It looks like the two of you could be buddies!

That's great. I have tried a pedometer, but it didn't work for me. Either it was too cheap and wasn't working right or I didn't wear it right. I have a "sitting" job so really have to work at moving around during the day.

For exercise today, I went to the gym and did 10 minutes of cardio on the eliptical to warm up and then did strength training, upper body, for 40 minutes then 5 minutes on the eliptical to cool down.

Very short walk with the dogs outside because it was SO cold (7 degrees - cold for here.)

Yes, I did 9000 steps and wall push ups

So, today I did the treadmill. 4 miles - most of it at an incline of 1 and speed of 5.0, with two (or maybe 3) very short walking breaks at 4.0. Then I took the dog for a half mile walk outside to cool down.

Did you exercise today?

You are right, thank you.

Do what you just did! I need someone to report to so I can keep myself accountable. I know its for me, but I also know me and I do better when I report to someone else. No competition, just reporting. I am 53 y/o, finally down into the merely overweight category and no longer obese (GO ME!) and struggle daily with calories and exercise and probably will for the rest of my life. I have never been a workout buddy before. I try for five days of exercise a week, two concentrating on strength and three cardio, with a one-mile walk outside on days I don't exercise. Wanna try something? You don't have to do what I do and I don't have to do what you do, but we can help motivate each other to keep moving....

It hard to stay focus when you do not have someone who working out with you. How do you find someone online?
