Great job, ladies!

I'm done with the 10,000 steps and there is still some light outside

I started walking on July 8th and have already walked over 62 miles this month, which adds up to over 100 kilometers. Woohooo! Never thought I could do it!

Hi, I put my fitbit on at 1 yesterday and ended up walking 2158 steps. Wow. That's a lot considering I did no dedicated walking and was sitting having my mini makeover for 2 hours during the day. I have it on today so I'm going see what a normal day looks like. I didn't do the sleep thing with it yet cause I didn't know how. I read about it earlier and will try it tonight. I don't sleep well too often so it should be interesting.

Over 11000 steps so far.

Chewi I have the pedometer. So I can't track sleep. What about the rest of you? I wear mine to bed so every step counts!!

Eliza, Paula how are you doing?

Karen get those batteries put in

Have a bad sinus headache today and am barely dragging. Low step count but will keep pushing.

Paula, you look wonderful in your new avatar pic.

Cheryl, you are one busy bee. Wow!

Chewie, how is your Zip day going?

Only got 1717 yesterday. Guess it was a lazy day. I did use the sleep tracker last night. Interesting--said I slept 7.5 hours but had 12X or 25 minutes restless and 1 minute awake--guess when I went to the bathroom. lol I have the thing charging today so I don't have it on. I hope/plan to start dedicated walking tomorrow so I'll be getting my numbers higher.

Hi everyone, hope everyone is doing well.

I walked an hour on the treadmill and then some around the house and am at 9,621 steps right now. Should easily reach 10,000 by the end of the day.

Chews, you can do it, you skinny girl!

Mayo Clinic recommendations for proper walking posture. I know I'm definitely lacking in the tightened stomach muscles area...
Quote:
*** Your head is up. ***You're looking forward, not at the ground. *** Your neck, shoulders and back are relaxed, not stiffly upright. ***You're swinging your arms freely with a slight bend in your elbows. A little pumping with your arms is OK. ***Your stomach muscles are slightly tightened and your back is straight, not arched forward or backward. *** You're walking smoothly, rolling your foot from heel to toe.
And this is from the American Heart Association:
Quote:
The Benefits of Walking
Walking Toward a Healthier You

There are countless physical activities out there, but walking has the lowest dropout rate of them all! It's the simplest positive change you can make to effectively improve your heart health.

Research has shown that the benefits of walking and moderate physical activity for at least 30 minutes a day can help you:

Reduce the risk of coronary heart disease
Improve blood pressure and blood sugar levels
Improve blood lipid profile
Maintain body weight and lower the risk of obesity
Enhance mental well being
Reduce the risk of osteoporosis
Reduce the risk of breast and colon cancer
Reduce the risk of non-insulin dependent (type 2) diabetes

There really are so many benefits for such a simple activity!

Jan--only certain fit bits track sleep. I got fitbit one for only 76 at Amazon.

Unfortunately, I also got tom and not up to doing much of anything today. I did some laundry and cooking and took a nap. Haven't had it since March, was actually hoping it was done for good.
