Susan Southard walks 10 miles a week without taking her eyes off a computer screen.

Every day at 12 noon, Southard uses a treadmill desk for an hour at her office in El Dorado Hills. She adjusts the height of the desk, turns on the fan, and starts walking at two miles per hour.

“I’ve lost weight over the last couple of years, about 40 pounds,” says Southard. “That’s really without changing my eating habits.”
