Week 1: 35 Miles Walked While Working and I'm Feeling Great!

Today concludes my first full week (7 days) of using my treadmill workstation for work and for all of my computer entertainment. As I type now, I continue to walk 2.0 MPH and have just passed the 35 mile mark for the week! I am already seeing some positive changes in just 7 days.

1) My craving for sweets has pretty much disappeared.

2) I have shed a full 2 lbs in just 7 days.

3) The amount of food I am eating at breakfast, lunch, and dinner is less than normal. For some… Continue

Finally, "Exercise" I Can Stand

As I climb into my late-ish 30's, I've (begrudgingly) become more conscious of my body's need for proper nutrition and exercise. I've never been athletic. I've never liked exercise. I was fortunate all throughout my 20's in that I could eat whatever I liked (with some moderation) and not gain a ton of weight. Today, I realize those days are far behind me now. My career requires 7 to 9 hours per day (M-F) in front of the computer. My hobby requires about 10-15 hours per week on my tail in front… Continue

Walking Desks height adjustments?

Dear Colleagues,

I will be preparing to move my entire Dept to another location in several weeks. I almost went through with getting a "walking desk" the last time we moved, but I wasn't able to get my research done on time. I am hoping to remedy that this time and get a walkstation for my new location.

How many users out there have had any success in getting the company to pay for the desk?

How many users out there have their desks adjacent to other workers in… Continue

Patrick - I don't know if I can interface mine with the PC and to be honest, it never really occurred to me to do that. Lemme know if it works.

Lost 30 lbs!

So far going great. I can't say that it is all attributed to the Treadmill Desk setup - but I'm sure a large portion. David (my husband) was diagnosed w/ Oral Cancer 12/08 - and things have been pretty rough since then. So a combo of response to the stress and eating less with the TreadDesk setup. 30 lbs down, and just 15 more to go to reach goal.

On my way!

I'm walking at my "desk" for the first time. My setup is going to be refined later, but this'll work for now. My monitor is attached to the back of my husband's desk on a swing arm that places it just over the treadmill controls. The keyboard is on the treadmill's book holder, and my trackball is attached to the treadmill bar (it's sitting on the plastic stand that used to be on the back of the monitor, and the stand is tie-wrapped to the bar). This'll change in the first half of June when the… Continue
