    How many of you guys have desk jobs?

    I kinda like that I am not wasting precious calories by having a more active job.. it also helps when I get off work, I just wanna go get rid of some energy at the gym.


    So who else sits at a desk 90% of their workday?

    Desk job here, but I would mind something manual labor on the weekends. I like being outside. I stare at Excel spreadsheet for 9 hrs a day.

    Ugh, 16 ounces. I have a 64 ounce cup, I go thru about 2 of those a day. I'm always running into the Finance Director in the bathroom, I think he thinks I have a prostate problem or something.

    I probably piss/refill my 16 oz cup like 6 or 7 times in a 10 hr shift, and I weigh about 150. Walk by my coworker's office on the way to the toilet and his door is always open (desk faces the door too), I'm sure he thinks the same thing!

    lol yeah..when I go home to my mother's house, I make sure i'm mowing the lawn or moving bags of mulch, etc. labor to make your house look nice > labor for someone else.

    how would it not effect calories?

    wouldn't doing physical labor absolutely burn more calories than sitting at a desk?

    I'm tempted to just piss on the carpet here in my cubicle. I spilled a protein shake in here under my desk about 6 months ago. They STILL ask what that big stain under my desk is. :naughty:
