GutCheckCast Ep 15 - the DIY episode

First, the numbers -
Doug's at 228.8, a loss of OVER TWO POUNDS! Yee-haw!
Zach's at 236.6 - a drop of one pound.
Pushups continue.

Usually, the pre-show chat is... truncated. Not this week. There's just too much awesomeness there.

The Treadmill Desk

Dumb Little Man has an article on 7 tips to develop the habit of daily exercise. If you're listening to us while you exercise, you're already doing... potentially five of these?

Shovelglove is a fantastic idea. And the description of how the idea was developed is classic! Plus, bonus man points (or woman points) for regular sledgehammer use.

And The Change Blog had a very good article on working out alone, and what you really need look for in a home gym setup.

And that's it. Now get out there and check your gut!

The treadmill desk is encouraging. I don't have an mp3 player any more so I've been avoiding my treadmill. Today, however, I decided to try reading a book while on the treadmill. I couldn't walk very fast, but I think it was worthwhile. If I can keep this up, I will kill two birds with one stone because I have a massive stack of library books to get through!

I read about the Shovelglove guy a few years' ago. The whole idea is to exercise by mimicking the movements you would use in real tasks. If you have a house, you will eventually have to shovel something, so why not practice the movement? That's the theory, anyway.
