Great job OMAOF! I have kept my promise and I am walking 1.5 miles in 30 minutes every day except Sunday. I lost the 3 lbs I gained over the Thanksgiving holiday. I pray I won't do that again at Christmas time.
"Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen." Heb. 11:1
I Have a desk job, and work on the 3rd floor of our building. i have a water bottle at my desk, so I walk down the stairs to get ice and water, then walk back up the stairs. I try to do this 3 times during the day. To get to and from work. I walk from my apt to the bus stop which is 2 blocks from home, then I take the bus to the train and then the train to my next but, have to walk 2 blocks to catch the next bus. then I take bus to my stop by work and walk abt2 blocks to my building. then reverse in the evening. My work also pays for me to have 1 1/2 hours of paid exercise time. Usually take 30 min walk during lunch 3 times a day.

Fairly recently I switched job functions. Previously I worked in a lab and spent a majority of the day on my feet walking from instrument to instrument. Now I sit behind a desk most of the day. I've found just getting up a few times per day and walking helps with my alertness and energy levels. Luckily the facility I work in has an indoor "spine" connecting all of our buildings that is almost exactly 1/4 mile long. If I walk that from one end to the other and back 3 times per day that is an extra 1.5 miles that I wouldn't have ordinarily walked.
With you on my team and me on yours we are bound to succeed!
