Great way to get DH to join you Stacy! I sometimes do the same and then urge DH to just get a "kiddie cone". I love it when DH is able to walk with me.

+3 today early to avoid the heat. Really behind in miles this month and now we are under heat advisories for a week. I'll just do the best I can.

Yes, I love to have a family member or friend walk with me whenever possible, but unfortunately no one close to me likes to walk as much as I do...with the exception of my oldest daughter. She will go with me whenever her busy schedule permits, and we've really managed to carve the time out together; I appreciate it greatly because she will be going back to college end of August. So I'm trying to work on Husband too! He told me this morning that he didn't want to walk today - thats ok, its nice that he does it on occasion, even if ice cream is the motivator

2.25 miles on the treadmill this afternoon on my lunch hour.

July miles 44.5

Morning round, 3 km, that's 1.8 miles, walked and jogged. Again, after taking a day off yesterday, I did much better and found it easier.

Oh Heather - kayaking today - I'm jealous! I'm thinking about buying a child size kayak for my grand daughter so we can go together. I haven't been in years.

Nemia - a rest day is a very good idea. Let's the muscles recover and repair.

+3 today. Still hot!

Pushed myself to walk 4 miles today to make an even 50 for the month so far. I just can't do more in this heat.

Taking a day off today to spend with DH and we have a family birthday party to go to. I remember when I first started low carb years ago I would be near tears at birthday parties feeling very left out and deprived to miss cake, ice cream, and carby goodies at dinner like fresh rolls and potatoes. Now I don't even perceive that stuff as food anymore and I can totally ignore it. The cravings I get now are always for fruit and I usually squash them by crunching on some celery or eating a few berries. I don't think I will ever be completely free of cravings.

Hello there !

Hi, I hope you don't mind me joining in at this late stage.
I usually walk approximately 3 miles a night with the dog but setting a monthly overall target would give me a push and a goal (plus I have to walk the dog so can not get out off the exercise no matter what the weather LOL!!!)

How do you work out what miles to try to achieve for the month?
(I would presume if I walk an average of 3 miles a day at present that would be 21m a week which would give me a goal of 84miles a month ? And then next month go for more miles added?)

Thanks

Welcome Odo. Sounds like a good plan. I like to walk with my dog too but she is old and can't go far so I take my exercise walk then snap on her leash and do one short block with her. We have a fenced yard so she really doesn't have to go for a walk but she loves it.

I find posting here really does motivate me to walk for exercise as much as I can.

+4 for me today.

Happy Monday! My grandmother is 96 today; I just got back from visiting her.

I walked 6 miles (wow!) early Sunday morning around my neighborhood; the humidity wasn't too bad thank goodness. Not sure that I will be able to sneak in a walk this evening, but will try if given the opportunity! Have a great week ahead!

July miles= 55
