We love our standup desks!  Ours are nothing fancy, we measured our ergonomically correct heights and then bought supplies at Ikea, but they work great for us and definitely help keep our fidgeting under control.

How a Fitbit May Make You a Bit Fit

How a Fitbit May Make You a Bit Fit | Indoor Rowing | Scoop.it
Millions now have fitness-tracking devices. But are they any use?

Via Peter Mellow
UCanRow2's insight:
 Yes, it's true that a Fitbit and its friends aren't likely to transform your weight loss.  Plus they're not great at tracking rowing workouts.  We still like them, though, because they nudge you to keep moving.  And it's that NEAT movement (Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) that just might make the difference when it comes to dropping pounds, especially if you're menopausal.
