Good morning!!!!!!!

I haven't posted with this team since December(I wasn't getting any support back then)but I thought I would try again!!!!!!!!

t was VERY HARD to walk for me during the winter but since the weather is getting warmer I'm going to try & start again this week. Today I, also, plan to do some cleaning, read & crochet. I haven't been feeling too great but I'm going to try to walk this week.

I could use some support-so PLEASE be there for me!!!!!!

I'm going to try to walk outside today - just getting outside for me is a good thing! If for some reason I can't, I will go to my gym or ride my stationary bike at home. I'm starting out slow so hopefully I can't get in 20-30 minute walk.

I love to walk, with this snow it has been impossible though! How do you walk when the weather is bad? I have Leslie Sansone WATP and my sister and I decided to start our day with it .. Is there anyone else doing a walking DVD?

I usually walk to work and again at lunch, but now that it gets dark earlier, I'll walk home. I love walking at night! Also I've lost 10 more pounds! emoticon

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

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.
