I think my goal will be to walk 6 days per week! I will still be on maternity leave for most of the month of may. Once I start back to work I might have to revise.

Well, since I can't do any kind of pound loss challenge (due to the "no weighing" thing...), I think counting minutes might be just the thing to get me more motivated! Thanks, chicks! :grouphug:
