Berget commented on Kelly's blog post Working Standing Up
"I started at 30 mins a day, and gradually increased to 2-4 hours a day. There's always a lot of sitting involved in a workday: meetings, lunch breaks etc, so effectively up to 4 hours a day. Protip: Use running shoes, they're padded, make…"

The Anti New Year Resolution

Have you made any resolutions for the new year?I do not typically make resolutions and this year is no different (really).  I started office walking in mid-November, so no need for an exercise resolution right now.  I'm getting more exercise than I have in years. However, over Christmas break I had a wild hair and read "…See More

Kelly commented on Kelly's blog post My first day as an "office walker"
"Thanks Jason!  I'm in my fourth week and have lost 5 pounds (also without changing my diet).  I'm hoping to keep up the momentum.  I really pushed hard the first couple weeks and wore myself out, but have now adapted to it…"

When life gets in the way

Last week was my first week with my new treadmill desk.  I walked a total of 31 miles, averaging about 6 per day.  The first couple of days were rough, but by Friday I was feeling great!  I even met a few people through the Office Walkers sites and DailyMile.com, which has been a lot of fun.  Sunday night I couldn't wait to get back on my treadmill desk Monday morning.  One of the great things about working from home is I can set up this unique desk and nobody even has to know about it…See More

Kelly replied to Robb Shecter's discussion Any web designers or app developers want to collaborate?
"DailyMile.com is nice, but it seems more targeted for athletes - runners, cyclists.  The data on the spreadsheet above is nice.  It includes what DailyMile.com tracks, but also includes the average speed and average calories. …"

About Me:
I've been working from home for about five years. As my hours have increased, so has my weight. I have gained 10 pounds in the last two years (and never lost the last 10 after my third child was born). I have been dreaming about setting up a treadmill workstation in my office and am looking for tips and advice on how to do it right.

My first day as an "office walker"

I was so excited to start working at my new treadmill desk station this morning!  I started out with a challenge for myself - I wanted to walk 8 miles the first day.  

 

I began the day by setting the speed at 2 miles per hour while I read through some emails (no typing necessary during this time).  I quickly realized I was going to wear myself out at that speed, so I slowed down and tried a variety of speeds.  I found that 1.4 MPH was about the best, even though not as fast as…

Tomorrow it begins...



For weeks now I have been scouring the internet, reviewing every picture I can find of treadmill desks, looking for inspiration for my own home office set up.  I researched treadmills and found a local store (in Sioux Falls,…
