I work a lot of odd shifts, going back and forth between nightshift and daylight. When I am working a shift I'm not going to be able to workout, I sneak some in with an extra flight of stairs. There's a stairwell at work that I use all the time, I normally only have to go to the 2nd floor, but I sneak in some extra steps by climbing to the 3rd before I go back down to the floor I need to be on.
Park further away. Whether shopping, at work, or running errands, those extra steps add up. You can easily add a few hundred extra steps per day just by parking at the far end of the parking lot and if you are someplace where you have to pay for parking you may save money too. Those extra calories burned by those extra steps will add up to extra weight lost.
