Get out there and take a walk after dinner. Change it up weekly, run, skate, new route, interval training, etc. I know we are starting the day after the first day of summer, forgive me, I've been busy!

Week 1 June 21-27 Starting out slow, getting in the routine of walking after dinner.
Week 2 June 28-July 4 Still slow, walking daily, but only a few minutes.
Week 3 July 5-11 Walkin, walkin!
Week 4 July 12-18 Walking, alternating lunges, backward, sideways, and regular.
Week 5 July 19-25 Same as last week.
Week 6 July 26-August 1
Week 7 August 2-8
Week 8 August 9-15
Week 9 August 16-22
Week 10 August 23-29
Week 11 August 30-September 5
Week 12 September 6-12
Week 13 September 13-19
Week 14 September 20-22
Yes, we stop on a short week, autumn is just around the corner! Almost time for a new Challenge :)

I hear ya! Walking isn't possible during the school year for us, Girl Scouts, homework, etc. We are working on a bit of orienteering ourselves, in our GS Troops, starting out a step at a time. Younger ones, pointing out "landmarks" to help guide them around. Brownies, they can begin to read a map and learn the directions. Juniors and up, they can use a compass, read a map, go about it themselves (with a buddy, of course).

Playing in the backyard definately counts as "walking" lol! I picked walking just as a way to get everyone outside, really. Anything you do outside (or inside on "those" days) counts. Good luck :)

Tigger - I think this is a great idea. Walking isn't possible for my family every night, but it's a good reminder to do as much as we can, even if it's just playing in the backyard for a little while. When we're having nice summer weather, I love to get everybody out on a hike or bike ride. We might give orienteering a try too!

Thanks for your energy for this forum!
