Hi, MONTANAGAL1. Glad to see you post; but the most important thing of course is getting in the walking. Sure sounds like you are getting that done. I'm sure the dogs appreciate it too. :-)


I walked 40 minutes worth of Wii Free Step yesterday.

Spent a lot of time outside today gardening. So my "walking" was back and forth between flower beds, to the dump pile, in/out of the house. LOL Nice day to be out.

Too hot & muggy here to do much walking outside. I did a short walk up the drive to get the newspaper this morning. The rest of my 'walking' today was via Wii Fit stepping.

Got in more running than walking today, but figured that's still a good thing.

That's a great idea, REDSKINGIRL. Good luck in the upcoming 5K!

Wed: 30 mins walking/stepping on Wii Fit plus a little outdoors with dog.

I'm getting some walking in but not too good on changing it up much for myself so far. Need to work on that.

Thurs started a stair-climbing challenge so that will change it for me a bit, if I can make it up/down all those stairs. 130 so far today.

I'm working on being a success story!

Huge Accomplishments:
June 2011- Done Girl Page of the Month

6/28/11- Done Girl of the Day!

I'm ready to lose this weight once and for all!!

I will reach my goal 1 pound at a time.

Glad you guys like the challenge.

Bear poop, MONTANAGAL1? Yikes!

Monday got 1/2 hour walk downtown.

Today my walking was combo of a fairly short couple of walks outside (rain, rain go away) and then Wii Fit Adv Step & Free Step.

Great plan Sheenadee! I'm back on the treadmill for 1.5 miles per day starting today. Also I'm hiking with my boys morning and night. Walking really is great. I'm even contemplating mowing the lawn with the push mower instead of riding. . . I'll let you know how that works out.

For August, let's focus on our walking and changing it up a bit. Ideas to consider:

- Maybe get in a little more walking than usual

- If you're usually on a treadmill, try a few outdoor walks around the neighborhood, nearby park or your own yard

- Pick up the pace a bit

- Try some interval walking where you power walk for a few minutes and then slow it down a few, speed up again & so on

- Walk uphill

- Use an elliptical

- Jog

- Use Wii Free Step? Try the Free Run for variety

- Hold dumbbells while walking

- etc.... What else will you do to add some variety?

Post what you're doing and how much you're walking. Enjoy!
