How about we meet in the main/lower lobby area. Near the Cookie Company, Evangels, Jewelry Fix It and main office/restrooms. It will just be you and me today. I'll see you there at 3:30.

Slow and steady wins the race!

It's pretty chilly and cloudy so far~it looks like it might be safer to do the mall. Where do you usually start? I can be there at 3:30 to meet you.

The weather is supposed to be questionable all day today from the forcast. As previously noted -- fair weather Park, foul weather Mall. We may not know until much later today what the weather is really going to be like. I have Michele's number and she is close to the park so I suggest we call just before the meet to decide where -- only cuz I'd really rather be outside if I have a chance (selfish, I know). Or we can just play it safe and go to the Mall!

I'm in for whatever is decided!

Slow and steady wins the race!

Hi Ladies! I am planning on joining you today for the walk, so let me know for sure the time and place. I assume 3:30 at the park if not raining and the mall if raining, but I will be wherever you tell me to :)
See you later today,
Michele
P.S. Sorry I haven't been online to check in lately, but I am still here!

Hey, Erin! I'll be there to pick you up! Not to worry! Back in the pink!!! I'm sure you know by now that Cheryl is buried with last minute details of the surprise party so we are on our own. Do you know yet if Michele can make it? I haven't seen any posts from her this week so far (which doesn't mean a thing because I can go blind without notice:).

See you soon!

Steph

Steph, I don't know about Cheryl, but you and I can still walk at the Mall at our usual time. If you don't feel comfortable driving then e-mail me your address and David and I can pick you up (my DH loves to chauffer). You may also want to consider texting Cheryl with "Bad weather, MALL??" since she isn't able to call till much later. If you still haven't had lessons on texting then call and leave her a message cuz she can always text back 8)

Cheryl, I know you mentioned not coming in bad weather -- so if you decide to stay North I'm okay with that! Let us know what you decide by calling/texting us before you leave.

I may have to break down and get a phone myself if this keeps up 8D

Slow and steady wins the race!

Hey Erin and Steph,

Okay Gang ... it's raining pretty good right now .... weather reports are still threatening mixed snow/rain today, tonight and possibly into tomorrow morning. From Medford we drive uphill more than downhill ... I'm a chicken ... Irene knows it ... we need options????? (at least I do:)
I wouldn't be comfortable asking Cheryl to make another trip downhill either.

Let me know.?. Please.?.

Last night's walk went well. Lots of giggles and girl talk but we did miss having Michele with us. We hope to see her next week.

Saturday at 7am -- Steph and I will be at the walking at the Rouge Valley Mall . Feel free to join us. We generally walk for an hour -- or two 8)

Next Tuesday's walk is being scheduled for a 4:00 meet at Applegate Trail Rest Area - Rogue Valley Park Exit. If the weather is foul we will be in Medford at the Mall. More details to follow as the day get closer.

Slow and steady wins the race!

The weather is kinda yucky here.... a slow drizzle but wet none the less. I suggest a Rogue Valley mall walk.

Lower level, door 3 -- opposite Macy's home store entrance. We will catch up with you whether you get there by 3:30 or 4:30.

Carolyn -- thanks for the tour last night. I look forward to seeing the pictures for our lastest team post.

Michele -- I have your shirt ready for delivery on Thursday at Bear Creek Park (weather permitting -- if not see you at the mall) . We can meet around 3:30 and walk around some until Cheryl can get there around 4:30 or so. Does that sound good to you????

Steph -- you up for some extra walking!?!?! If you are, I'll see you about 3:15 or so. If not, I can have David drive me for the early walk -- or better yet I can walk to the park too!!!

Cheryl -- we will see you tomorrow! We will text you before we head out to let you know for sure where we will be -- park / mall !!

WOO HOO and a happy Wednesday to ya'll!

Slow and steady wins the race!

Hi,
I just got home from the dentist, while I was gone someone stole the balloons off of our mailbox. Sorry, I thought that would have been a good way to find my driveway. Count the guardrails instead - I just sent everyone an email with reminder directions. See you later.

Steph loaded the shirts for Tuesday's GP walk. Carolyn and Cheryl will get the first honors -- if Steph doesn't beat them too it by wearing hers that day 8)

I will have to remember to take Michele's to the Park on Thursday.

Thank you Michele for the awesome PHOTO SHOOT!

Kudos to Steph for helping me IRON and walking with me as well!

Hey everyone, there was a bit of discussion last night about the location of future walks. So that no one has to go out of town everytime and we can be a bit more consistent on times and locations for our new coming members, we thought Tuesdays in GP and Thursdays in Medford.

Medford walks would be at Bear Creek Park on fair weather days and Rogue Valley Mall on foul weather days.

GP days can be at any location Cheryl chooses since she is a regular and knows the area -- track is a nice option as was Applegate Trail. We can walk with Carolyn on those days also.

