Today I signed up for the YWCA Women's Triathlon. That's right I'm going to swim, bike and run. On the same day.
I've been participating in a fitness competition at my gym this month. So far despite not eating cookies and eating more vegetables for the last couple weeks I haven't lost an ounce. Part of my goal of doing the fitness competition was to get in shape for the tri cause I run faster when I weigh less.
Since I've been thinking of ways to eat more broccoli and burn more calories I've been thinking about treadmill desks. An article in the Jan/Feb 2011 SCBWI bulletin got me thinking about treadmill desks.
I don't have room for a treadmill desk in my house so I've been researching other options.
Here's what I've found.
A bicycle computer desk using a bike, an indoor trainer and an ironing board. Check it out here.
One of my coworkers invented her own version using her little stair stepper and propping a table up on two chairs with her computer on top of it.
A recent study came out showing that putting a small pedal machine under the desks of office worker helped them burn 500 extra calories a day.
Although it might not burn as many calories as a treadmill, bike or stepper through the day I've decided to sit on a stability ball while I work and take walking breaks.
