I work in a very small office in a hospital. We are somewhat tethered to our phones. About every half hour or so I will stand up and walk in place and still answer the phone. Or I will just walk in a circle for a few minutes. Then at break time I can get a steady 20 to 25 minutes of walking time.
Wow, you have the best exercise equipment in your home, your stairs. Put a timer going and walk up and down the stairs for just 5 minutes to start. You can get up from your desk hourly and walk just 5 minutes around or just walk up and down your stairs once. You can walk in place during commercials if you watch tv, which is usually 3 minutes and 17 seconds when I timed it years ago. These are all things I've done. I don't have stairs anymore at my new home.

I've joined this group because I need to get in the habit of exercising daily.I work from home, sit in front of a computer a lot of the day, so some days my exercise consists of rolling out of bed, walking to my desk, and walking downstairs to the kitchen and back up (several times a day).
I would like to get into the habit of taking a short walk every day (well, plan for a short one, but hope that it turns into being a longer one because I am enjoying it); and I have also just started the 21 day kettlebell challenge, so I thought I would incorporate that as well.
My focus is on the kettlebell challenge, so my goal is to do the challenge every day, and hopefully do some walking as well.
