Getting in a little extra - while heating up my lunch at work, I'll do leg abductions or adductions; when brushing my teeth, same thing. Also, I sit at a desk, so butt crunches, stand and do push ups off my desk, anything to keep the blood flowing and get that little extra in.

When you don't really have enough time to go to the gym (or like me - you just don't have one near to where you live and you don't have a car) - invest in your home gym. Yoga mat (I got mine for 6 EUR), resistance bands (sale - 5 for a set!!!), stability ball and a jump rope. And you have all you need to start moving!
I got all those things (and the overall bill is still less than a membership at the gym) and I can squeeze in a portion of exercise anytime in between. I am independent from anything, I decide when and how long I train. And having so much to choose from at home, I do much more.
I decided to plan what I want to exercise, but do it when I can. I have already done 30 minutes on my bike, just by taking 5 minutes here and there. This way it isn't a huge chunk of time at once, but I still work out the amount I want.
