Walk While You Work At Home

from Sharon Odom-Fling 

Hello from my treadmill desk! Yes, I am walking at the rate of 1.8 mph on my Smooth Fitness treadmill as I’m typing this. People sometimes ask me if it’s hard to type and walk at the same time and the answer to that is “no”. And even if it was, I’d do what my son tells his sisters all the time – “Build a bridge and get over it.” Because having a treadmill desk has been life changing for me.

If you’re an internet based mom who’s at the computer all day, wants to lose weight or just stay healthy, and have trouble fitting in the exercise, you may want to do what I did — put together your own treadmill desk.

That’s what I did a little over a year ago, and it was the best $2,500 I ever spent. You may not have to spend that much — if you already have a laptop all you’ll need is the treadmill. Maybe you already have the treadmill, sitting in a corner, gathering dust. Whatever it costs, please think about investing that amount in yourself.

I’m embarassed to admit what I weighed when I got my treadmill desk, maybe I’ll ‘fess up later. But I will tell you that I’ve lost 41 pounds during that time and the biggest factor in that weight loss has been the treadmill desk. Initially I thought of it as an experiment, and almost didn’t get the heavy duty treadmill because I wasn’t sure if I would like it. But I’m glad I didn’t get a cheapie treadmill because it would have died by now for sure.

If you’re interested in putting together your own, you can find out how I did it and even see pictures on my blog www.SharonSays.com, and you should also check out Jay Buster’s website, http://www.treadmill-desk.com

Feel free to ask me any questions, and if you get a treadmill desk, be sure to let us know!
