I walked a little today on the tread mill it is to hot outside so maybe I will walk more when it cools down tonight for a while.
I am going to try to walk at least 5 miles this week.
I know that is not alot but it is managable.
I am going to try to get my friend to go with me in the morning.

I'll join as well. My kids have been bugging me to go to the park. I can start by walking the mile jogging track there. I have not moved in years. Maybe we can keep each other inspirated.

Default I will join you

I would like to join. I walk my two dogs every day and I try to go at lunch. I walk the dogs before work and in the evening. Sometimes on the weekend I will only walk once. Today my friend and I had a nice walk at lunch. I don't know how far we went but it was so nice down by the river. Look forward to getting to know you guys better.

We also have another thread going.It is the 30 day challenge.You two are welcome to join us if you would like.
I have a park by my house that has a exercise trail too.Once in a while I go on it right now the bridge that goes over it under construction.
Do you guys keep track of how far or long you walk.I just bought a pedometer so that I don't have to guess.

Hi. I'm Lynn from MA. I started walking at the end of April. I started walking around my block, about .5 miles in 20 minutes. Within a couple of weeks was doing 1 mile in about the same time. Now, as long as the weather is cool in the a.m. I do 1.5 miles in about 25 minutes.(I'm 5.9inches..and walk rather fast) Then, in the evening I drive to my husbands work, and walk back. I'ts 2.5 miles. I do that between 45-55 minutes depending on lights etc. Since I've started walking (along with the Points system from WW I've lost 25.6 pounds) I hope to get my 10% next Wednesday which is also my birthday!!! I don't like exercise but don't see walking as that. I must have been a Ferengi in a past life...I have stuck with the walking for the profit....I find money every day!!!! Most I've found is 3dollars....least on any given day...2 cents...think someone is telling me something.

I plan on taking my nephew for a long walk in the morning.
I would have liked to get more walking in this week than I did but at least I did some.I am going to try to go at least 2 miles tomorrow.
Keep walking.

Hi everyone. I really MEANT to start walkingthe other day. It has been sohot, I have not been able to drag myself out. Today ismy son's birthday, so I promised him that tomorrow we will get up early and go to the park as I just got home from work. I am thinking I need to tell my kids to beg and not give up until I take them. I am glad to see everyone else is doing good. I'll be back to give an update and see how everyone is doing.
