Me too, unless I need to get up for copies or something. I try to get up for breaks though!

I suppose we could call the handset a handle. I actually have been trying to stand up when I answer the phone. The cord is short, so I can't go far. The fitbit helps with making goals, so I don't have to make up my steps in the evening. Though, my dogs like the long walk.

I read through some of the other posts, and some of them made me reminisce about those big offices where you could walk to your coworker's door. It seems like there are quite a few fun and creative people on this team.

Does your phone has a handle on it?:).
yeah, as I said it really hard to give advice when you're not familiar with the terrain:)
Maybe set up a goal for yourself, like find new way to be active every Tuesday.
I believe in your imagination!

I am not provided a laptop, and my phone is attached to the wall. I'm in a very old fashioned office. Though, I did get rid of the typewriter about two years ago. emoticon

I do get up and walk up and down the office, and I will also walk around the building from time to time, to make sure everything looks okay on the outside (I'm also the property manager). I am the one who puts away the supplies, and my printer is in the other room, so I get steps that way. But, by way of introduction, sitting on my butt a lot seemed accurate. It seems to be the bane of office workers.

You are right, though! They should put "ass growing guaranteed" in the job description!

Hello!
Yeah, they should put that on the job description - "ass growing guaranteed":)
Since you're alone you can really use that.
Bring some easy equipment, maybe sit on the balance ball.
You can put your laptop somewhere high to work standing up.
Talking on the phone - you can walk around in the office.
Maybe you need more comfortable chair, or even switch it throughout the day.
There must be plenty of tasks you do around the office, can you decrease efficiency, but increase amount of walking by not multitasking.

Hi everyone,

I was looking for an active group to help me, people who can relate to how difficult it can be to lose weight while working as a desk jockey. I stumbled across this group.

I work in an office, and many times I am by myself through the day. I have people come in here and there, and some days my coworkers have some office time, but most of the time I am by myself. Since I am the office manager, I try not to keep a lot of food around, but I still struggle. Like right now, there is a bag of candy in our meeting room, and I am craving chocolate.

I know I don't get a lot of exercise. My Fitbit is telling me that I definitely need to take the dogs for a long walk today. It's hard to be motivated when I get home, because apparently, sitting on my butt all day makes me tired.

Anyway, thanks to whoever created this group, and I look forward to interacting with all of you.
