Last week marked Week 5 for me and my walking desk! On Thursday, I left to go to Long Beach, CA, for a quick little 5-day vay-cay to visit family. Here are the two concerns that came to mind upon taking off on the airplane: (1) Is being away from my walking desk for 5 days going to cause me to gain back the 4.8 lbs I've lost over the last 4 weeks, and (2) Will I miss my walking desk or will I secretly be happy to get a break? Today is Tuesday, I'm back from California, back on the desk, and I… Continue

I'm back! Probably won't remember me because I was a lurker and I was here last year. Dh deployed and took the laptop with him. Finally got another and have it all set up today (yahooo!) and here I am walking away instead of sitting like a toad. :)
I've been trying to lose weight for forever. UP, down UP donw, back UP again. I'm 5'8" and 230lbs, everyone says I 'carry it well' but for a girll, I feel less than pretty and would be pretty happy if I could get to 180. The winters are… Continue

Feel like I'm pushing myself just to make 3 miles today. But I guess that's to be expected after just sitting for 2 months.

If you ever forget the name of the site, just google for treadmill desk social network or treadmill desk community. We come up first in the search result both ways.

My treadmill is happily ensconced in my office, but setting up a desk to use it has been more difficult than hoped--despite some early planning prior to purchase of the treadmill.
I had hoped to use the Trek Desk, but it's release has been delayed and the final specs make it too tall for me to use comfortably with a laptop. I tried putting a board across my Nordic Track treadmill. It was easy to work--not terribly steady, of course--but the next morning, I awoke with wrist pain… Continue

It's been quite sometime since I've logged in here. I've just been behind on life in general.
Anyway, I want to say welcome to all the new folks. And thanks for all the great participation.
Please help spread the word about Office Walkers.

Interesting article in the WSJ about Safeway's vountary wellness program. Many participants end up paying lower health care premiums.
"Safeway's plan capitalizes on two key insights gained in 2005. The first is that 70% of all health-care costs are the direct result of behavior. The second insight,… Continue

Today marks the end of Week 3. That's right... three full weeks of walking while workin' and surfin'. I suspected that I might become bored with my treadmill desk by now because rarely do I ever stick to anything for more than sayyy, 4 days. However, I'm happy to report that because of all of the goodness I've experienced since becoming a dedicated walking career chick, I am completely addicted and cannot imagine sitting at my desk for 8+ hours each day.
Let me share with you the… Continue
