I am convinced that my ass is getting flat from the seven hours a day I sit at my desk staring at the computer. It is pretty much straight, unrelieved sitting. I may get up to go to the bathroom or break room, but that’s about it. I usually eat lunch at my desk and don’t have meetings or people I have to wander off and go see in the office. So I sit.
I have a hard time with ergonomics/posture/carpal tunnel/tendonitis/pinched nerves/what have you. I am almost always uncomfortable shortly after sitting down. Part of the ass-flattening is I think after 5 years, I’ve pretty much smooshed out any padding that was in the seat. I broke down and ordered one of these today (free shipping with Amazon Prime trial!):
I’m hoping it will help me maintain better posture all around and stem the tide of ass compression. I mean, I’m not doing all this working out to have a misshapen ass. But I’m certainly sitting here for exponentially more hours than I am working out daily, so of course flat is winning.
My coworkers will probably mock me, but too bad. I’m tired of being in pain and uncomfortable. And also I’d like a shapely ass. None of my coworkers seems in any way concerned for the shape of their ass, if you know what I mean. They mocked my snuggie too, but I know they’re all secretly jealous as they sit in their offices shivering and covered in goose bumps.
