Just got back from a three week camping trip to the Grand Canyon and surrounding area. I lost 10 1/2 pounds during that time because we were constantly active. The next time someone tells me you can lose weight through "dieting" alone ... I will beg to differ!

Today 60 minutes on the treadmill.

Hi everybody,

I did my first really long walk over the weekend for a suicide prevention fundraiser. I walked 18.34 miles in just under 5 hours. I was really excited. I didn't even get blisters but I was pretty sore the next day. Today I'm already feeling back to normal.

Together we can do anything

I did my first walking 5k on Saturday. I usually walk about 17 or 18 minute miles but I did an average of 14.5 min miles and it felt great.

first time I walk those many steps since I got the fitbit. I think it's because it is finally getting nice here and it feels so good to be outside. now to keep on getting more steps in every day.

No, I don't use a heart rate monitor. I just use a pedometer whenever I think to put it on. I can't do 45 minutes walking all at once. I can manage 15 - 20 minutes at a time. Twice a month I do push myself hard with the walking since it's shopping days and I usually end up walking for an average of 3 hours, but I pay for it the next couple of days.

My second day of rest ... tomorrow ... 45 minutes on treadmill.

Do you use a heart rate monitor?? If so, what kind.

We leave for the Grand Canyon in three weeks. We will be gone three weeks. When we get back, I need to figure out what to do next:

Increase speed and keep the same time of 45 minutes. OR
Start interval walking and keep he same time of 45 minutes.

42 minutes DONE! 4 2 minutes. I weigh less today than yesterday. I know the scale is just one tool of losing weight but it seems to be lower on Fri, Sat and Mon, Tues than it is on my official weigh-in on Sun.

Does anyone use a heart monitor??? What kind? Does it help motivate you to keep your speed up??? I have been thinking about getting one for our trip. Because I walk on a treadmill I know how fast I am going and sometimes it is the reason I keep moving.

I got in my 40 minutes on the treadmill today. I missed yesterday. I had a headache, nose bleed and didn't sleep the night before ... again. It's a good thing I am going to the doctor Monday for my annual.

Eagle - do you put your tracker on as soon as you get up??? Make an effort to get up every hour and move around.

I hear ya ... I have been walking on my treadmill five days a week since mid February and today felt just as hard as the first day. I have built up from 10 to 37 minutes now ... I increase my time every other week. I am striving for 45 minutes five days a week.

I do feel healthy and powerful eating clean and exercising.

I take Sundays off too, from walking that is. I teach a Sunday School class of 6 & 7 year olds. I'm with them for 2 hours so I count it as playing with children for 30 minutes. By the time I come home, I'm wiped! So much for a day off.

Speaking of walking. I find that even though I'm walking a little farther each week, it's not really getting any easier. I really want to walk for 30 - 40 minutes a day and enjoy doing it, but my knee hurts, my foot hurts, I'm tired by the time I get to 20 minutes and really have to push to get in the last 10 or 20 minutes. Is it ever going to get easier?

Hey y'all ... I have been part of Walking Sparklers for some time now but couldn't find anyone to "talk" to. I started the thread "Need Support ... Often" for daily support but most of the time I am talking to myself.

I have been walking on my treadmill since mid February and have built up to 35 minutes. I am not sure what I am doing but am striving to get to 45 minutes as a foundation of endurance. I increase my time every other week for five minutes.

Yesterday I walked both indoors and outdoors. It was a really nice day so we went to our local walking path. It was really beautiful but was I surprised at how different it was from walking indoors. There were hills! And a lot of other people with their dogs and strollers. I'm kind of a loner so this was weird for me. Overall I enjoyed it though!

Good morning and Happy Easter! emoticon

Today is a day off for me. I walk 6 days and take Sunday's off. Like you MTN_KTTEN, I should be increasing my time this week but I'm not sure I will be able to. I've come down with a cold and I'm thinking I'll just maintain this week. I really like your idea of increasing every other week. As the times get longer, that makes so much more sense! Thanks!

I'm glad you rejoined MTN_KITTEN! I'm on the working up part too. 8 weeks ago I could hardly do a half a mile, now I'm up to 1.5 miles in 30 minutes. Next week it's going to have to go up again. I'm not sure I'm ready but so far I've done everything I've put my mind to. So here's to US!

Good Morning Sparklers! I guess we're all too busy walking to chat! That's a good thing. I joined this team yesterday because I like the idea of walking. I can't run, so walking it will be. I've never enjoyed walking. I would rather swim a mile than walk a mile! But as I watch other people walk, it has become more attractive to me. That and it's the only thing I have access to at the moment. Eventually I want to walk a 5K at a descent pace. Maybe this fall or next spring. I want to be good and ready.

So have a great day everyone and keep on walking!

emoticon I'm here!
I am planning on a 6 miler and will check back if I met that goal-I did 3.79 so less but I walked fast (for me) and did it in 60 min.
I see there is a thread for just miles so will post there next time

I am going to get myself in there and complete my 25 minutes on the treadmill. Got up late this morning, then grandson came to spend the night. We had to go to the grocery store before every one else so we could have some good things to eat (healthy). We see the bunnies tomorrow at the library.

Hey gang! I am making some Spark time!! emoticon Took some time away, didnt really mean to, just real life and getting more involved in my community took me away from Spark. But I am going to find the balance because I love and miss my daily Spark and my spark buddies!

This is your journey. Take the wheel and drive!
