I hate walking in the heat and humidity, and mall walking is okay, but I really feel more motivated if I can walk outdoors.

My husband and I found a solution. There's a local nature center that has a path through the woods. Not only is it shaded back there, but I find that walking on the natural materials is sooo much easier on my feet than the asphalt or cement in my neighborhood or the hard floors in the mall.

Guess I just lost my last excuse to avoid exercise! emoticon

On really hot days, I take advantage of the treadmill at they gym. I set the incline to 1.0 to reduce the benefit of the treadmill motion.

For me, it is worth it to get up early and get the walk in before the sun rises. It is much nicer then, but even then, sometimes it is hot.

Marie,
I also finished my first week and I agree - having a specific goal does help. emoticon

We're not expecting any rain, but the heat and humidity are going to impact my walking this week, too. Hate the mall walking, but it may be my only choice.

Good luck!

I started walking this week. Having a goal to work towards and walking with a friend to kept me accountable while making the week fun. We are supposed to get rain this week so perhaps we will be mall walking to reach the goals of week 2. emoticon
