Yesterday I walked around NYC for 5 hours. And I wasn't tired or winded

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

I like this idea and thank you for thinking of it.

I have been real proud of myself lately. 3 months ago my muscles were so weak that I couldn't even walk a block but I consistently tried and started losing weight and the last 2 days I have walked 2 miles which took me 70 minutes ( i know that is slow) but the fact is that I made it and kept my heart rate up the whole time. That is why I measure my success and calories burned by my heart rate rather than speed. Right now I still have to sit down several times during the walk just to catch my breath, so my next goal is to do it without stopping.
Thanks for letting me share.

I'm going to break my personal record for daily crunches.

Hi - I'd hoped to spend a bit more time on this, but I'm having to think while on "babysitting break".

I had an idea for a topic. It's a personal challenge to ourselves I guess. What I was thinking, is to like post when we break some personal record of our own - whether it be fitness goals, or whatever. Not competing against each other of course, but ourselves. Things that are measurable are best, but not necessarily. For instance, "Today I made it all the way around the block, whereas I'd only been able to make it halfway before." Or, "Today I walked for 45 consecutive minutes, which breaks my previous record of 40 minues." It can be worded however - as it's Personal record breaking and/or Accomplishments. (I made a 90 on my report card when previously I'd only ever made an 88)(Or I stayed in my calorie range 4 days this week, when my old record has been 3) You get the idea.

I'm thinking it's just a way to celebrate & share our personal accomplishments. (no competition intended, so it's not really a challenge)

Ok - here's mine of course - which is what inspired me:

This week I walked & jogged, 4.21 miles, with a total of 64 consecutive minutes. TWICE. (Two different days - 2 different routes, with the same milage & time - kind of odd I thought, but still)
This beats 2 records for me. My previous highest before was 3.68 miles & 60 minutes, back on 10/6.
-which means I'm gaining endurance strength.

Jenn
