My New Toy!

I've been using my new toy-- a treadmill desk-- every day since I got it a few weeks ago. I love it! I go only 1-1.5 miles an hour on it, but at that speed I barely know I'm exercising (well, I barely am exercising) and can surf the Net almost guilt-free. I was inspired by author Art Slade, who made his own treadmill desk a few years ago, and a study that sitting all day is really bad for your health. The best thing about the treadmill desk is that I can fit a large pizza on it. Kidding.

I love my new toy! I've been on it every day since I got it a few weeks ago. I walk one to three miles a day on it, at a super slow rate of one to one and a half miles per hour. That rate allows me to play around on the Net and talk on the phone easily and nearly guilt-free. And I don't even break a sweat (yuck). I haven't tried actually writing novels while on it, but I will soon. My treadmill desk takes up about the same amount of space as a small couch. I was inspired by author Arthur Slade, who made his own treadmill desk a few years ago and does write novels on it. I was also inpired by studies showing that sitting on your tush all day, even if you exercise an hour of that day, is really bad for the ole health. The best thing about my treadmill desk: It easily holds an extra-large pepperoni pizza. Kidding. It can't fit more than a large size.
