill while I'm walking/jogging and zone out to the music I'm listening. I'm not paying attention to the numbers and I tend to go farther and faster that way

Music/TV combo

Listen to your typical fast-beat motivational workout jam in your ears while watching your favorite tv show on mute with captions. This way you're totally stimulated - the tv show holds your interest for at least 30 minutes, and the music keeps you running or elliptical-ing at a steady fast pace!

Make a list of active things you can do without a lot of planning

I keep a couple of cheap kites in the trunk of my car for a quick active break on a beautiful windy day. Being inexpensive (cheap) they are very light weight so I don't have to have a lot of wind. And, instead of using that $3 in your pocket to buy junk food, take yourself for a bowling break.

Multi-tasking

I practice blocks, punches and kicks while walking the dog. It helps my practice, and nobody bothers me

Daily walking

The hospital where I work has a lot of long hallways so many employees here have a walking "circuit" throughout the hospital. Seeing others who are doing their daily walking there, I find myself being motivated to doing my daily walking as well.
