Fitbit + Work = BOO

Monday, August 19, 2013

I have my fitbit with me today at work and I have realized that I am basically stationary for the entire day. The only time that I get up from my desk is to get water from the water cooler in our kitchen. My fitbit is telling me to get up and get to walking, but I can't.

My office is very small and everything that we do is seen. My supervisors do not like anyone being away from their desk. If I got up and did laps around my office or stood in place and stepped, I'd hear about it.

So I'm planning on going for a long walk when I get out of work today. If the weather doesn't cooperate then I'll be headed to my basement to walk up and down the stairs and hit the elliptical.

How do you deal with the fitbit and having to stay stationary at work?

    I don't have a fitbit but really would like one. I no longer work but I do sympathize. I remember those days when you could barely get out of your office to do anything. Maybe walks at lunch....

    I'm curious... I don't have a fitbit, would it work if you did marches under your desk?

Good luck!

    I take the long way to the bathroom, the stairs as much as I can and park far from the building. Most of the time when I get home from work I have walked over 5K steps so after I get my exercise in I end up with 10K! It's not as hard as you think!!

You will get creative. Just don't get discouraged!

    I work out on my hour long lunch break. I like to do it during lunch because exercise feels like work to me, and since I'm already at work, I like to do it during the "work" period of my day. By law youre supposed to get two 15 minute breaks per day. You can take those to take a walk around your offices.
