Default To Grandmother's house we go (exercise challenge)

Ok ladies, I know we have tried to do an exercise accountablility and it keeps falling off because we don't follow through or at least I don't. I need the accountability.
I am going to do a weekly challenge with two weekly winner. One winner for total miles and one for total time not counting your time for walking as that effort is counted in miles. If you want to participate, let me know. Open to everyone. I will count the miles you walk per week (to get you to grandma's house) or the amount of time you spent working out to a video or any other type of exercise you do. I will keep up with it if you PM your miles and/or time to me by midnight on Saturday (not including Nov. 10th- Start emailing rusults Nov. 17th). This way I can figure the results on Sunday when I am off and start a new thread with the previous weeks results and I won't have to search through the thread if you send me a total.

If this is already being done somewhere under the LAWL threads, let me know, I don't need to reinvent the wheel.

Anyone game to see how many miles we can walk to get to grandmother's house???

Default Count me in

Sure count me in. I had been great about walking everyday but I just returned to school and have slipped off. I need the kick to get me moving.
Exercise today:
1 hour gentle yoga. 15 min walk. 1 nap! (counts for something!)

I'll join in. Hopefully my grandma's house isn't too far, as I don't walk but 15 minutes before work each weekday (sometimes another 15 minutes on the recumbent bike at work). At least it's something, I guess...

Stephanie, That is great. Any amount works! I wish I could say that is all I do! Right now I am not doing anything. So I am going to have to go get on the treadmill when a good movie or a good football game comes on.

Yeah, I am excited. That is 3 of us!

Where are you Kimberly??? I know you want to do this too.

Count me in too. I have slacked off some because the weather here in the northwest has gotten chillier and wetter. I had been religiously swimming three miles a week when my apartment pool was open this summer but 'not so much' now, even though I do have a lovely pool to swim in, but I drive there and somehow although I mean to go, stuff seems to get in the way.

I walked 45 minutes today to a "walk away the pounds" DVD.

Thanks for doing this.

My arms and I are in as the cheerleader.

I'm still trying to squeeze in workouts 3-4 afternoons a week, but seeing that I'm constantly moving 300 pound racks all day at work, I'm not as religious as I am during the warmer non-xmas season month. Plus, I have a parade to march in 11 days, my body has to be ready for that stamina. Especially since I'm on a balloon with no vehicle, talk about an amazing resistance workout.

Ooh, I should join in, as my walking challenge from work is almost done (just about to go and walk my last 3 miles and I will have in the 50 miles).

So yesterday I did 1 hour spin cycling class and 30 minutes of toning and weights

Yeah, I am excited to see all you ladies here.

Barbara, 50 miles! WOW! That is awesome. I also see you are where I started and are where I would love to be. How long did it take you to get to 160? I feel like I can't get out of the 180s. I am going to follow the menu she gave me Saturday and if I don't lose this week. I am going to have a tantrum!!!

Megan, are you going to be in the Macey's parade??? If so what balloon are your going to be on. We will have to watch for you! How fun is that??? WOW.

Later

All 4 of my grandparents have passed.
I would have needed to walk 1500-1800 miles.
I would love to join you in this endevour.
Kim, I need to know more about plan 4 as I am training for a marathon and do super amounts of exercise. I ran out of weight loss weeks a few days ago. Can you send me the exchange amounts?

Hi... Yea! Got my 50 miles in! So happy. So that was 45 minutes yesterday, and got out of bed and went to spin cycling class this morning for another hour of cardio (substitute instructor was killer). Also managed about 10 minutes of toning before class... So far since Saturday that makes 205 minutes....

I'll play too! I am also struggling since the weather has changed. I am doing a 1/2 marathon on Super Bowl Sunday in Huntington Beach so no time for slacking!

amy2liz30 - Which marathon are you training for? Is this your first? I have done 3 fulls and 3 1/2's now. I have decided I'm a 1/2 marathon girl from here on out. I am actually coaching for the American Stroke Association and it doesn't leave much time to train myself! Anxious to hear what you are doing...
