    Great ideas here. Thanks.

    The upside: A useful tip, it works, it's great.
The downside: I must try to remember!

I try to remember to walk around the kitchen while the kettle is boiling - it's a new habit to get into and I'm not doing as well as I should. School report: "7 out of 10. Must try harder!"

    if I can't get my work outs in for whatever reason, I fidget. cooking...I stand on my tip toes and lower several times. Walk on my heels a little bit, do standing crunches while brushing my teeth or stirring whatever cooking...etc...
