Hi Everyone! I am Brenda and have been working with a health advocate in walking. My goal for each day at this point is 4,000 steps with a weekly goal of 28,000. But I would like to do 10,000 at some point. But my health advocate just wants me to do 4,000 and then will get with me again to see how I do. I am looking forward to being a part of this team!

I just got a fitbit a few months back. I started SP earlier this month. I am averaging around 6,000 steps. I have only made 10,000 once since I got my fitbit. I would love to reach 10,000 every day. I hope this group will help me stay encouraged into doing that.

Hi,
I'm just getting started in tracking my steps - got a new pedometer and am still tweaking it, with intentions of tracking my steps daily and working up to 10K+ (so far, I haven't tracked a full day, because I was wearing it in a way that caused me to accidentally hit the reset button!)

I lost all this weight once before, but have gained it back over the last little while, particularly after an injury kept me housebound for a while. For now, I'm tracking to see where I'm really at - over time you lose track. (Turns out I'm exercising more than I thought, and eating less (Why the weight gain then?? Grrrr.))

I'm back at it now and am determined to be kind to myself - celebrating successes, and accepting that it's not about where I'm at, but where I'm headed. I know I'll look back at this time and feel thankful for the choice to take care of myself!

It's great to meet you all and I'm looking forward to sharing improved health with all of you!


Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. -Mahatma Gandhi

They're my rules. I make them up! -Me

I enjoy walking 10,000 steps a day because it certainly increases stamina, fitness, and I also find it my special time to reflect, pray, and organize my day. I am happy to have found a team that allows me to track and communicate my walking activities.

The Lord Jehovah is my strength and song"! Isaiah 12:2 emoticon

I absolutely love music. I am a singer and musician, the pianist, in a gospel blue grass band, The Kelso Heartbeats for Jesus. We minister in music and testimony to eight soon to be nine nursing/retirement homes in our local area. We also conduct one church service a month. We are currently looking for a building to start our own church.

I have always been involved with music. I play the piano, organ, string bass, and guitar and sing as well. I have been involved in Christian musicianship since the age of ten. The joy of music stirs my soul. I work out to Christian music....I have downloaded our blue grass songs to iTunes and love worshiping and singing as I get more fit.

I have journeyed with our Lord and Savior through a 100 weight loss trek, plus I will be celebrating 1,000 days of sobriety within a few days. The Serenity Prayer is a guidepost for me as well. One of my favorite blue grass gospel songs is, " I'm Using My Bible for a Road Map." I read the Word daily in English and in Spanish. I am bilingual and wish I could use Spanish more where I live. We travel to Akumal, Mexico each year. We love it there.

Please visit my SparkPage! I would love to hear from team members!

My name is Margie and I was so impressed with this team when I found it. I am 66 and have some knee and hip problems. However I enjoy walking as my exercise of choice. Getting some of this extra weight off is bound to help. Thank you for letting me tag along!

If hunger isn't the problem, then food isn't the answer.

Hello~I use a fitbit and have been trying to hit 10,000 steps a day. Right now I am working on doing some longer walks (1 to 2 miles) at a stretch, with the overall goal still being 10,000 a day

Thanks for your reply, RUNTIGGER. I am not familiar w the Fitness Tracker so that makes sense that it would be auto entry…I have been logging manually. ;)

Hi there Jace....I'm still new to a lot of this stuff...but I went and added myself to the Team Goals at the bottom of the Team page just to see how it works. It seems to collect it's data from my Fitness Tracker entries...so that one really takes care of itself. And for me....I joined the Monthly Personal Steps just to participate.

Hope this helps and that you're having a GREAT day! :)

Question for Leader…not sure where to ask so I thought I might try here.

The Thread for Monthly Personal Steps vs the Join Goal and Track at the bottom of the team page. Do most people choose one or the other for documentation or do you duplicate the effort and log all those numbers twice? Thanks, Jace

Hi, all !

My name is Sue and I just joined. I am 54 (as of yesterday, lol) and from New York and will be Mama of the Bride this coming Saturday!

