Back to the Senior Center, and I did well with my steps. On the other hand, I had a big lunch out with a friend and brownies with Philippe for Family Home Evening...

Good job Veronique. Keep up the good work.

I walked early while it was cool and walked my mile and a quarter in 21 minutes. :)

I understand your predicament Charlene. With your health issues, this can be VERY hard because you need to be prudent.
No excuse on my end, however...

Well, at least I lost one of the pounds I had gained, so there is progress!

I walked a mile and a quarter in spite of my stomach ache. The good Lord be praised.

Veronique, don't get discouraged. It is a little hard when your darling son wants to make all those goodies and then you get invited to a party with more goodies. Your doing better than I am on the veggies and steps. Veggies are the hardest things for me to get down. They always give me a stomach ache. I guess they are hard for me to digest with no gall bladder and an ulcer to boot.

Doing well with the fruit and veggies, and the steps, not so well with the exercise at the Senior Center this week (but I have an excuse: things to do with my son in the morning), and terrible on the weight loss, as I have gained...

While it was cooler this morning and not wanting to wait, I walked the mile and a quarter plus two hundred more steps. I gotta make up for not walking the mile and a quarter yesterday. it was only about 3/4 of a mile.

Didn't do that well today. Only walked a half a mile here at home, but got in at least 1000 steps in the Temple. So I am lacking the fourth.

Well I didn't walk a mile parse today. But I heavy cleaned my bedroom and closet for at least 5 hours. I was surprise to see that I burned 1200 calories according to the chart. Think I will do some more heavy cleaning tomorrow. :) Actually I started at 8 am and didn't finish until 6 pm. I stopped only long enough to get lunch and supper and lie down for about 30 minutes. I was going to walk but figured I had done enough. :D

I walked a mile plus a quarter in 22 minutes. One more day this week and I will have my four days in. I am going to add another +4 Challenge. I am going to clean and organize at least four drawers or cupboards or something a week. I am going to get my house in order one way or another. It is so easy to neglect cleaning and organizing and it is something the spirit has been admonishing me to do now for a very long time. It is time I obey.

Wow, Charlene! This is great!

On my end, I am keeping to 4 veggies and 4 fruit a day.
I have increased my steps by 1,000 (average) a day (I did over 15,000 steps yesterday).
This week, I already went twice to the Senior Center (I cannot go tomorrow, I have Bible Study), and I am planning to go Thursday and Friday, so this will make it 4 days.

The only planned "4" I am not reaching is losing the 4 pounds. I am stuck right now and can't seem to be able to break away from this plateau. With half the month gone, even if I do break away, losing 4 pounds seems very unlikely.

Goal of four and four fruits and veggies ...only three days when I lacked and only got 3
Goal of 5 pounds...220 down to 215 ... well I am at 217.5 and half way through the month ..I can do this!

Posting at end of month of July... lost the 5 pound goal down to 214.8!
Feeling a need to cut down and stop the guilty feeling for not being able to keep up the teams so will bid a sad farewell - may peak in on you occasionally - will miss so many of you!

Sarah, that is great. God bless you to accomplish that. I didn't get in my walk today. I still may be able to do it before I go to bed.

Well it is kinda late in July...but my son has been here so I didn't want to focus on working on goals while he was here...so now my goal for the rest of the month is to increase my walking. Try to get in minimum of 2 around the block walks....start increasing to neighborhood area, then to 2 mile park.

I walked a mile and a quarter on the 10th. Now I have to do that tonight. I figured I walked at least a quarter of a mile in Wal-Mart when I got groceries today so I am going to walk a mile this evening.

Today was Day 4 of my exercise plan at the Senior Center. Yipee!
I have also increased my daily average steps by 1,000 all week.
I am continuing with my eating of 4 veggies and 4 fruit a day (although I am cheating a bit, counting sometimes the tomatoes as fruit and sometimes as veggies!)

Progress but not perfection. I figured I walked at least a quarter of a mile in the Temple and up stairs to boot. But I didn't get in my mile walk so the quarter of a mile in the Temple was not really a plus today. I will do better tomorrow.

I am trying to lose 4 pounds in July.
I will be going to the Senior Center exercise room at least 4 days a week.
I will be eating 4 servings of fruit and 4 servings of veggies every day.

I have set my goals for loss of 5# this month so that fits in your 4, also to eat at least 4 fruits AND four veggies each day...I seem to go to extremes...getting all fruits of all veggies in a day - I need BALANCE in this.

I like this challenge. As a matter of fact, my lucky # is 4. So I think I will walk 20 minutes like I have been doing plus 4 minutes. That will give me another quarter of a mile. I will do this for at least 4 days a week for 4 weeks and see if that makes a difference in my weight loss.

Thanks Veronique 4 the challenge. emoticon

Choose an area to improve by 4. It can be improving your exercise time by 4% or by 4 minutes, losing 4 pounds during the month, spending 4 more minutes daily reading Scripture, adding 400 more steps to your daily count, adding 4 more vegetables or fruit per day or per week, drinking 4 more glasses of water per day or per week, etc.
