I have had to take it slow due to the foot injury. I DO NOT WANT TO HURRY THE HEALING. Today I got 10000 for the first time in 17 days. Woo hoo. I got it up to 8000 this week and decided to try the 10000. Had a few sharp pains but it appe... Read more

Many of you know about my feet being a real problem to me this week. Well, they've been a problem for 10 years. I don't know if it's plantar fastitis or some other tendon problem. I can't afford a foot doctor etc. I have had significant prob... Read more

Got my husband to Walk with ME!!!

It's like pulling teeth, but I begged and got my DH to actually walk with me. A few weeks ago, he went twice. Then it got too warm again (100o at 6 pm) so he had an excuse. Well, it was around 80o and I knew it was suppose to be, so I got him... Read more

I'm trying harder not to go over my calorie range, and I've gotten in 2 miles every day, plus elliptical 4 days a week. Love the pedometer. It was hard to get 10000 steps a day, and that is what made me walk the 2 miles. Easy now and I usuall... Read more

The 5% Challenge made me exercise more today.
Saturday, October 06, 2012      7 comments

I haven't done as much in one day in a very long time. Just knowing that we record our exercise minutes to help our fellow teammates gave me the extra push to try for a little longer than the 30 on the elliptical. I walked 2 miles too. I'm ho... Read more

Getting 10,000 steps a day is getting easier!!
Sunday, September 30, 2012      7 comments

At first I thought it would be easy to get 10,000 steps a day. That btw is about 5 miles. I over estimated the amount you step in a day when you do housework and go to the store etc. I am now pushing myself. Because it was well over 100o, an... Read more
