That was pretty much what I was thinking, about 10. Thanks!

Enjoy life to the "nth" power! If you have goals and aspirations set forth to do them now. Life is too short. Like Nike says...."Just Do It"

Procrastination is not an option. Never say never. Tomorrow is not promised to us. Enjoy!! As my cousin says...."Do you"!!!

I'm definitely in. Not only does the stair climbing tone the thighs and buttocks, but I love the cardio workout that I get as well. I'll measure tonight.

Kia will you make this a sticky topic so it's easy to find and post? Thanks!

Word Up!!!!!! (LOL)

Okay....It is time to step it up a notch....lets tone up the thighs and buns...LOL

Now in an effort to try to do a little more toning without doing weights just yet...I decided to do some stairs at home.

So I did the load of towels...my Washer and Dryer is in the basement (mental note buy a new house...LOL)

Folded the towels in my living room while watchin TV. And said hhhmmmm...I am gonna get some excercise in. SOOOOOO I carried the towels upstairs one at a time which meant 10 flights of steps. Now I spent the night at the top of the steps with that last towel...(Just kidding...but wasnt that funny thinking about it..winks) My legs felt like there was a little leprechan with a lighter on my thighs...so that has to be good right!!!!

So I saw Wcynthia posted that she did some stairs and I thought why not enhance our workout..

So the challenge is to do a few flights of stairs a day...not to just get where you are going ...but on purpose...sound good???

Any takers???

We will post what we did here...and see how it works out...I also suggest

1. Measure your thighs
2 try on your tight jeans
3. do this for 1 month
4. then we will measure the thighs again.
5. revisit the jeans.

You dont have to post your measurement...just the inches lost...Let's do the Dang Thang!!!!
