We have all heard of the freshman 15 (15lbs everyone gains their first year in school and out of the house), but have you heard of the cubicle 50?
I hadn’t either until just recently. Most likely because I have started working in one within the past two month, I’m feeling sluggish and snooped around the “inter-webs” to find out why.

Lucky me, I made it through college without gaining the Freshman 15, so I am not about to stand (or sit in this case) for 50 lbs. Although that might just be the answer… stand!

Get your heart pumping, blood flowing and burn a few calories after lunch has digested. Say “No!” to the cubicle 50.
