I’m all about multi-tasking, well really, I have no choice. I have to multi-task or I would never get anything done! I review for two other blogs (Peekaboo Picks and NewBaby.com) and have three of my own blogs along with a boutique (The Apple of My Eye) and three girls under the age of 6, so I’m quite busy all of the time!
The SurfShelf has come to the multi-tasking mommies rescue! Hey moms: No more excuses for that fat, flab and fatigue! Now you can surf the web, catch up on your favorite blogs, tweet on Twitter or watch TV all while walking on the treadmill or riding a stationary bike.
I think this is a wonderful product because for one thing, I’m always on the computer and NEED to exercise more and for another, I have gotten rid of a lot of magazine subscriptions to better the environment, so now I have a way to read while working out. Now, I have no excuse to not work out!
I had my husband put the shelf together when it arrived and he said it was super easy to assemble. Attaching the shelf to the exercise bike was also easy which is great because I’m using it at a gym outside my home, so I have to re-attach it every time I go to the gym. This might sound like a lot of work, but it is so worth it to get some uninterrupted computer time!
SurfShelf recently dropped their price point due to the economic stress everyone is feeling so that more people will be able to afford it. They are now selling for $39.95!
SurfShelf would like to give one lucky Giftfully Simple reader the opportunity to win a SurfShelf for themselves!
To win you must tell me what your #1 excuse is for not working out. If you never make up excuses, you ROCK, so tell me what you do to stay motivated!

To stay motivated to work out I:
– sign up for group classes (scheduled workout means you have to go!)
– read about health and mood benefits of exercise
– mix it up by doing some exercise at the gym and some outside to keep it interesting and FUN
– Join a walking group, bike club, swim team, etc. to workout while having fun.
– count the number of hours I worked today at my desk and decide this needs to be counteracted!
My best excuses for NOT working out include:
– bad weather
– favorite workout cloths in the wash
– need to cook dinner for everyone
– too full or sleepy
– too much work to do
I always say I have no time since I have a newborn. Honestly, I do have some time when he naps…I just chose to use it to be on the computer instead =P
My excuse is no time. I have been trying to start walking.
I'd rather take a nap?? I'll start tomorrow!
I'm just too tired! Can't interrupt Young & The Restless!
Same excuse as always…no time with raising 2 small children…I think I need a workout buddy to motivate me!
I get bad back pain. 🙁 I wish I could find a way aorund it but i’ve found I just need to work out through the pain or I’m huge. firstname.lastname@example.org
I have plenty of excuses but one that I always say after a long day is… I am just to tired.

No excuses here. I walk daily and I teach a gymnastics clinic one a week. I am an ER Nurse, and always on the move. madly59

My excuse is there is not enough time in the day between nursing the baby, changing two in diapers and helping my oldest with homework. I am just so exhausted I can not bear to work out daily because well – it will exhaust me more! That’s my excuse. 🙂
OK, I’ll start! The excuse I use is that I have no time. But we all know that’s it’s that we(I) don’t make the time! I love that this can be attached to the treadmill. I always feel like I’m wasting time when I’m on there. I would love to be able to surf and exercise!!
