Okay, so after a very healthy winter and spring '09, in which I lost 30 of the 50 pounds I need to lose, I had a not-so-healthy summer, and gained 10 back. Boo!
So now it's fall, and I'm trying something new. I picked up a $50 treadmill on Craigslist, put a plank of wood across the handlebars, and set my laptop on top. I'm posting this while I walk at a comfortable 1.7mph pace.
I spend all day, almost literally, at my computer at work, and then my laptop at home. Don't get me wrong, I get out and spend time with wonderful friends in non-computery ways too, but the bulk of my day is spent sitting. Since I can't do anything about that at work at the moment, and since I've had a really hard time sticking to any exercise regimen, I figure I'll try to convert my couch-sitting time to walking time. It's a little weird (and surprisingly loud...), but hey, I feel good to be trying something.
Has anyone else out there tried the treadmill desk idea? I'm currently just doing it while I browse and chat on the web, which is easy enough, but I'm wondering what it would be like for more serious work. It certainly feels a lot better than sitting all day!
