Wendy Williams + Lincee = Winning Combination

When folks from The Wendy Williams Show reach out to see if you will feature a Q&A session called “Ask Wendy with Jillian Michaels,” you say yes. Then after you watch the video, you blush because Wendy gives you a personal shout-out along with her signature, “How are you doing?” at the beginning of the clip.

Then you decide to write for the rest of your life while standing up because sitting down is apparently the WORST according to Jillian. I think it’s important to listen to a woman who has abs like that, don’t you?

Team Wendy and I would love to hear your thoughts on the topics discussed in the embedded video below. Especially the part about standing up at work. Does anyone reading do that? Or know someone who does? Is it hard? I also need to hear from those of you who love your spin class, because I just don’t get it.

Be heard in the comments section!

PS: I need Wendy’s microphone.

Am I the first? Wow! We have stand up desks at work that are optional. There are several in my group that have them. They can be fitted to a regular desk or cubicle. You can stand up or choose to sit. I am considering one.

Wow! Yes, Jillian has my respect as an authority on all things fitness! I’d try a spin class if the other participants were 20+ years older than me. That is the only way I could keep up, and maybe not even then! I prefer to do all humiliating athletic activity in the comfort of my own home! (not that I’ve even done that in recent years)

Spinning – I just don’t get it. Those people never look happy when I walk by their classes! UGH Now ZUMBA, that’s a different story! I’ve been doing it for about 3-4 years, because it’s so much fun! You’re dancing to fun music and laughing and having a blast with other people who are as uncoordinated as you! It’s the only exercise I’ve ever done that people get addicted to. And over 14 million people worldwide agree with me. Woo Hoo! The classes I attend have all ages, shapes and sizes, and we’ve all become friends while doing it. If… Read more »

By “you” I mean all of us! Not you specifically… Ugh. I can’t write…

Oh good grief – I mean we’re all uncoordinated…
Someone shoot me – I need to proof read before I hit “submit.”

I have a few co-workers with stand-up desks and I am considering one. I get up and walk around a lot, but anything that will help. My coworkers love them!

I hate spin. Loud annoying music + shouting? Yuck. I like yoga and spacing out on cardio equipment.

Wendy’s dress is great – I love it! I love Jillian too, but that leopard print kept stealing my attention!

I use a standing desk at work and I love it. It’s one where I can lift it to stand or pop it back down when I want to sit. Having the option is great. I also LOVE spin! I hated it with a passion the first couple of times I went, but I continued to go and love it. Having a great instructor is key. I also like that no one can really see me in the dark room so my workout is my own. I usually curse the workout halfway through and then at the end I’m so… Read more »

WOW! A personal shout-out from Wendy herself?? How fun is that? I love her show. Very entertaining. I read an article recently (can’t remember the source) that said the most recent studies show it is NOT worse to sit. I’m going with that. 😉

I’m a little late in commenting, but I switched from sitting to standing a few months ago. I love it, and wish I had done it years ago. I have been trying to get healthy and lose weight, but my weight had become stuck when I was still sitting. Shortly after I switched to standing, my weight continued dropping. My biggest concern was I have back problems, but for the most part my back feels better than it has in years. The only exception to that is if I work a lot of OT, and then I find standing for… Read more »

I too am late commenting. When my company moved offices 2 yrs ago everyone got standing desks. You can change the height to sit or stand. I used to do both, but standing for long periods of time hurt my lower back and feet. An anti-fatigue mat is super helpful, but on the recommendation of my chiropractor, I got a “standing chair” (Focal Upright makes the one I use) to go with the desk. I haven’t sat since July. I’m a few years ahead of you Lincee – not sitting has been UNBELIEVABLY awesome for everything that starts to ache… Read more »

Hey Lincee! This is a great discussion. I have a standing desk at work and I stand up for at least 4 hours each day and sometimes more. I generally stand up in the morning and then I sit down to eat lunch at my desk and usually forget to stand up again (or I’m too lazy), but hey, at least I’ve spent half the day not sitting! My coworker makes me look bad because she stands up all day but even if I wasn’t lazy or forgetful, I wouldn’t be able to do it all day because my back… Read more »

I have had a sit/stand desk at work for at least 3 years now. I do not stand as often as I could or should anymore, but at least I have the option when I get tired of sitting!
