We have three print stations in our office. I changed my computer setting to print from the machine furthest from my cubicle - and early in the day, before most other people arrive, I skip, hop, jog or walk backwards to and from the print station. Every little it helps - and this just wakes me up during my shift. ♥

I'm a busy, busy person that has to stick to a plan to fit in exercise. Even then, I sometimes find that I have to be creative it fit it in. Two of my favorite ways to do that are to take the stairs at work and to walk during my lunch hour. That way, even if I don't get my full 60 minutes in after work, I can feel like I've done something to burn some calories. It CAN be done!
I don't have (but want!) a treadmill, so I have to get creative. Instead of walking on a treadmill while watching tv, I will sometimes walk back and forth across my living room- walking forward one way and backwards the other way to use some extra muscles.
Think creative ways to add exercise through out the day. Do squats next to the bed, while making breakfast add a few calf raises. After sitting awhile, use your chair to do dips working your arms, add lunges walking down a hall. Stand against a wall and squat! This all adds up.
