Scottish Highlands Ways virtual walk sounds good. I'll have to do that one next. I started with the Appalachian trail. I feel like an ant walking this trail. LOL

Thank you for sharing Linda. I really want to do the walking app, but I cancelled my registration, when I read the terms of use and they share to third parties and demand to know your location, which I don't think is necessary if I'm doing a virtual walk in Greece. sigh. Such a bummer. emoticon

Linda, the Walking4Fun is the one I did before. It's nice having the pictures of the scenery that you're passing on your journey.

OK, folks! There's several ideas here for your consideration. Let's get moving.

Susan, two things.

(1) SP does not recognize the http:// or https:// You have to use the URL without that part.

(2) To make the link usable to team members, you have to use the ADD A LINK button above & add the URL that way or it won't work.

On some of my teams I suggested a game I created a few years ago.
I call it Cardio Through the Country. It's FUN!
I haven't logged my minutes in MONTHS.

But I think you can find the directions on my information page.
We've traveled through the U.S.A., South America, Central America, Canada. I was in Europe when I neglected to enter my minutes.

It's actually fun to do with kids.

And we all lived happily ever after...

F8CONE8,
Consistency was my worst weakness. I've overcome it these past two years.
The key was changing a little at a time until it became ingrained in me.

If exercise is your problem, I committed to just 10 minutes of cardio a day. That meant either walking or marching in place or bouncing on my trampoline while I watched a movie I liked.
It comforted me to know that 1. This was a SPARK COACH'S idea 2. It wasn't too much to ask of my body 3. I could go longer, or be done at 10 minutes withOUT feeling the guilt...this was VERY important to me, as I often feel like a failure, when I shouldn't.

How it helped.
It helped my view of myself. I was reaching a goal '10 minutes a day).
My conscience was clear- I DID work out!
And more importantly, my natural energy level began picking up after about 2-3 weeks. It became LESS of a chore and MORE of an enjoyment. And THAT is key!

The beauty of this plan is that you will find it opens up all new doors for you. When you have energy, you stop procrastinating on many other things in your life. And you start feeling HOPE again!

I enjoy recieving my Consistency Awards each month from Spark. Because I log in, track my fitness and nutrition and exercise regularly now, I've EARNED it! Feel great!
And NONE of that involves the numbers on my scale! Woo hoo!

Linda, I'm interested in the virtual walks. I've never heard of the other state or country virtual walks. Where do I go to do that?

F8CONE8 - Great job on your water intake and walking. What ever food is your weakness keep it out of the house and replace it with something else.

Today I wanted to buy a small frozen coconut cake, but my ds didn't want to share, so I didn't get it.

Consistency is a real problem for me. I could sure use some help making better choices. Currently, my food intake is out of control but my water intake and walking is improving. I do spend a lot of time on the computer working on my Genealogy. Ideas?

What about 10 minutes of walking 5 days a week or step challenge. In the past I have been on a team that picked a destination on a daily basis we entered our steps along the way we got to see the sites it was fun though I don't really remember all the particulars about the challenge it was on map my walk or something like that

I could probably find it on my original spark page
