I definitely agree with cocobean that I am much more alert when standing. I am a bio major at Uconn. I do all my reading/studying pacing back and forth or standing(yup, I'm that guy). My hips and back feel exponentially better on a day to day... (more)

It's lovely I'm slowly but surely losing weight by having adjusted my diet (yay dropped 2 dress sizes) but I just can't get myself to get moving. It's so lame! I bought myself the Wii Fit where you don't need to hold on to the remotes (I used the... (more)

Lately I am comming across more and more news about how bad it is sitting all day long. It seems that you cannot even excercise away the damage, not even with a daily morning run. Many of the articles quote you must walk more, however I wonder... (more)

For the past 5 months I've been an intern on a sustainable farm. My job allowed me to be extremely active and get tons of fresh air and sunlight. Now my internship is over, and I will be entering the conventional world filled with computer... (more)

I walk and walk up stairs whenever I can. I also try and take a walk during my lunch breaks, which is good to clear the head and sort out the eyes from staring at a computer screen all day. Also sometimes I have an hour conference call with the... (more)

I am starting the fourth month of my eating paleo, or to be more specific, for now I settled with the "archevore diet" of Dr. Kurt Harris (link). I am amazed how my body composition changed in those few weeks, I lost about 25 pounds, but not only... (more)

I have a really awesome pedometer that I bought from my gym for a gym challenge. If anyone cares I will find it and put in the details. It was around $25. I found that I don't move AT ALL. My job is sedentary. On a non-exercise day I can... (more)
