My thoughts exactly!!!! From that comment sounds as if you don't plan to stop at a million LOL. I think it might be good to rename the thread and invite some more folks in... what does everyone think? Maybe we could call it Second Million Step Challenge... Join In!! or ????

Or the Million More March... I love the idea of continuing!

HealthierMe, I had also been thinking about a March Across the US! Great minds think alike, eh? I was thinking perhaps we could follow Route 90, which starts in Boston and ends in San Francisco (I think). At over 3,000 miles, it's the longest continuous highway in the US.

As we pass through each major city, people from that area could fill us in on what's going on there!

Then we could March across Europe, Asia, Africa... Not sure how we could get to some of the island places (ooo marching along the beaches of Bermuda!), but I'm sure we could figure it out!

In any event, I think it's a great idea to get more folks involved! We can March Around the World!

Million More March is good as we could keep it later... and just put a number after it!!

I like the March across the US too... and having someone from each area fill us in and be "honored" as we go through their area! That is a fantastic idea!!!! I would be in!!! LOL if we start on the East Coast it would take me a LONG time to get home but that is fine... I would be skinny minny by then!!!

Anyone talented at mapping out the route?? Go for it!!

Bleh, Lydia's not here yet! Guess I'll have to check back later.

Did my workout during AI last night. Did about 40 minutes strength during hour 1, then hopped on the treaddy for hour 2. I fugured I'd pump up my steps numbers by doing a solid hour.

Mistake!

One solid hour is just a bit too much with no break. My legs were JELLO after! . Next time, I take a break somewhere in there!

Oh well, my number for yesterday was 10,891 (total = 233,732).

Not as good yesterday as I'd hoped. 8878 steps for a total of 153461 for the month.

Hoping for a better day today.....

Hey, I looked up the distance from Boston to Seattle on Mapquest! It is 3,082 miles!! That is a little closer than San Francisco and I am prejudiced LOL. Does anyone on here LIVE in or near any EAST Coast cities? It would be good to start and stop where someone actually lives, don't you think?

I think we should try it LOL

You know it, babe!

First off, you girls are completely rediculous when it comes to waking up early. I don't roll out of bed until at LEAST 7:40, more often after 8:30 Once I get curtains for my window, I'll probably be sleeping until 9 or 10

But anyway, on to my steps! Yesterday, between an hour and a half of yardwork, shopping for 3 hours, and helping to move a few boxes from the apartment to the house... I clocked in at 9,174 steps, bringing my total up to 115,451. I told you I was playing with the big girls now I'll catch you! *puffs*

But seriously, I'm very satisfied with yesterday's total. Yesterday was... rough. I know it sounds all fine and good, but I barely ate or drank anything all day and felt HORRIBLE. I got such a bad migraine that I didn't get to sleep until midnight. That blister I got on Saturday? It popped yesterday while I was out shopping. Nothing worse than feeling a gush between your toes and realizing it's body juice (for lack of a better word ). That was at around 3pm, and I'd only accumulated about 4,000 steps by then. So I did 5,000 additional steps on an injured foot. I'm definitely proud of myself.

It was my mistake. My Excel program somehow changed my 9211 to 9511. I fixed it!

Thanks for letting me know!

And here I thought getting back to work was good for my walking! I haven't hit 10000 since Monday!

Yesterday (Wed) it was 9854 steps for a new total of 163315.

Happy Thursday!
