up and down some stairs today at work
it's very difficult to do much exercise these days. looking forward to getting a replacement hip on Jan. 9th even though there is lots of physio to go through afterwards. I will feel so much better when i can do 'normal' exercising.

Well, my plan to increase pace/decrease time did not work today ...

Walked 2 hours ... (neighbor was a bit upset - family/teenager issues - so I let her walk it out/talk it out ... did choose an easier street however - no hills)

Nitnat - good to see you joining us here ... and yes, CONGRATS on that 41 lb. weight loss this year (and the year's not over, right?). I hope I manage to lose a few pounds between now and January 1!!! Tough time of year to do so!

Getting up this morning I could 'feel' the walk from yesterday! But my neighbor showed up (thank goodness) and we took off. I was going to go by myself if she didn't show but I might not have walked as long as we did on my own. We walked 45 min today. We probably were a bit slower pace (due to me). She was ready to go more if I wanted but I decided to be reasonable and not push it more 2 days in a row! We have walking planned for tomorrow as well.

She is MUCH younger (by 30+ years) - but has never exercised/hates exercise - but is enthused about walking with me. She's a slow walker which works out PERFECTLY for me ... I don't need to be winning any races ... one foot in front of the other solidly on the ground is my objective - ha! She has a little bit of weight to lose and that is her interest but we both are loving getting to know each other this way.

I have had 2 or 3 step meters or pedometers over the last 15-18 years? It was with an organization that first started the 10,000 step program ... can't remember their 'name' ... tried to find on internet just now but there are tons of walk programs. Anyway, they had these little cheap basic step meters ... I think my first one was $5 ... lasted forever ... had a cover ... I wore it out. Case finally broke. Got the 2nd one ... lost it. The 3rd one prices had gone up to around $10 ... I chose one without a cover which was $7 ... I was buying mine and one for a friend I worked with so we could walk at lunch. Anyway, that is the one I still have. Regretted THAT ... choosing one without a cover ... when I bend over sometimes it 'resets' the count. (tummy roll!) So that blew wearing it 'all day' to get a daily total ... not just a walking total.

It probably is the battery wearing out ... I just glanced on Amazon and there are tons of meters starting from $1 up - ha! Cheaper than a new battery - ha! But then THEY are cheap too ... not very good reviews - no surprise there. I got tired of trying to find a reasonable one with free shipping.

Right now I'm not too concerned about the steps ... I can go by the 'time' I walk. In the past counting steps and shooting for the 10,000 daily total WAS a motivator for me. Now I consider it good IF I just get up and manage to do 'anything' daily ... through the pain!!!!!!! Maybe when I feel better (and my bank account does too - ha!) I'll spring for a new counter ...

I'd like something I could put in my pocket but do not know how accurate that would be? I also want something ... not expensive! I have so many other things more important to our 'living' here that money needs to go to ...

As long as I 'move' daily I'm doing good ... don't have to know exact amount, calories burned, etc. etc. Just HAVE TO KEEP MOVING!

NITNAT...so glad you are here with us. we all are trying to loose weight. Great Job on loosing the 41 pounds!!! emoticon

i got a spark tracker in 2014 for myself as a birthday present to myself to check my steps and to motivate me to walk more and it has helped to motivate me. some days or should i say most days especially this month i have surprised myself on how many steps i have made in a day. unfortunately spark no longer makes their trackers and when mine no longer works or hopefully never, but if i loose it i will be lost with out it. the spark tracker was a a reduced price and the cheapest tracker, but at the time didn't know why they were selling them so cheap and that was because they were selling them off as they were not going to sell any more. use your fitnesspal...i have no idea what that is, but if it works for you it works.

cool on carving the 2 pumpkins. even a little yoga works as it means you did something. there are days i ache all over and some times i let it slide, but there are times i just need to push myself and walk Panda as she looks forward to these daily walks. oh, yes we all have flare ups and those times we may need to rest and take it easy and when the flare up gets better just get back to working out slowly. the name of the game is if you fall down 9 times you get up 10 and keep moving on.

have a good day. hugs to you.

Everyone is so good at walking. Great job everyone. Yesterday was cold and rainy and today is worse. When the weather changes like that I tend to have flair ups so no gym for me last night. I did carve 2 amazing pumpkins last night and did a little yoga though.

I noticed everyone seems to have trackers. I don't have a FitBit but I use MyFitnessPal I've lost 41 pounds so far this year. I love Spark for motivation and am so glad groups like this exist.

DJ...great walk. it is so much more fun to walk with a friend. i hope you walk on Wed. your step meter does it take a battery? i didn't get all my steps on Monday as i forgot to transfer my tracker from one pair of jeans to the other. i got my tracker from spark when they had them reduced...little did i know at that time they were selling them off as they no longer sell them. the tracker was my birthday present to me in 2014 from me. i just wanted to see how many steps i did in a days time. the tracker has motivated me to walk more.

i did barn work for 26 minutes and ended up walking over 1/3rd of a mile.
walked panda for 31 minutes and i walked over 1/2 of a mile. didn't walk as far as we usually do as the weather has changed and i was in pain so we cut our walk a little short.
i did hang some Halloween decorations today and that entailed climbing a 2 step little ladder and put some flower pots away for next year when growing time starts again.

