Blognasium

Yes, as we speak, I'm blogging from my treadmill. Here's what a projector, a piece of plywood, and a wireless keyboard/mouse will do for you!





I'm telling you, somebody who wanted to make a quillion dollars should set this up for people. I've now checked my email, surfed a couple of blogs, and written this little beauty, and hardly even known I've been walking for 28 minutes.

It's not perfect, but it's a fantastic time saver and hey, nobody had to go into therapy over what I looked like this morning. Especially me.

That's so cool! Now if you could figure out a way for it to make the kids stop bugging me while I was on the treadmill I'd totally go for it!

Coooollll.

That is the coolest thing I have ever seen. I am insanely jealous.

Yvonne said...

When you mentioned doing that a couple of days ago, I thought you were just kidding. I am so incredibly jealous. With a set-up like--wow!

Shultzybabe said...

What a brilliant idea!! If only I was that crafty...

Doran & Jody said...

Ah ha ha ha. That is total commitment. I know you do it just for us. What would we do if there was not a post for the day? Stay in bed? Thanks for the posts letting us know that we are not alone in our crazy thinking and doing. I guess I should tell some of the stories about us on our blog. Hey, good idea!

Melissa said...

You amaze me! Your committment to exercise is awesome! :) I tried to set the DVD player up on our elliptical trainer... doesn't work quite as well as the treadmill...

Caroline said...

I want one!

Kimberly said...

Brilliant! I want one! And not a futurey-distant some day kind of want. I wants one NOW!

Marilyn said...

wow-way cool. what a neat way to make something painful a lot less so!i am so jealous that you have a room big enough for a treadmill and a screen! i hope we get updates on your fitness progress!

Tonya said...

You are tricky!! That is awesome. I think you should be the one to make the quillion dollars.

I think I might be to clutzy for it though.

No Cool Story said...

Way cool.
Your commitment is unparalleled.
I take my big Mexi hat off to you!

I want to make a quillion dollars. Where do I get the training. Is the Brain availale?

Corrine said...

That is awesome! I need one of those, problem is I'd have to find the key for the treadmill first, and fight my kids over the tv, but I do have a laptop. When Eric and I were first married we went to the gym and they had exercise bikes with computers, I loved it! I should set up a bike here by my computer and do the same! You rock!

I have a friend who was doing stomach crunches when her infant son crawled over to her and wanted to nurse. She CONTINUED the crunches AS HE NURSED!!!
Yeah, I just think that we need to be careful about what exactly we do while exercising.
Blogging = good
Nursing = bad

Jenny said...

It looks stable even! I am so impressed you can blog and walk at the same time. 2x day exercise is not as impossilbe as it sounds with that set up!

momof3crazykids said...

That is very clever. You should market that.

Meritt said...

Well, all I can say is Godblessya. I tried to do everything on the treadmill a few years ago just so I could stand to do it for 20 minutes... it didn't work. LOL.

I did the board and keyboard trying to do computer but the whole thing shook too much. LOL. I tried to read a book, nope. Listen to music? No. TV? Huh-uh. Movie! Ugh.

I hated everything so I just stopped using the treadmill. LOL.

(The 10 extra pounds on my backside can atest to that).
