New thread for the month. :)

I walked for about 2 hours around a huge Christmas bazaar and the grocery store today. Just as well since it is so cold out today that I did not want to walk outside.

This month I am challenging myself to take the stairs at work, starting with 2 flights next week and adding 2 flights on each week.

Tue: 1 mile on treadmill (this is boring, I'd much rather walk the dog.)
Wed: 24 laps swimming

I almost didn't go to the gym today. I normally get off work at 4:30 and head straight there. I didn't end up leaving work until 5:15 and then there was more traffic. I was so tempted to skip it. I'm not sure what made me go, partially I think having to be accountable here and on the exercise challenge.

I did a 2 hour walk with lots of jogging tossed in for good measure yesterday and I only did 50 minutes today. I'd have done longer but I wasn't dressed properly for being outside in this FREEZING city! :shocksn:

Sunday: worked up a sweat while putting up the tree and setting up the Christmas lights on the front porch. Then did some yardwork since it was so mild out.

Also went for a short 20 minute walk. :)

Ok - I have done exercise this week.

Mon: 26 laps
Tue: 2 miles on treadmill
Wed: 0 - Was so tired went home from work and took a nap.
Thurs: 26 laps

I am still really enjoying swimming. My goal is to slowly work up to 32 laps which would be 800 meters. The walking on the treadmill is just borrrrring. I'm going to try to stick it out for Dec. and then start weights or something in Jan.
