I set my timer for 45 mins and get up and walk through the office and reset when I sit back down. Or I'll start a conversation on IM and when the person answers I know they are at their space so I get up and go visit instead of continuing to type.
Here in Boston we are having a major cold streak, with wind, fog, frozen rain and light snow. It's not pretty and it's not inviting. So...... I discovered Jessica Smith's youtube channel, which has all kinds of videos lasting 15 minutes. She has a body-sculpt video and it is fabulous. She also has a 30-minute walking video for indoors which includes HIIT intensity intervals. I'm going to use that next time it's too yucky out to walk.
My secret is walking with my dog. If I am not ready he will keep bugging me until I get up and walk. Even if he just got back from a walk with my son. It is his mission to get me out of the house and moving even for a couple of minutes or an hour walk.
