I don't get regular breaks at my office and have to workout like a mad woman at the gym on my way home for 60-90 minutes. Regular lunch breaks would be nice to take a walk outside :(, the days are getting so short it will soon be dark at 5pm.
It's not really productive for work, BUT, I walk to the farthest bathroom (and with all the water, I go there several times a day). Each time I walk there, I try to walk faster than the last. And when I'm in there I do wall push ups, squats and side bends.
I only do about 10-15 of each so I don't take too much time, but it gets my heart rate up.

I work in a cubicle den too. My co workers have seen me do side bends, lunges, even squats at my desk. My boss got so inspired she brought in a weighted hoola hoop and we have permission to use it in her office meeting space whenever we take a break. I take the long way to the bathroom whenever I can and walk the halls three times a week during my half hour lunch break. Also consider swapping out your chair for your exercise ball a couple times a week. These all keep me moving and keep my hips from spreading.
Either we conform, our desires to the truth or we conform the truth to our desires.
So there was a pizza party at work today, I ate the pizza but planned it the night before and made sure it fit with my calorie range however I dont want to now sit for another 4 hours in my cubicole! I told my co workers to ignore my standing and they are cool with it but what I want to know is, any ideas for exercises while in the cube? Thanks in advance for your assistance!
