To avoid eating seconds, before eating dinner I pack the leftovers in individual sized containers to take to work for lunch. Since all the leftovers are already packed away, it is hard to go for seconds.

12 minute, body weight only workouts...pike squats, jump squats, reverse planks...all while on a 30 second interval timer. Do what you can for 30 seconds and move on to the next workout. Do cardio before and stretching after to avoid straining.
Good examples of the ones I am doing on found here...www.bodyrock.tv
Every time I get up from my computer to go to the restroom, I do intervals of 20 seconds jumping jacks,10 seconds rest; 20 seconds high knees, 10 seconds rest; 20 seconds jump rope followed by 10 seconds rest. And finally, I do 20 squats or 20 wall pushups. It wakes me up and allows me to add a few extra fitness minutes into my day. It really adds up.
Ten seconds is not a long time. Five seconds is even shorter. When you start feeling like you're ready to give up, just hang in there for another ten seconds. Wow! You're ten seconds closer to your goal! That wasn't hard; now do another ten seconds. Before you know it, you'll have finished as planned.
