I throw in exercise at work wherever I can. A desk job doesn't permit much movement so in addition to Coach Nicoles exercises at your desk I have added the following: Jumping Jacks at the copier or while waiting for anyone or anything. Squats work also at the copier/fax. Use the stairs and get up and go to the persons office, don't use the phone or email. Lunges and squats while on the phone.

Half that portion! I half the portion of whatever i'm about to eat. If it can't be halved without wasting part then I don't eat it Example: Sandwich you can half & save for later...cookie you would have to share if a person is available or throw the half away if you have no one to share it with. IF I would have to waste it then I don't eat it. Planning!
