    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.

    Great ID. Due to the noise, I can't put in a treadmill desk, but I've been using a stand up for a couple of years now and it's great. Even Dr. Levin grudgingly admitted that the stand-up is pretty good. Dr. Levin is the inventor of the treadmill desk. Good luck.

    Thanks for the comment, Shel_V2. Hope you get your stuff moved soon.

    Sadly, my soon-to-be-former employer wouldn't allow those after-market raisers they sell to lift the computers or the desks to a reasonable height, and never approved the purchase of new office furnishings designed for the purpose. But I am very much a fan of anything that divorces computer-work from sitting!

    An interim alternative to the treadmill desk is a stand-up desk. If you work in a cube, it is usually a very simple matter of getting facilities to just hang the desk parts higher. I have friends who are very much stuck at their desks all day who've worked this way for about 10 years. One of them promoted to an office and it was outfitted with the cube walls so he could keep his stand-up set-up.

    I have sometimes used a stand-up desk at home, and found it cured my lower-back pain. We moved and I installed it in the wrong spot, so now I'm just trying to get motivated to move all the things around so I can have it located where I'll actually use it.