I don't know if you want to use Rogue Valley Mall as the GP foul weather location or if there is a better location in GP. Please let us know.

Have a great weekend everyone.... see ya'll on Tuesday!!!!

Cheryl, once you get off the interstate you should be on HIGHLAND. Take that to the ROUNDABOUT and follow it around 3/4 to go between the store and the fire dept portion of Siskiyou. There is only one parking log on that side and lots of free side street parking. You can see the playground area from either of them.


Michele, hopefully you will be able to join us. If Steph can't make it by 3:30 then I still can. I never mind putting in extra steps for the day and we can always walk circles until the others get there 8)

Steph, what time did you want to get together????

Everyone..... if you can give Cheryl better directions, PLEASE do!!! thank yo 8)

Slow and steady wins the race!

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome! Hubby's plane gets in around 12 and if I know him, he will want to get out on the golf course this afternoon, so I'm hoping that's the case and I can join you for walking. I will meet you there at 3:30 if I can make it~I have Erin's number, so I will call if not coming so you don't wait for me. Bear Creek Park is very near where I live, so I won't have a problem finding you by the playground area.

Walk in Medford on Thursday April 10. Bear Creek Park.

I'm horrible with directions so here are some web addresses for you to look at. You will find us on the Siskiyou Blvd side of the park near the playground.

Cheryl -- Steph and I can always meet early and get some extra steps in so we go slower when you get there ;) We can meet you around 4:15 -- you have our numbers so call when you get there.

Steph -- I'm game for meeting at our normal time (3:30) a few extra steps never hurt me 8)

Michele -- you are welcome to join us. You have my number if you have questions or need to find us.

Hi Cheryl!

I guess we've all spaced the details. How about we meet in GP ... same time ... same place? At the school track.?. Holler if you want to change it. (I'm thinking we may get Becky interested in the team???)....(her name WAS Becky, right?:) jeese

Your Brilliant Friend,

Steph

I'm okay during the week, but weekends are tougher for me to get 10000 in. Even the walk with the kids didn't rack it up for me.

Our days with the girls really get me over the hump!! I generally get between 10000 and 20000 on those days.


How about we plan on walking with Carolyn on next Tuesday, April 14th. I asked her to e-mail address and directions to all of us, just in case.

And we may have a new walker among us on Thursdays! Michele has asked about our walks so I promised to keep her informed.

TTFN

Yeah, but Erin, WE ARE A FANTASTIC TEAM which means we can aim for 10,000 STEPS (I almost had a heart attack when "miles" was mentioned) and MAKE IT most of the time. Right? Think positive! Stay active! Get Fittive!!!!! (couldn't think of a 'correct' word on that one:)

UMMMM... girls, I hate to burst your bubble but I'm sure you didn't put in 10000 MILES... steps probably... However in order to make you feel better about it -- the average person these days is barely doing 2000 steps with all the desk jobs and such the ones they claim are doing 3000-5000 a day are from people who are on their feet all day. I do about 10000 steps a day with 30-40 minutes of speed-walking during lunch and some walking through out the day. On weekends it's another story -- unless I put in an hour or more of jogging my daily routine registers about 5000. Here's some other information I found -- Don't beat yourselves up -- acknowledge that you are doing a wonderful thing by moving at all !!!

Many people view 10,000 steps a day as too few for children, yet not achievable by many who are aged, sedentary, or who have chronic diseases. Some suggest instead of using a blanket 10,000 steps per day that instead the goal be based on the individual's baseline plus an increment of steps. For example, a woman who wears a pedometer in her ordinary activities notes that she logs 4000 steps per day. Her goal should be to add the equivalent of a half hour of walking to her day, for example 2000-3000 more steps per day.

New Goals

Based on the best evidence as of the end of 2003, Dr. Catrine Tudor-Locke recommends the following:

Classification of pedometer-determined physical activity in healthy adults:

1) Under 5000 steps/day may be used as a "sedentary lifestyle index"
2) 5,000-7,499 steps/day is typical of daily activity excluding sports/exercise and might be considered "low active."
3) 7,500-9,999 likely includes some exercise or walking (and/or a job that requires more walking) and might be considered "somewhat active."
4) 10,000 steps/day indicates the point that should be used to classify individuals as "active".
5) Individuals who take more than 12,500 steps/day are likely to be classified as "highly active".

Cheryl -- we know what you look like... you stay at a mall entrance (not a store entrance) and we should walk past you (as long as you are on the lower lever 8)

Door #3 is a main entrance and you can see the #3 on it and the Macy's homestore when you walk in (whose main store entrance is on the other side of the mall).

hope that helps!


Steph -- I will be ready early if you want to get a bit of walking in before hand. - just give me a pick-up time 8)

TTFN
