week one:

Monday; 1 mile- 30 min or 2000 steps

I might be interested. I don't have the book, but have 3 of her dvd's. Could you post the first week's workouts to help me decide? I'm already doing 2 challenges, but another one might be a good idea.

I wanted to be at 200 by Labour Day, but if my scale is right I'm only 2 pounds away, so my new goal would be to hit 190 by Canadian Thanksgiving (second Monday in October, I think).

I started on Monday, August 1. If it's OK, I'd still like to join you! My goal is to lose 10 pounds by Labor Day, which would be 5.5 weeks from when I started.

Red face Watp???

Hello, I just joined the forum and I'm very much interested in joining the challenge; any challenge as long as the outcome is weightloss and energy. I just have one quick question, I know that may sound dumb but what does 'WATP' mean??

I would love to join as well. I started using the tapes a couple of days ago. I am also doing WW core plan. My WI day is tomorrow, but I think that I have lost 4-5 lbs. I would love the motivation of the group to keep me going. Can we do more than the 1 mile, like the whole tape 3. I haven't been able to do the whole tape, but I try to do at least 25 min--a little less than 2 miles.

I just finished the 2 mile WATP with 3 pound weights. I've been walking for awhile, so I'm doing more than suggested.

Happy walking, everyone!

I'm not sure how many miles we did, but we walked at a heart raising rate for 35 minutes tonight! 1/2 of it I was pushing the stroller too!

Can't wait to start to see the results!

Hope everyone else got day 1 done!

I just did the Power Mile with 3 pound weights! Have lots of errands today, so that may be all. But, if I have time when we get back, I'll pop in another 1 mile tape or get on the treadmill for at least a mile.

Happy walking!

Michele

Nice job, babyblue!

I just did the 2 mile Walk Strong Express with the stretchie! I haven't done that one in awhile and my muscles are complaining a bit. 7 miles done this week!

I ended up with 3.44 miles yesterday. In addition to Walk Strong, I did 1.44 miles on the treadmill in 30 minutes.

Today, I did the 1 mile WATP book DVD, the WATP original with 3 pound weights, and .58 mile on the treadmill.

Not sure if I'll get any more done today. We have school registration and hubby is on a business trip. Either way, I'm ahead for the week!

Keep walking!

Michele