Once all of the stress of that is over I plan to re-commit myself to a good exercise routine. I've had some chronic lower back pain all year that I have allowed to sideline me for way too long. I am going to have some physical therapy for it and then work on strengthening my core and my back.

I also have one adorable Grandson too! :) I've had some health issues as of late and I really need to get myself in gear and get this weight off. I love my FitBit and counting steps, so I thought this would be a perfect fit.

Thank you for the welcome goodie. emoticon

My name is Debbie. I work hard during the week but I am sitting while working. I have a Fitbit Zip that I started to use a few months ago to make sure I am getting my 10k in per day. I look forward to stepping with all of you.

Hi everyone, I'm Jacey! I forgot to introduce myself when I joined. I would love to log 10,000 a day w consistency. A lot of my steps are indoor walk around rooms and stairs...also step in place and sometimes a stepper if my knees are okay. I hope those type of steps are okay to count...I figure just moving more is an improvement even if not a real walk. This morning I forced myself to log 1000 on pedometer before I could have my coffee! emoticon

Directions from the leader are:

Just a few things to remember about this thread/challenge...

One of the most important things is to ONLY MAKE 1 POST! After you make your first post, you'll notice a small "edit" button at the bottom. You can go back each day and UPDATE your post with your daily totals and your own personal comments. HOWEVER, if you want to offer encouragement to other members please visit their personal pages and support them there.

Be sure to make your personal goal known, so you can be placed in the correct category at the end of the month.

I started doing 10000 steps back at the end of February and since I have entered a run club and will be doing a 5 Km on April 27. (another goal) Walking myself to a healthy lifestyle!

Hi everyone!! My name is Adrianne, and I just wanted to say hi and also say that I'm really excited to join this group! I did my first day of 10,000 steps, and I'm pretty proud of myself! I took my dog to the park, and we walked about 1 mile. I did Leslie Sansone's 1 mile "Walk Away the Pounds" video. I realized after all of that I was about 1,200 steps short of my goal, so I walked around my living room while I was watching a movie. I feel great, and I definitely want to keep this up. We can all do it!! emoticon

Hi Everyone,
I'm Vickii and glad to join in on this journey. I believe all this enthusiasm will give me the impetus - to increase my steps past the 10,000 per day. I have been getting some great workouts /w incline and increasing speed on the treadmill. but I look forward to walking outside again with the days getting longer and weather improving. I will commit to walking 7 days a week instead of my usual 5 emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi everyone! My name is Sarah and I just joined the group. My husband and I welcomed our first child (a boy!) in February 2013, and I want to get down to a healthier size before we try for another child... consistent exercise has been the last missing piece of my weight loss puzzle!

I recently ordered the Spark Activity Tracker, and I can't wait for it to come this week! My 30th birthday is this Sunday (April 6th!) and I have made a personal promise to use my pedometer to help me exercise every day of my 30th year! I even bought some fun neon workout socks and am eyeing a pair of crazy bright tie dye Asics. I might as well make my walks crazy, colorful and fun ;) See you around!

Hi! I am Christine and just found this team. I try to walk every day and for the most part get to my 10,000 steps. Always looking for new ways to add more steps and I am looking forward to the warmer weather when I can get out to walk at lunch time.

Hi all. I'm Dee {aka MistyPaws}. Thank you for the welcome. Staring with the steps, but know that it will take a little time to build up. But I'm practicing at home now, so when the snow and ice is gone, then I'll be ready to out to do my walks. That is if Spring ever gets here.
Have a great day everyone.

Everthing I do today, WILL effect my tomorrows, and effect those around me.
How do I want my tomorrows to be?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

God gave me the the gift of CHOICE, I must learn to use it wisely each day.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I''ll cross that bridge when I get to it.

Hi, I'm Cindy. I wear my pedometer most days but rarely get enough steps. I'm on my feet at work but it's mostly just standing in one place. I got a couple puppies with the thought that they will get me outside & walking. So far that hasn't happened (we have a big backyard for them to run). Now that the weather is getting better, there really is NO excuse.

