That's what I'm doing.
In the morning when I arrive to work, I park my car as far as I can from the door to the building. Instead of going for coffee in the morning, I go for a 15-20 minute walk. I always take the stairs, only three flights. At noon, after eating my lunch, I go for a 40 minute walk. Throughout the day, I try to maximise my steps. Three weeks ago, I received a standing desk at work and while I'm waiting for my computer to refresh, I take a few more steps. I also deposit any garbage in the lunch room garbage bin and not in the waste basket in my cubicle. After work, when I pick up the ingredients for supper, I again park far from the supermarket. After supper, I take a final 30-40 minute walk. By the end of the day, I have taken 20,000 or more steps or approximately 15 km.
As you can see, my strategy has changed since I started out on my journey to become lean and fit. Now, I only make it to the gym once a week to lift weights. Importantly, I want to lose fat but retain my muscle mass, so the time spent in the gym (only 1 hour) focuses on building muscle, and the fat loss comes through my non-exercise physical activity: walking, standing, doing the dishes, making supper, ironing clothes, etc. In other words, I want to keep the slow burning fat loss going as long as I can during the day and to avoid sitting for long bouts like the plague.
Speaking about the plague of excessive sitting, I invite you to read the following article: Confirmed: He Who Sits the Most Dies the Soonest.
In closing, for anyone who sets out on the Cross Canada Challenge from east to west, there is a special moment when arriving in Thunder Bay, the place where Terry Fox had to abandon his Marathon of Hope for health reasons. Terry, wherever you are, you inspired a nation, and we are forever humbled by your courage.
God bless you Terry.
