I live in a small town where a drive to "town" to shop takes planning. Drive-thrus were once my down-fall. Now I load the cooler in my car with slices of "light" bread, Deli-Select meat, fruits/vegs in snack bags as well as reduced-fat cheese strings. And plenty of water w/SF drink packets. Now I "picnic" in the parking lot when I shop. Or find a quiet park somewhere to refresh before I finish shopping.

It's easy to reach 10,000 steps at work when you go to the next furthest water cooler for refills, go to the far restroom. Try walking to your co-workers instead of e-mailing. I work in an auto plant and found that I can reach 1/3 of my goal in the first two hours of the day just by "going long".
Get a pedometer for starters. If you're just starting out get a simple one.