Have a good walking day, all! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

My birthday is coming up April 3, and hubby and I will be going to the beach for a few days (we live in Florida) and I truly love walking at sunrise on the beach, where the sand and the water gives a really good workout for the legs, but it doesn't feel like the "burden" of exercise. I know some people run on the beach, but even if my knees could stand it, I'm happy to walk, and take the time to truly enjoy the wonders of nature. I want to live closer to a beach, so I could walk it every day. Maybe when I retire.

Hi everybody! I hope by joining this team it will keep me on track. I was walking 10,000 - 15,000 steps a day most days of the week in 2012, but then in early 2013 I had to have foot surgery, and then I got this awful bronchitis, I guess from being in the hospital, and then fluid went into my ears and I couldn't hear, and it just took me a long time to get healthy again, and an even longer time to get back on track with the walking. (I survived 2013!)

So, I'm working toward doing 10,000 + steps a day again, but have only been managing it about 3 times a week so far. Unfortunately, I've got heel spurs which flare up sometimes and problematic knees, so occasionally when I overdo, like on Sunday, where I "dance-walked" for three miles, (13,482 steps that day) the next day I could barely move around, so I only managed 3350 steps). I know, kind of idiotic, but sometimes I get into the "zone", and I can't get myself to stop. Listening to music while I'm walking and sort of "dance-walking" my way around the neighborhood is a lot of fun, and gives me hope that I will one day get stronger and lose some extra weight that clings to me like a bougainvillea bush. (Live in Miami)

Hope I can meet some new friends here. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello Everyone! My name is Vanessa and I've just joined the team! I have set a goal to walk 200,000 steps this month so I thought it'd be great to have the support of a team whose goals and geared towards walking and step tracking. It's an aggressive goal for me but I'm up for th challenge. I see so many high daily step totals on the team, so I'm hoping to glean from you all how you're getting in so many steps! I have a FitBit which I use to track steps. My page is private, so please feel free to friend me!! I'd love the support!

Hi, everyone! I'm Marta. I live in hilly Western Pennsylvania. I love walking and usually walk a lot outside, but sometimes depression and arthritis keep me at home. I was sick a lot this winter and now have to rebuild my distance and stamina. I'm extremely slow walker, but extremely stubborn, too :)
I'm fan of Chi Walking book.

Hi, I'm back with SparkPeople and looking for a very active team to help keep me walking (and tracking). This looks like the place! A surprise snowstorm has cut into my walking time today but I'm sure sunnier days are ahead. For now, it had to be some strength training inside. Missing my treadmill but when we refinished our (low) basement, what little headroom there had been was giving over to the new ceiling. Ugh! So I'm an outdoors walker but I find, on inclement days, that up & down our regular stairs sure gets the heart pumping.

And then the day came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. Anais Nin

emoticon Amanda to the team. You do NOT have to do 10K steps to be on this team. We have folks ranging from 200 to 20,000 - the important thing is that you keep moving and try to increase your steps gradually. Slow but sure is the best way not to overwhelm yourself and to stick with it.

Hello my name is Amanda,
I like to be able to walk 10,000 steps a day but it seems over whelming to me. My goal is to join this team so I can walk 10,000 steps each day within the next month or so. I stopped doing my daily walks so I want to get back into doing that as well. I have a Pedometer so am ready to get walking.

Hello, my name is Megan. I just joined this team with a personal goal to walk 10,000 steps or more for the next 100 days. I tend to average around 7000 steps so I'll be kicking it up a notch!

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I joined this team, but I never got around to introducing myself.

I'm Bine, from Germany, I've been on Spark for a couple of years and I got my first fitbit in July last year. Since then I have lost more than 25 lbs which motivates me a lot to stick to my 10,000 steps!

I already lost 50 lbs once and then regained most of it after quitting smoking while taking time off SP. That brought me back here in a hurry! I know I can do it again!
