I am reposting this since it was eaten last week during Blogger Meltdown ’11. But it reappeared, so I added some stuff and voila! A newish blog post!
1. I heart this article posted over on Inperspire’s blog: It’s all about how sitting is bad for your health. So true! I want to post more on this later, but go HERE and read the article first. I guarantee you’ll be standing a lot more after you read it!
Sitting is what got me in trouble, weight-wise, and it caused my herniated disc to get pissed off and hurt me. Too much sitting. But, in a way, I guess sitting is what got me running since I opted to get in shape instead of getting surgery for the herniated disc. It’s a long story that I’ve told before, but the moral is: sit less, stand more.
Last week, because of the article I linked to above, I decided to stand more since I can’t work and run at the same time, but that would be awesome, wouldn’t it? I had about a million box layouts to proofread, so instead of hunching over them at my desk I put them on a tall counter outside my office and stood there marking them up with my trusty red pen. And nobody thought I was weird. Well, no more weird than they already think I am.
2. Don’t forget to enter my giveaway HERE for a pair of Merrell minimalist shoes thanks to OnlineShoes.com. It ends on Saturday. Guess what? They’re having another giveaway right now, too! Go HERE to enter to win a pair of KEEN trail shoes!

those are more like earbuns.
3. Okay, so I subscribe to three magazines: Better Homes and Gardens (because it costs practically nothing), Runner’s World and People StyleWatch. Oooo! I love looking at celebrities and clothes! Right now, they are post “Stars’ Sporty Spring Styles” HERE. I’m totally hooked! (Confession: I sometimes check out celebrities legs in photos to see if maybe they are runners. Sometimes you can really tell!)
“Star Workout Dates” has some good exercise action shots HERE. My fave is Fergie and Josh Duhamel workin’ on their cardio fitness, and Jim Toth and Reese ninja running.
