With each calorie busting bite you are one desk leg closer to joining the newest health rage, and your keyboard will be a slam dunk after ingesting your favorite delightful fried dough.
Wash down all of your worries regarding your new standing desk commitment, with the sugariest soda you can find… the remnants which can help you then navigate the ins and outs of the internet. Finally, hold your monitor up high after preparing for the next round of your stomach workout routine with cans of energy filled carbs. When you’re finished, simply unzip your pants and proudly stand tall until your timer goes off for your next snack break!
