I myself work in Boulder, one of the healthiest cities in America and I still feel like I could use more physical activity. Physical activity is not only great in quickening your weight loss; it also increases your mental health and can relieve stress. A really easy way to incorporate physical activity to your day is to take a 30 minute walk during your lunch hour at work, add a 10 minute break in your morning and afternoon if possible and walk around your building (outside). I figured out that a walk to the grocery store for me from my apartment takes 20 minutes so by walking to the store, getting only what I can carry in my backpack at a reasonable weight and walking back home is a great workout and 2 mile walk. I often time listen to classes on my walks. Want to go the extra mile (no pun intended)? Add a small weight routine to your week, 2 or 3 times/week. I found an easy quick fit 15-minute exercise program on www.pbs.org/americaswalking/health/quickfit.html
