As soon as DD and I get back from running a couple of errands, we are going for a 3 mile walk and after-wards, I *might* join her on a Turbo Jam session...We'll see, but the walking for sure!!

Have a nice weekend All...

Thanks once again for the new thread Lynn! What would we do without you!

+5 for me to start the new month and I raised my goal a little. Seems every time I try to raise it I have a bad month so maybe I can get by that obstacle this month. I know the hot weather is here and I don't do well in the heat. I'm a delicate little flower!

Hi Anna. Glad you found us!

Oh Rebecca - I could use your help at my house. I need some of that major spring cleaning here too. Glad you are joining us. I can't run much anymore as it hurts my knees but either running or walking it's great for fitness.

Paula you made your goal! And off to a great start this month!

Hi Deosil. I may have to switch to after dinner walks for a few days too. This heat wave makes after work walks tough. Either way we will have a great month.

Hi Heather. Here we go for another month. By the way I love your avi picture. You are beautiful and slim.

So after all this chatting one little mile for me this morning lol. Just too disorganized to get it in this morning. Will do better tomorrow .

I am joining properly this month, and hope to use the striiv app on my iPod to count miles walked throughout the day.

Today, however, I did walk a fair way, but forgot to turn the app on. D'oh!

Hi whistle. Glad you are with us.

Rebecca - wow you are doing tons of household tasks. We restained our bathroom vanity today. It came out beautiful, a big improvement. Now I need to start gradually painting rooms. It's been 10 years since we did any painting and everything needs freshening up. May have to get someone in to help as DH can't do that stuff any more since his heart surgery but for today I am happy with the project we completed.

Hi Wicked - good for you with the treadmill. A fresh start is always good.

Ugh, still nursing the ankle and knee injuries. I did fairly well in May, all things considered. Hoping for a better month in June. I moved for a total of 3 mi. yesterday while I bushwhacked. Does that count? I'm so sore today I can barely move.

Well Lynn I just googled to find out that 1 mile of swimming is about equivalent to 3 miles of jogging or 4 miles (depending a lot on technique, swimming ability and such) of running so that 1 mile of swimming is doing you heaps of good and it uses lots more muscles and is easy on the joints so good for you!

Morning all..

DD is home for the next two days ( exempt from final exams), so she and I will either do a 3 mile walk and a round of her beloved Turbo Jam, or a 4 mile walk and then some Kettle Bells later on..

Either way, we will be up and moving

Have a great day

Shunsweets,

Thanks for the info on swimming.. I was trying to see how many calories I burned... I will say my body does feel good..but the cramps in my legs at night...The (dial) soap under the sheets does help... anyone with leg cramps should try it...

Hope everyone has a good day,
Lynn
