A new thread will be great for people with slower connections. Let's think of it as a second leg of our journey.

No miles to report today but I've been so busy at school with 2 days of play day. The weather was great for it, and I sure did get a workout not to mention loads of fun.

Thanks all for you sweet encouragement as I've entered 1derland. I felt it coming and the scale this morning proved me right.

I will won't be able to walk this weekend either as I have zillion things to do to get ready for my niece's visit and the cruise!! But I have my pedometer in my pocket!!! But so far my morning's housecleaning has only netted me about 2500 steps! But I DO still have to go to Walmart and the grocery store and do lots more cleaning so it won't be a lazy day, that's for sure!!

Below are my miles for the past week. I was happy that I was able to take a walk 6 out of 7 days this week (even if it was for a short walk). We've been having some beautiful weather here so I've been taking more evening walks (I was surprised how big the moon looked last night).

To the moms out there... Wishing you a happy and relaxing Mother's Day!

Date: 5/7, Miles: 1.77

Date: 5/8, Miles: 1.44

5/13
Miles: 6.7
TOTAL: 288.3

Had really good day yesterday. I popped in a book on CD and took off on my treadmill for 40 minutes (2.2 miles). Then, later I did the Power Mile (WATP) with 3 pound weights. We decided to go out to dinner last night instead of fighting the crowds today, so I got more steps in at the restaurant and a couple of stores. Grand total was more than 13000!

Have to go back to town today because we didn't find all of DD's softball stuff and practice starts tomorrow. Will go to Play It Again Sports and possibly John Wilson Sports and hope we find everything.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Michele

Not feeling too great today (tummy is acting up), but I'll be sure to get my 2 miles in! Gotta keep my streak going.

I hope all the mothers in this game have a great mother's day

Where is everyone????

I had a nice Mother's Day. DD and I went shopping and found what she needed (not cheap, though!). Then we came home and had supper and--uh-oh--ice cream! I didn't eat lunch, so I only went over my calories a little.

The kids each got me a new CD. DD got me Faith Hill's Fireflies, which I asked for. DS got me the new Barry Gibb/Barbra Streisand one. I asked for and received 2 other Barbra CD's for Christmas, so it was a good choice. BUT, it has to be exchanged as it has a huge scratch on it, causing 2 songs to skip.

Anyway, I only did 15 minutes of fitness walking, which wasn't even a mile. But at least I did something!

I've already done a 1 mile WATP this morning with 3 pound weights, so I'm on my way for today!

Have a great Monday!

Michele

Question for any of you. When you are posting your miles, are you counting ALL steps/miles for the whole day, or are you only counting steps/miles you've put in for exercise?

I'll start tracking my miles today, just wasn't sure exactly what to track!

Have a good day everyone.

Hi DJ

Some of us do it each way. My pedometer goes in my pocket when I get ready for work and stays there, and I count ALL steps. Hey I walk 'em I want 'em, and I get a lot of steps in at work and like this weekend, just housecleaning. But I think some only count when they actually go for "walks." You can do it either way you want! (Some here don't have pedometers, so that makes it harder to keep track of all their daily steps.

Happy walking!
