  • I too like to break up my work outs so that they fit into my schedule, not the other way around. I do all of my stretching and strength training early in the day and my cardio on my lunch break , either a walk outside or on my treadmill. If I am crunched for time on my lunch I do cardio after dinner, either taking a nice long walk with my neighbor and friends or on my treadmill - 6/19/2008 7:50:04 AM
  • I tried it this morning when my daughter woke up at 5:30 and I had some time before I needed to get up and start the day. I think it even helped my lunchtime workout seem better! - 5/5/2008 9:23:30 AM
  • Breaking up the exercises in 10 minute spurts is a GREAT idea.. I break my workouts to two times a day.. Cardio every morning fro 30 minutes and, strength training later in the evening or afternoon - 5/4/2008 9:54:27 AM

    I used to think this all of the time. I now do a great 15minute stretching exercise tape in the morning to get me energized for the morning. I take a 15-30 minute walk during lunch. I then do the stretching tape or a walk in the evening with my mp3 player to reflect on the day. I have less cravings during the day by walking. - 5/4/2008 7:45:57 AM

    Yes the 10 minutes are great instead of the all or nothing attitude. Sometimes I do 2 laps at work and 2 laps in the evening to make my 3 miles a week goal. - 4/14/2008 4:38:39 PM

  • I used to work in a law firm as a Paralegal, and I would fill my lunch break with a great walk. I would eat before I left for my walk and then walk the entire hour. It was a GREAT way to eat healtier (because I brought my own lunch when everyone else went out for lunch) and then I would walk it all off! It also gave me more energy to finish my day at the firm. I loved it and looked forward to it every day! - 4/13/2008 9:13:06 PM
  • At my job, I have 2-15 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch, I use every minute for a high intensity workout, I walk 4 miles in this time period, and then I eat every 2 hours at my desk, but always healthy foods that will keep my energy up. This leaves my entire evening open to spend with my son! And if we work out at night together, with a walk, or the park, then I have more exercise in...this is a great suggestion! - 4/12/2008 9:11:56 PM
  • It's a good stress reliever to get out and walk. This sounds so much more realistic to me and makes alot of sense. I think we can all take 10 minutes for ourselves a few times a day. Thanks for the advice. - 4/12/2008 9:00:49 PM

    These 10 minute bits help me increase my circulation...my extremities get really cold sometimes, so it helps get the blood flowing again :) - 3/27/2008 1:01:22 PM
  • I have done exercises in the file room at work, calf raised and squats. - 3/26/2008 12:33:50 PM
  • In six months I've learned that it's not how long, or intense the workout, but the consistancy that made the difference. Lost 86 inches without straining. - 3/25/2008 8:40:50 PM

    It does all add up. Somedays my life is in bits and pieces, along with my exercese! But I figure if I have time for t.v., I have time for exercise! - 3/17/2008 9:51:30 PM
  • I've started to do wall push ups and other strength exercises at work, its a great way to break up the day and get the blood flowing. - 3/12/2008 11:02:17 AM
