I stand instead of sit when ever possible. I have to wait for the bus so I stand until the bus comes. I also have to sit in classes so I try and stand, or get up to get something as much as possible. Standing burns more calories than sitting

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.
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.
