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.

Yay! Here's for the 3rd month of keeping track of exercise minutes! Thanks for starting this up, Tomandkara! (not that *anyone* can squeeze in quite as much exercise as you! ) Skinnydogmom I wear a pedometer at work too! Some days I've logged 14,000 steps at work!!
Goal : 1400 minutes
