I felt like my butt was getting wider every time I got on the computer because I was sitting, so now I have it on the island in the kitchen and I stand up while I'm on it. I'm almost constantly moving so it's got to be better than sitting.

I do leg extensions, wall push ups, calf raises, standing hip abductions, downward dog, etc while at work.
It's so easy to slip in these short exercises while on the phone. You don't need any special equipment or much room to do them. I find it's a great way to stay energized and focused through out the day.
These shoes are wonderful. I wear them to work every day and can really feel a difference in my legs. They are pricey, but it's worth it. When these shoes wear out, I will definitely get another pair. They are so comfortable and only took a couple days to get used to them.
I chose these over the shape-ups because I read reviews that said they were hard to stand still in.
When I am at work, I take strength training breaks twice a day.
In the bathroom, I do 2 reps of wall push-ups, 2 reps of wall rocking (chair rocking without the chair), wall squats, standing adduction and standing abduction, just to name a few. If anything can be done standing. Take 5-10 minutes of you down time or break time to add a little strength training.104
