I know everyone has been wondering from a post a few weeks ago about my new stand up desk and how it has changed my life.
I suppose it has in a way. I now stand all day.
I’m still getting the occasional question asking how I’m getting along with it. As annoying as my “co-worker” is I know my answers repeated over and over again are getting to her (good).
“I really like it.”
“Don’t notice I’m standing.”
“Good for my back.”
“My neck doesn’t bother me anymore.”
While that is all true, it still hasn’t done what I got it for. After researching it thoroughly I found one can burn 70 – 90 calories per hour while standing. It still hasn’t put a dent in my weight. Now I wouldn’t go back to sitting again, but how disappointing!
Bottom line, I’m no thinner, but I would certainly recommend a stand up desk anyway, it makes me look taller.
