Stand Up

This Sparked Me!

I stand instead of sit when ever possible. I have to wait for the bus so I stand until the bus comes. I also have to sit in classes so I try and stand, or get up to get something as much as possible. Standing burns more calories than sitting emoticon

    I really like this particularly now as I was told after surgery last week Do not sit. walk as much as you feel like do not sit or stand too long. SO when I with my pedometer I am seeing how much activity i can get in by just moving my feet while standing. standing and walking are much better than sitting
