keep money in wallet at work
When at work I have to wear a uniform. So I keep all my money in my wallet in my backback which is in my locker. I'm not tempted to spend on the vending machines. That also saves on calories.

So I look weird, but when I'm waiting for the bus I always pace around getting in some walking. When I have a pedometer on I can get up to 2,000 steps or more on it.
random acts of fitness
when press for time every little bit of exercise helps. Try running errands, or sneaking in a bit of walking while waiting for the bus or carpool. It may look stupid, but the benifits will be great.
