Thanks for the encouragement - today is day 8 of walking at least 30 minutes a day. I have challenged my self to continue throughout August everyday. I'll be out of town in Sept so I'll have to modify the challenge for that month.

Good for you! It's a great feeling to accomplish something that it took everything you had to even start. emoticon

Very little sleep last night so I was dragging today. Of course it's a busy, get out the door early, kind of day. So about 3 PM, it's time to get on the treadmill. A nap was calling me but I laced up my shoes and got on to do 30 minutes at whatever pace I could muster. Surprise, surprise, the upbeat music on my ipod got me moving along at a pretty good pace (for me!) and I ended up getting in 1.75 miles in 32 minutes. Yes, I went the extra 2 minutes to finish a lap. Note to self - even when you're tired go ahead and give it a try. You may have more in you than you thought. emoticon
