I got two different reactions when I told people I had moved to a standing desk. The first was one of jealousy…the other extreme disbelief (and not in an encouraging way). I know, it’s a fairly new trend that is just in its baby phase, but when the fitness freak in me heard that it was an option at my workplace, I couldn’t help but jump at the chance. I had spent 5 years of my life sitting roughly 9 hours a day, and let me tell you, I was doing more squats than Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime to make sure my butt didn’t turn into cellulite city. It was getting out of control.
