Healthy Way To Multi-Task

 While reading Marnie Matarese's post titled "Yes I am Standing At My Desk"  I got an Ah Ha moment. Marnie had a treadmill desk...what a great idea!

 I dialed Marnie's number and left a message thanking her for the post. Within the hour my call was returned.   I placed my iPad on a lucite book holder and was able to chat the entire time while walking on the treadmill.  

 

Treadmill with iPad

When we finished our conversation, I turned the iPad on and googled  treadmill desks.

Wait...I don't need a desk...just the iPad and the treadmill.

Thanks Marnie for the inspiration.

Now this is a

Healthy Way To Multi-Task.

Margaret, what a fantastic idea!  I have been trying to figure out how to work my laptop from my exercise bike.  I guess the solution would be to use a more portable IPad instead.  Thank you for thhe great idea!

Lisa,

It was Marnie that gave me the idea...Yes, I am Standing at My Desk!

Wow, Margaret! I did read Marnie's post, but paid no attention to the "standing at my desk" part. I like sitting on a fitness ball by my desk. If I start falling off - time to take a break!

Margaret: I love the way you just pick up the phone and call. And thank you again for your last one. Now, it's 8:20PM here, which means its 2:20AM where you are. Don't think I will reciprocate right now :-)

Sounds like a plan...exercise brain and leg "muscles" at the same time !

Good Morning, Margaret.  Happy Late Birthday!  I just read Brenda Mullen's post today, and wanted to come over Wish you the Best! You are an Inspiration for many of us here in the Rain.

Working the brain and legs is certainly multi-tasking.

And how many of us don't have a treadmill? I think we probably all do! Great idea Marnie and Margaret for re blogging so more of us could see her idea!

I have looked this up before, too. The iPad makes it much more viable than a clunky laptop.

Did the lucite book holder come with your treadmill or did you order it separately?

The only problem with this concept is that Riley Rover gets left out of the mix.

Cheryl, The book holder came separately but I don't remember from where.

You can still go take a walk with Riley.

Thanks for sharing. I agree with everyone else. Now I just got to take a few days to move all of the "stuff" off of my treadmill.

Norma,  So many people are using their treadmills for storage. Great idea to clean it off.
