no more sitting at work

Standard

20110427-111416.jpg my boss/sassy rockstar and I rearrange our office today. there’s been a lot of news about standing desks and how they can revolutionize our work day. of course, Mashable covered this as well, which was one of the reasons we were inspired to make a change:

At least, that’s the gist of a few articles that have made the rounds recently. A particularly popular article in Men’s Health cited a study in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise that will make any desk jockey wince. Examining the lifestyles of more than 17,000 men and women over 13 years, the report found those who sit for most of the day were 54% more likely to die of heart attacks. According to Men’s Health, that statistic was true even if the people in the study were nonsmokers and regular exercisers.

Another report cited in a recent New York Times Magazine story tracked 123,000 Americans and found the death rate for those who spent six or more hours a day sitting was 20% higher than for men who sat for three hours or less. For women, the difference was 40%. No one’s really sure exactly why that’s the case. You certainly burn fewer calories sitting than you do standing and moving around, but weight gain isn’t necessarily the primary reason that sitting is so bad for you.

Luessenhop directed the 2010 Takers starring Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen and Matt Dillon.

engaged.

Patrick and I outside of the Portage theater, reveling in his name on the poster!

on April 10, 2011, Patrick Klepek proposed to me:

i must say, it was all i hoped and dreamed. it was just the right amount of geek romance. i am still speechless.

in love with the ring as well. no, he did NOT go to Jared. instead, he used a family diamond and hand selected the setting/design. a lot of thought went into this and i blush just thinking about it.

blissfully yours,
