I use my surroundings to get in "extra" exercise. I "live" and work downstairs in my townhouse but the upstairs is part of my home/life and I have a list of things I can/need to do upstairs. I always use the upstairs bathroom, for example, not the downstairs one, etc. 206
As much as possible, I take the stairs at work and add stair trips at home. If I have several things to take upstairs or downstairs at home, I break it into manageable chunks and make more trips up and down the stairs. At work, unless I am carrying something that I couldn't manage on the staircase (which really isn't all that often) I take the stairs. Our staircases at school are extraordinarily steep, so this is almost a workout all by itself!
