I have just started chair marching, but I do it on my planning period and at lunch.
"Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the life that weight and ill health have stolen. For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great.. You have no power over me."
I am limited to pool workouts right now. I found that in the deep water I can arrange myself to sit with my noodle under myself like a chair and have more movement. I can do marching movements without the pain of sitting in a chair.

Computer time...but it is problematic as my lower back is in very painful shape most days. I do at least 10 minutes each day no matter what. Sometimes stand and do 'core exercise' with marching in place for 5 minutes. Its a real challenge.

While working on the computer - I'm on it at least 7hrs a day!! Sometimes while on the phone Yesterday - in the Doctor's waitingroom Next week I'll be doing Chair Marching during my 4hr trip each way
I also - march in place on occasion -while chopping veg for meals, or while stirring a cooking pot,or while waiting for the microwave - I find standing still for a time I get very sore - but marching on the spot while I do things makes it easier to stand for longer - and being weight bearing exercise is another great form of exercise and really helps balance too - You don't have to lift your legs far while doing things - just lift the feet gently - you will find itmakes a lot of difference to your ability to stand for a time!!
