I always park FAR out in the parking lot, and count the steps to and from my floor, on my pedometer. Another trick....take the stairs , not the elevator! On my break, I like to walk the halls at night, (hospital). Can log quite a bit during that time.
Everyday I make sure I get at least 200 jumping jacks in, either leaving the bathroom at work, 25-30 each break or taking the dogs out while at home. And making time for the Quick Fire of the DAY spikes my metabolism
Having a routine helps me stay focused. This is the main reason why I love spark- it helps me set a routine- get home -fix dinner- open spark- spin the wheel- input food - input activity- look at my team's blog. It is work in progress
I have my workout stuff, everything needed: socks, shoes, sport bra, water etc., right by my bed so when the alarm goes off at 5am I just roll over and put them on. My treadmill is in my bedroom as well, so then I just take a few steps to hop on it and get moving.
