So thankful for the opportunity to walk all over Angel Island in the San Fransisco Bay. Perfect weather, beautiful views, captivating plant life, multiple physical challenges to keep one alert and focused made the day memorable. Met people from all over the country. Great place to experience California and national history. We are blessed to have so many great places to walk in CA and enjoy the opportunity to exercise.

In the past, I would sit with Dad in his apartment and watch TV while his laundry was in the washer/dryer. Now, I walk the grounds of the complex while his clothes are being laundered and then visit with him while I'm folding and putting his laundered clothing away.

Had a lovely walk around downtown Burlingame in Northern California yesterday while waiting for my car to be serviced. Everything looked so festive! It's the first time in ages that I've walked for fitness. I'm sore today, but in a good way. Hope to make this a regular habit again!

I walked 3 miles yesterday at a nearby regional park...I love walking on dirt instead of concrete. Yesterday's walk was very hilly in sections. I am taking a stab at a 6 mile flat hike tomorrow. Love our weather!

Got in 4 miles today so far, planning to add 1 more this evening. Planning to work up to 6 miles over the next 3 weeks.

I welcomed the lower temps ....As a matter of fact I parked my car further away for an appointment. It was a 13 minute walk but it certainly had the benefits. I felt peppier and encourage you give it a try also. Lot's to see when your emoticon

I walked and hiked over 9 miles yesterday, but that was very unusual and very unplanned. I usually get my steps in either doing free step on the Wii Fit Plus or another Wii activity, or I walk my dog around my neighborhood, or I walk or run up and down my long steep driveway or around my neighborhood.

I also have a sedentary job. How I get in extra steps is getting up every hr from behind my desk and walking to the clinic side and down the hall and then reverse.

I also get it a go to walk 30 minutes during lunch hour but it is a leisure pace so sure isn't cardio.

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

Don't look back, you're not going that way

I have a horribly sedentary job, but I always wear shoes that are comfortable for walking.

One little trick that helps me is getting up from my desk at work once per hour and making a loop through my office. It only takes 2-3 minutes, I run down and up a couple of flights of stairs to get my heart pumping. My loop is about 350 steps. When I do that 7-8 times a day I easily add another mile to my steps.

Let's walk!

Walking improves our confidence..makes you feel better...As Sp member MMMARTY tells us..

Challenge - how do you make time or opportunities to walk?
Lets face it some of us are busy with jobs - small children - bad weather.
There are many excuse we can give - but once again a reality check is needed - walking is good for us - we know that - this is why we are members of this Team. Am I not correct in this assumption?

So where do you walk?
Do you park at the far end of the parking lot?
Do you go out for a walk during a break at work?
Do you walk in the malls?
Do you get off public transportation to walk the final leg of your journey ?
What are you doing to get your 10,000 steps in per day ?
