Angie took a nice 3.5 mile walk around the neighborhood this morning. It was sunny and 55 degrees. Skipped the walk to the coffee shop and visited with the neighbors out this morning.

Going to be way short of my shortened goal I'm afraid due to travel miles each day....wish I could add those 150 daily miles to my total!!

Thanks for the encouragement EZMONEY! the 5K walk/run sounds like a great goal...ok maybe next year! as it is - i can barely walk without calling 911! i DID make the one song goal, and i did it twice the next day. But i took a 2 hour break in between. i was at work! So i made it to one four minnute song, then i worked 2 hours, then i walked another 4 minute song.

Cakses- very impressive for someone trying to get back in the saddle! 2.75 mi is alot girl!

zeta- it IS rough when you take the weekend off- but what if you took several years off? You are doing great!

wow everyone! go fluffy! go zeta!

ezmoney are you running 2.5? that is a gteat feat.

cakses-very inspiring!

I am still just going 4 minutes at a time. I just walk once a day to say I did it, but I am happy to do that right now. It is still hard to breathe but I did lose 13 pounds in 2 weeks and it makes me feel like it is a little easier now!!! Eating less on "calorie counters" thread is helping me lose so that I can excercise someday soon!

12-26-2008, 06:42 PM
Keep up the minutes Jennifer!

Angie and I got out for a 2.5 mile walk with the mutts this afternoon
