Online Classes Wii Fit Plus

I am taking online classes Full Time.
Great savings for wear on the car and all expenses involved with driving over an hour.
But... no hiking accross the parking lot or hauling books up and down stairs.
So.... the two hours of driving I am not doing each day is easily spent on the Wii Fit Plus as a breat away from the computer every hour. emoticon

Hand Weights

Keeping hand weights at my desk helps me to squeeze in time for toning arms and upper body. I take two 15 minutes at work and I get up from my desk and use the weights to work my tris, bis, shoulders and upper back. I got funny looks at first and then my co-worker joined me and now it's become a normal practice. emoticon

Getting water in while you are at your desk

So, I just started here at SP. One of the things that my Wife has encouraged me to do is to get a good water bottle and fill it before I go to work and drink from that. A HUGE secret that I've found about myself is that if I have the bottle of water at my desk but off to the side, I will drink very little - like not even touch it. The trick is to keep it in front of me, near my monitor so it's always within view. Instinctivly, I reach for it, take a few sips, put it back.

Create Free Standing Computer Desk

Create a standing computer desk, or use an existing surface to compute and surf the net from a standing position. You will burn more calories, exercise posture muscles and, in general, promote better health than doing it sitting all the time.

Try a treadmill desk!

I walk on a treadmill with a desk over it while I work all day. I get in an extra 6 - 10 miles depending on the day, burning between 600 and 1000 calories! emoticon
