I know for me, it's been hard to get away from the computer. I have had office jobs my whole life - sticks you in a chair behind a desk for the bulk of the day. Between the time behind the desk and the commuting time (used to be 2 hours a day), my poor body was crying out for some much needed activity. Since I've been out of the mainstream workforce I've been able to add in some activity: work in the yard, organizing the house, helping in the greenhouse this summer (sweating like I was in the Philippines every day). But now that I'm starting my own businesses (coaching practice and jewelry shows), I spend more time behind the computer again.
A friend of mine on facebook inspired me with a solution! She had created a laptop desk of sorts for her treadmill! I loved it so much that I found some materials in the barn and created my own. Check it out!
This is a fantastic set-up! I walk about 1.8-2.2 mph and can still type or read or write notes...fabulous! It takes me longer than normal to get to a mile; however, movement is movement! Now I'm getting back in the groove of getting some more weight off! And this is the best form of multi-tasking EVER!
