This is going to be a pretty short blog - I am really busy with law school right now - but I had to share this! My husband and I built a little desk to go over our treadmill, and now I can work standing or walking (slowly). This is AMAZING for me, because as a law student, I spend many many hours on my duff studying. Then I go to class and sit on my rump. Then at night after I get my baby to sleep, I sit on the couch and study some more. And I don't have a ton of time to work out, because I want to spend all my free time with my baby. So, this seems like a great solution! Obviously walking at 1.5 miles an hour is no substitute for good ol' heart pounding cardio, but it's a lot better than sitting all day long. The best part - it only cost $14! Here's a pic of it (I'm walking as I write this!).
Sorry the picture is sideways - for some reason I can't get it straightened. You get the point :)
I thought it would be hard to get used to typing and reading while walking, but its not. As long as I keep the speed around 1.5 mph, its easy. I can't go much faster than that though, or I cant concentrate. This is a pretty awesome setup!
Everything else is going well. School is so busy, and my son is keeping me busy too - he's crawling and almost ready to walk! I just love him more every day :) I'm so excited that Fall is here - I hate Southern summers!!
