I throw in exercise at work wherever I can. A desk job doesn't permit much movement so in addition to Coach Nicoles exercises at your desk I have added the following: Jumping Jacks at the copier or while waiting for anyone or anything. Squats work also at the copier/fax. Use the stairs and get up and go to the persons office, don't use the phone or email. Lunges and squats while on the phone.

I started exercising after work, but sometimes I would wonder if I had anything left to exercise with. My solution for tiredness and blahs is to eat a snack before I leave work for the exercise session. I try to have it between 3.30 and 4, but sometimes it is later. I find protein is the most sustaining for this. My snack might be some cheese, cottage cheese with a little fruit or a boiled egg, or even a cup of soup.
The up side of exercising later is that it curbs my evening appetite. If I get home at 8.30 all I really want to eat is soup. If it's been a hard workout, sometimes I don't want to eat at all, I might rather go to bed. Then I wake up very ready for breakfast! 43
Alot of us say we don't have time to workout but I find that every hour when I get up at work I can exercise for 5 minutes. I do short circuts of three exercises (wall pushups, squats, etc) Then at lunch I go on a 25 minute walk. 8X5 is 40 minutes plus my 25 minute walk, that means I got 65 minutes of exercise at work!
