Absolutely, Deb! How about you? What are your plans for August?

I go back to work on August 19 so I'm evaluating my schedule to make sure I get my movement in when work starts. I leave the house at 6:45 am and return around 4:30 if I don't have any after school meetings. So I guess I need to start getting up at 4:30ish am and walk on my treadmill to get at least 3500 - 4000 steps in before I leave for work.

July 31st- I got in 2 jump rope workouts today. One was Tabata style for 10 minutes the other was basic jump roping 20 mins worth.

Thanks to Deb who started this thread and for everyone who participated. I do credit this thread for helping me be as active as I was the month of July. There's just something about the 'I have to post and share what i did today' that just makes you want to get up and move!

What's an rx class Deb?

My refrigerator pooped out on Monday and last night the TV in the family room blew. SHEESH! I will start walking with the grandkids 3 days a week and I really am going to go next week and join a gym. Finding time is my problem!

Everybody doing "something" today?

Went to the gym this morning did a little extra time because it's raining today so won't be walking with the group.

Eliza wow wtg you rocking it. Do you keep your pedometer on all day. I walk alot and don't even realize it, so getting a new one to keep track. Mine quit.

Sooz I've been walking with a bunch of friends, we do it all summer. You'll have fun with grands. they'll probably have you sprinting.

I started strict LC on July 5th, and my walking program on July 8th. Since then, I have lost 12.2 lbs. And built muscle. Tasks are so much easier now....from walking to doing housework, to simple movement. I totally ascribe the lbs lost to my walking program, because I have done strict LC with no exercise before, and didn't come nearly as close in the WL department as I have done since exercising.

Thanks Misty and Deb You're very sweet.

Misty, I wear a FitBit, but any pedometer works....I read the research and there were so many positive health changes associated with walking 10,000 steps a day, I decided to stick it out and do it. I used to average 3,800 before. Now I push myself. 10,000 steps for me equal about 4.5 miles (about 2250 steps per mile). Figured that would be a good number of miles to walk daily.

Trust me, it's not easy for a 300ish-lb. woman to walk 4.5 miles, but I've made the decision and, as a matter of fact, it's getting easier every day as my fitness level goes up.

I would encourage you to wear the pedometer and see, counting steps is fun.

Sign me up! I really need to be held accountable for diet/exercise, so today, I'm going to get a pedometer and get busy stepping. I hate to sweat, and it will take a little while for me to enjoy moving again, but I've got to do something to raise my metabolism! Just got back on the LC wagon and am trying to get excited about this! Give me a few days, and I'll be feeling like I'm on top of the world! (I hope!)

Made 5 days at the gym, and lake walking. No gym on the weekends, so got my morning walk in and then going again today. If it warms up I'd like to get some swimming in.

Eliza going to get a new pedometer this week. Can't wait to see how much I walk in a day. 10,000 steps sounds like so much But I know when I walk to the firehouse it's 2 miles from my door. But I don't walk back because it's all uphill and my dog is getting to old to do that anymore.

Hester

Sooz yes we just do something, most of use are doing walking.

Karen do you use a pedometer? I bet with all the running around you doing, you's be surprised at how far you really walk.

10,000 steps completed, and since it's only 5:30ish, I'll probably end up with 11K or more today

Misty, let us know if you got a new pedometer and how your walking is going.

Hope everyone is having a fantastic day

Hope. You feel better soon.

I had dizzy going on but I think trip to chiropractor may have solved that....

Tough to do much. When you aren't feeling well.

Hi Cheryl! Did you have a nice relaxing vacation? Congratulations on your 50 mile badge!

You know, I thought they went in 50 mile increments. I was waiting to get a 100 mile badge and when I didn't after I exceeded 100 miles, I was even planning on emailing their customer service. After some research, I found out the next higher badge is for 250 miles So it will be a while longer before that happens.