My neighbor showed up to walk this morning ... forget about taking it slow and building up!

We walked 1 hour and 35 minutes!!!! She thought it'd only been about 30 minutes ... I knew it was longer than that but had no idea it was what it was - ha! My step meter said "33 steps" - ha! Do 'ya think I need a new one? ha! It's VERY OLD ... cheapie ... not these new fancy dancy things out these days.

Anyway, it was a wonderful walk getting to know each other ... she's a delightful young lady and our conversation was lively enough it obviously 'kept us going'!

I told her I'd have to 'see' how I feel later today before I can say I 'will be there' tomorrow morning... but I think I'll be able to ... but I may set an 'alarm' on my phone to keep us from overdoing - ha!

Walked this morning ... 27 minutes (1,575 steps ... I usually do 2,000 steps in 20 minutes but this was good for me today as a 'start' getting back to walking).

Daisy is enjoying all this yardwork more than I am! She runs ahead of me when I tell her where we're headed to ... then noses about for a bit ... then lays down and watches me work my butt off.

Did another two hours today ... all cutting guinea grass. I just have a wee bit of clean up to do in the yard tomorrow and I'm done with it ... well, for a few days at least. Things grow SO FAST here and can get out of hand in no time. I need to get back inside and clean and clear. Not today though...

DJ...thank you for your condolences on the loss of my older dog. she was 14 and was in pain and her hip broke. she no longer is in pain and is happily chasing her ball and bring it back to be thrown again.

you are a busy lady and getting plenty of exercise. keep up what you are doing.

well, me I'm going to see what I can get into, other than trying to make some pieces of jewelry fro a small craft and dinner for the church ladies on Saturday. these ladies nights out are a yearly thing and are lots of fun. I will do barn work and walk Panda. this helps her with her missing my older dog that is now gone. she looks so forward to her walks and when she thinks it is time she is glued to my side and followers me everywhere. Saturday was a busy day for me and when I did have time I had to walk her at 8:30 pm in the dark. I took a cane with me for protection if anything arose, such as a wild animal.

hope you have another productive day. Hugs!

45 min watering gardens/hedge/etc. (still carrying the two 2-gallon watering pitchers back and forth...the 'watering system' we are 'going' to put in ... well, it's 'someday' - ha! meantime ... get lots of walking in while watering)

75 min bagging up yesterday's weeding/cuttings and cutting more guinea grass (almost done ... a bit more - hopefully tomorrow will finish up ... for this week - ha!).

Pandabear - so sorry to read of your having to put your older Aussie down recently. Know how hard that is ... (((((( hugs))))))!!!!!!

Today's activity:

Trimming trees - 27 min
Weeding/cutting guinea grass by hand - 78 min

I had planned to do yoga as well ... but really tired/pooped out! Maybe later this afternoon? Honestly - probably NOT - ha! (I did manage to get it done yesterday though!)

Gypsy...panda is an Australian Shepherd and she is a blue merle. I just put down my older Aussie (14 yr. old) last week on Wed.

I walk Panda about 30 minutes a day on a side road here. it is uphill half way and then we turn around and walk back down. this walk is at least 3/4 mile for us and of course we can go further when I'm up to it. I shovel horse manure for at least 15 minutes every day.

you just gave me a few more ideas to add for things to do and check in on. do you own some type of a tracker?

have you checked out some of the exercise videos sparks has on this site?

have a good day. I must get moving until later.

First I want to say, Panda is lovely just adorable. Is She from the Sheltie family? I use to have a blue marill who looked a little like her, named Mia. She is no longer with us, she is in doggie heaven. Now, I have a collie, named Missy and Max, my beagle. Outside cat, we named Venus. Have a great day!


I have been trying to add a few more sets in exercising, to my own pace. I do not keep track of fitness, but I do keep track of calories and nutrition.
So far, so good.

I like moving to the music also. I hope to get Panda out for a walk.

Even though I hate exercising, I have been doing some everyday. I like moving to my music and did some house work.

I am an intellingent person. I will control my emotions and not let my emotions control me. Everytime I am tempted to use food to satisfy my frustrated desires, build up my enjured ego or dull my senses, I will remember...even though I overeat in private, my excess poundage is there for all the world to see.
I will take off pounds sensibly!

I am so glad my laundry room is on the main floor.
I am doing very little today. Yesterday, I was on my feet for several hours. I wore a pair of slip on shoes with out support so my feet were really hurting. Darn Arthur!

I am learning not to plan much the day after I am out & about a great deal.
