It's good for your career to be seen around the office. These aerobic exercises will help to keep your weight down and your profile high.

  • To keep your projects and your body moving, visit colleagues rather than e-mailing them.
  • Drink a lot of water. Research suggests that drinking water can aid in your weight loss efforts [source: Jampolis]. Plus, the more trips to the restroom, the more calories you'll burn. To increase the calorie count, visit a restroom further away from your desk. You might also run into some new people along the way.
  • Always walk fast without running. It'll get your heart beating faster and make it look like you have somewhere important to be.
  • Take the stairs whenever possible instead of elevator. For a better workout, take the steps two at a time.
