    Managed 4000 steps on lunch break today. Happy with that. Hopefully the nice weather continues!

    Me too! I was walking at lunch for awhile but winter hit and I haven't gotten back to it. Love your idea of doing something at your desk each hour. I think I would be less drained by the end of the day if I did something.

    I workout after work, either lift or bike usually. Feel free to add me too. Just got back on MFP recently.

    Anyone can add me! If I sit at my desk all day I’m at 1,500 steps. If I make an effort to move more, my daily is at 3,000. I just have to work extra hard after work to get steps in!

    I am back from a 2 week business trip. Time to get going again. Todays deskercise is going to be: 1 minute plank once every hour. Feel free to join in or let the rest of us know what your deskercises will be today

    Hey all you desk jockies! Todays deskercise challenge for me is 20 pushups every hour. What is your days challenge to keep fit while sitting at your desk?

    I'm at a desk for 8ish hours per day as well. I try and get up every hour for a walk around the small office building I work in and sneak away outside for a 10 minute walk twice a day. Like others mentioned, I work extra hard after work to get my 10k+ steps in a day.

    I, too, work at a desk. What I've been doing for the past 6 weeks is to go down and back up the stairs (2 flights) after I go to the bathroom. I also go for a walk after I have lunch. I make a conscious effort to move more while in the office. If I put the kettle on for tea, I take my teabag to my desk and come back, then I take my spoon, etc. I believe it has helped. I should try and do some squats or planks or something like other posters have mentioned.

    I sit at my desk for the most part as well. But I make up for by walking on my 15 mins breaks, twice a day. But then i get it in in the gym too, at least try to double the cardio that I have done by that point in the day.

    Add me if you want to. Each one, Teach one.
