Book Blog Walkers Check-in 34

August 23, 2014 Blog Fun 4


Book Blog Walkers is a challenge developed by Felicia @ Geeky Bloggers Book Blog – for details go check out her info page. I hope you’ll join us, it’s a lot of fun and a great way to motivate each other to get and stay moving!

Oops! I almost forgot to check-in! This past week was pretty good, I had a lot of ups and downs. I find that I either have a good day, with lots of walking or a bad day with lots of time spent at the desk. So I’m even more convinced that I need a treadmill desk. I just need a job before I can rationalize spending savings on a treadmill. But I have one all picked out and DIY plans all set for making it into a desk once I have a job and can feel better about dipping into my savings.

Check-in 34: 

Day 227 (Fri): 5,658 steps (2.6 miles)

Day 228 (Sat): 2,652 steps (1.2 miles)

Day 229 (Sun): 1,899 steps (0.9 miles) REST DAY

Day 230 (Mon): 4,881 steps (2.3 miles)

Day 231 (Tues): 5,387 steps (2.5 miles)

Day 232 (Wed): 2,411 steps (1.1 miles)

Day 233 (Thurs): 8,648 steps (4.0 miles) CLEANING DAY!

Good luck to everyone & here’s to moving every day!

    I’ve never tried a treadmill desk, but they sound great. I do have a treadmill. I knew I would never go to the gym, so I broke down and bought the treadmill. I feel I’ve got my money’s worth the the year+ that we’ve had it. My trick is that I have shows I’m only allowed to watch on while I’m on the treadmill. My current show is Hemlock Grove, not allowed to watch while sitting on my ass. :-)

      The shows thing wouldn’t work for me because I watch maybe an hour of tv a day – and that’s with the BF. I used to watch way more, but the blog is my addiction. Reinforcing how good a treadmill desk would be for me. If I had to be on the treadmill to blog, I’d walk tons. Hemlock Grove is a show I’ve been curious about though… :)

    I would love a treadmill too but we don’t have the money or the space. And those treadmill tables look great. Maybe someday we can both have one. You had a great week. You do so good even on your rest day. Great job and have a great week!!

      Thanks Kathy! yes, the money and the space are both big issues – I think I’ve figured out how to make the space and how to make it a DIY project so that I only need to spend like $30 + a treadmill. Fingers crossed!
