Fit in Exercise at Work: Lunch Hour Walk

Work It Girl: Organize a Lunch Hour Walk

Shorter days combined with increased social obligations (read: Christmas parties) and extra errands (read: Christmas shopping) can really cut into your gym time. To maximize your time and fit some stress reducing exercise into your compacted schedule, why not organize a lunch hour walk? If you organize a few of your work mates to get out and about and walk with you the chance of flaking out decreases. You get to burn some calories and breathe some fresh air. Talk about a win/win situation. Plus, you can gossip while you walk! Now that is efficient multi-tasking!

It's still too hot and humid here in Florida to do this in work clothes.

I walk to and from work, and I walk for thirty minutes every day for lunch!

Since, we really don't have a lunch hour, a friend of mine and I take walks when we hit the point where we want to chuck our computers out the window. It started off as a snack run but has turned into more of a decompressing walk. Some days we have different schedules but we try and give each other a heads up when we have free time and it really helps to chat or vent.
