I just had a great time working in my yard. Mowing the lawns, sweeping, digging up a plant to big for the space and maybe killing it but the roots are intact so maybe. I just love to spend the time in my yard.

The posts are on either side of an apricot tree I planted in January.
Maybe next year I will be making apricot jam.

    Good for you. I like to spend time in my yard but I don't like working in it. My husband just cut the grass and I raked it. Good luck with your apricot tree.

    Homemade apricot jam sounds scrumptious. I've got a feeling you've got a greener thumb than I do. I have an orange tree in my yard and all it produces is hard green balls! Any advice? You are doing simply fantastic with your walking. No kidding, you should give yourself a lot of credit. I wish I was walking as much as you are. Keep up the good work.

6000+ aerobic

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

I did 6270 at aerobic pace in 60 minutes. Then I walked another 2000 at a slower pace with my sponsor. Then I took off my pedometer and just did housework. I plan on taking another walk but I think I am going to only use the Pedometer when I am out and about and actually waking.
I want to find the entrance to the walk from about Vernon and Folsom to Sierra College Blvd. I am going to start working on getting more interesting walks. I am also going to walk around Maidu park..
Sorry I was so discouraged but I just have to give my body time to heal between walks. And I may have to take it slower.
Thank you for the aupport.

    I agree a change in your route might just be what you need .

    I saw your comment on the poll about how many diets you've been one. When it jived with mine I had to check out your sparkpage. I admire your determination!!! I also saw that you are on Catholic Critters as i am. Changing up the walking routine is a great idea! We have had so much heat and humidity that our heat index has been over 100 for a couple of weeks. So i bought a Leslie Sansone walking tape to do in the house. I like it and it gets your heartrate going pretty easily, but that always kind of scares me, so I rest a couple times during the tape. I have A-fib and don't want to push it. I want to wish you the best of everything with your journey to your goal. You are doing great in my book. You go girl...Carolyn

Walked a little more

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

I have decided that if I am so uncomfortable with walking 10,000 steps I should do enough to do 5,000 at an aerobic pace and keep going for as long as I am feeling fine. When I have a bad night or feel stressed sometimes the walking makes me feel better and sometimes it makes me feel worse.
I am going to work my way up to more steps at an aerobic pace and not worry about total steps. Maybe if I am so tired I need to stop and walk again later. Maybe I need to bring water with me.
I will pay with it.

    You have worked out this plan that will work for you. Congrats! We all need to do what we can do that works into our lifestyle. Have you looked into chair exercise DVDs? They are simply wonderful!

    I think that is a good idea. Just keep walking. You'll get stronger. Maybe just do your 5000 steps at aerobic pace and then just stroll for your cool down. 5000 steps is about 2 miles, isn't it? It's understandable that you would get tired after that distance. I think you are doing great!

    Listen to you body. It will tell you what you need to do. When I first started walking I could barely make it one mile. I took it slow, and didn't push myself past what I could handle. Now two months later I am walking faster and put on over 3.5 miles last Sunday morning. I still walk at a turtles pace, but I am still doing it.

You can to.

    I think maybe you have been overdoing it. Perhaps a smaller number of steps, or miles..... and you will feel better.

see you soon. I hope.

August Days

Sunday, August 08, 2010

So I really cut down on my walking this last week. Just had to get some tasks done around the house and it was warmer. I also do not have as many people to meet and walk. So I will walk by myself in my neighborhood and get my time in.
LOoking to get into the 170's this week.

    today is the perfect day for a nice walk. It is only 88! I think we have been pretty lucky this summer. It could be hotter. Before we know it fall will be here and the weather will be perfect! emoticon

I really went for a walk

Monday, August 02, 2010

I am so excited I actually got to 180 today in the morning on Monday.
I am afraid to change my ticker because I really cannot be sure I won't be up again tomorrow but I have hope. I just contacted the woman who turned me on to Spark and thanked her again.

    I know what you mean about the ticker! But it's like the scale, just a number.
