I randomly received the infographic below via e-mail.
I have blogged about being active while working before, though I no longer work here and things are too crazy at my current job to follow my stretch reminders that I used to set at my other old workplace.
Nowadays, I am a little less sedentary at my desk than I used to be, mostly because I'm running off to pump (hopefully not for that much longer, though!), go to the gym, get water, etc. I used to have days (pre-baby) when I would literally not move (or thereabouts) at my desk from 8-4 straight. I figured, I got my morning workout in... so I'm good!
But am I??
Sure, this is a promotion for a standing desk company, but I'm sure there's a lot of truth to this. Now, if standing at my desk for half of the workday could get me even close to this 11-marathon per year figure, I could get in better shape.
I have a co-worker who kind of made her desk a makeshift standing office by putting her laptop up high. Maybe I'll come up with something?? I work in a very analytical position, so I'd have to be good at spreadsheet-ing it while standing.
More to come!
