Well, no one has responded since I did yesterday, but here I am again. I'm going to post this just in case the person who started this post reads it some day and will know what she did for me. Or in case someone else is reading it 4 months from now, as I did, and gets inspried.

This morning I danced around for 10', well, actually more than 10'. The goal was the 10' so I could post again here, but I actually danced around for more like 20-30 min. cool!!

Again, thank you to the one who started this post.

Blessings to all!

Hi, my name is Dalena (pronounced duh-LAY-na) Happy to meet you! As of today, I live in Iowa.

Thank you for the challenge!!! I did it!!! You wrote that over 4 months ago and you just inspired me to take a 10' walk that I would not have otherwise done.

I'm at my son's babysitting grandchildren. They're playing together so nicely I was taking this time to investigate this team site. And then read your post and I took the two grandsons and the dog and we went for a walk!!

They are 10 & 7 and I explained to them that a new friend I'd met on here challenged me to do it, now I get to get back on the computer and tell her I did it!!

Thank you!!! Let's do this again sometime!

I don't feel like it, but I'm heading out the door for a run right now!! I will feel better once I get my heart rate up.

I had a nice walk, it's funny how when I take an "extra" walk it's a whole different thing from an "exercise" walk. It's like for the exercise I'm thinking all powerful and strong thoughts and positive thinking about how I can do this and AM. But with the extra walk I took it was more carefree, no heavy thinking. Very relaxing. I loved it!

NOMOREBREAKS,
Thanks for making me get up and shake my booty. It was a nice celebration of having 6 pounds less booty to shake than I did on January 1. I woke up blue missing my chocolate lab who died of cancer earlier this year. I feel better now. Thanks!

Thanks no more breaks,
I did one mile walking with Leslie this morning and went to the gym and walked for 35 minutes on the treadmill. I plan on dancing for 10 minutes for bed. I can't dance because I have no real skills but I love it.

I did it!! At downhill ski lessons with the kids I walked up the hill twice and was walking around outside for an hour with them. Next weekend I'm putting on the skis to do some downhill skiing of my own!

It's nice having you all here for support and motivation. I actually think that I would have given up on my second overeating day without everyone here. This is more than I usually participate here and it's been nice making connections and getting familiar with everyone.

That out of the way now, I'd also like to throw a surprise challenge at you all.

If you are reading this, then I challenge you right now to get up off your seat and do an extra mini-workout. 10 minutes. Dance, walk, jump up and down, play an active Wii game with the kids, take your toddler for a walk, walk the dog, do squats, use your resistance band, ANYTHING.... but do it for 10 minutes. I'll join you. I'll go put my pants on and take the dog (and my preschooler) for a walk. :) Report in when you're done!
