My desk makes me fat?

The hospital that I work with posted this article to Facebook.  So here I am thinking that I am living a much more active lifestyle only to find out that perhaps I'm not.  I am not naive.  I get that sitting at my desk all day is not entirely healthy.  But seriously, I work my ass off at the gym and try to not sit around when I'm at home. 


I have a 12,500 step goal each day.  And I struggle to reach it.  Why, because my butt is sitting in a desk chair 90% of the day.  This month has been the exception because of the 100 mile challenge I've been doing.  I've made my step goal and then some every day but one.  I'm already screwed on the heart disease front thanks to my genetics.  I don't need to have my job exacerbate the situation.  The bottom line is that I need to move more during my work day.  So I've tried my best today and I am happy to say I am half way done with my steps!  One step at a time, right?


  1. I think blogland at my comment :)

    I am chained to a desk most of the day too. I am trying to make it a priority to take a walk around the building after I eat lunch.
