On my 12 hour work days, I do not plan on exercise, but I do wear my pedometer at work (my new toy) and if the numbers are low mid day, I will try for a walk around the hospital.
On my 8 hour work days, I will probably do some planned exercise but it may be less depending on how many steps/miles are on the pedometer.
