Happy Wednesday ya’ll! I am writing this from and about my favorite new addition to my workspace, my new treadmill desk! That’s right, it’s a treadmill with a desk attached and it’s the coolest thing I’ve ever bought.
As you know, last year, I fell off the weight-loss wagon (OK, let’s be honest, I didn’t just fall off, I jumped off into a pit of unhealthy habits and did the backstroke in them) and my back started to go out worse than ever and it started to get bad again this year so I thought I had to do something about it. But, things are really starting to get busy here at Scrapbook Rehab and in my life with the wedding being a year away so I needed something that could multitask. I did some research and found this amazing machine. I ordered it after Craig was convinced it would not just become an expensive coat rack and here it is.
I made a deal with myself that if I am ever on my computer, I am on the treadmill. So, I go in bouts of 10-15 minutes most of the time but the first day, I’m pretty sure that I walked for about 2 hours combined (scary how much time I spend on my computer) and I was a little worried that I would wake up the next day and my back would be worse than it was. IT WASN’T! My back is feeling better each day and I am so happy I bought this machine.
I am not endorsing this machine saying it is everyone’s solution, but for me, it is already working wonders. And, I have to stand up straight or I’ll fall off or won’t be able to type so it’s helping with my posture too! So fun and I love it. I am all about things that are multifunctional and fun and this fits the bill. It is kind of an eyesore though, but hopefully I’ll get the Scrapbook Rehab building soon and move it out of my living room.
After last year’s health/weight-loss/happiness debacle, I am determined to find things that work for me and I am really hopeful that this is one of the them. So far, so good.
What are you changing this year in your life? Let me know.
Have a great day!
