We've had 4 days of rain/wind/storms. I'm going to be so spoiled when I can actually walk outside! Hopefully tomorrow. I have really had to struggle to get those 10K steps a day lately.

'Wish I could find the food part of this journey as easy to do, as the walk/jog.

Tomorrow may be the first day of spring but it's still wintry here. I would love to walk outside but it's too damp and cold so I'm still stuck inside walking.

How do y'all get so many miles in one day?? 20 miles?!? Are y'all counting all of your steps in a day or only the steps while actually working out?

I use a FitBit which measures the steps to figure the miles according to my height and also the Map My Walk app which uses GPS. Map My Walk usually gives me more mileage than my Fitbit, but I use the lower number of the two for my daily spreadsheet. I think my strides are longer than average for my height.

Edited to add: I just looked back over my 3 month spreadsheet and the best miles I have had in one day is 13.44. I usually average 4-5 on a normal day. i use the whole day in my figures. Unfortunately, FitBit doesn't pick up steps if you are pushing a cart and sometimes when you are carrying something so when I do a massive amount of walking/yard work it doesn't always register.

Great job everyone!

I have a fitbit and can easily get 15000+ steps from daily activities. I only log the miles I intentionally walk for exercise.

Wow, Val that is a bunch for just daily activities. The most I ever got on a day that I didn't exercise was around 4,000 steps.

03/19: Official exercise miles 5+; Total miles for the day: 6.14

I also only count what I do for intentional exercise. Otherwise I think I'd tend to be lazy. Lol. Plus 3 today.

I like this challenge because I have to purposefully walk if I want to meet my goal.

+2 and best of all it was outside!!! The sunshine on my face was wonderful.

I only count exercise walking as well.
+2 today. Started a new case today that requires much longer hours two days a week so only got in the after work walk. I'm so tired! Hope I will gradually get used to this.

With all of these miles, has anyone had some weight loss?


I did weights today and 1 mile so far.

I don't count steps, I walk out doors, I walk to work and back 4.7miles, then when I get home, depending on how I feel, I could do that route once or twice again in the evening.
Walking totally energises me.
I do 9.4miles 7 days a week....I would say I have only missed maybe 4 days this year.

On weekends I sometimes try to do it 3 or 4 times.
I love it and its totally effortless for me.

I have lost 80lbs in 8mths but if I count the lbs I keep gaining and losing because my eating is rubbish, it would be about 120lbs.

Ican- I think it's awesome you're so dedicated to walking to work. I would be a wimp if the weather conditions weren't perfect.

+4.7 morning
+9.4 evening

ValR, I am filled with gratitude every day, knowing that I love walking, and find it a breeze. If its raining I wear a mac, and rain shoes and head out. I have my heels in a tote bag I carry with my other stuff..I just realised that rain does not even matter.

On the contrary, I wish I could get my eating in line.....I lament my inability to stick faithfully to my healthy eating plan.

Ican- I love walking, too. Unfortunately, I love food even more and also have a hard time portion control and it undoes all my walking.

+3 this morning. Count me as another who loves walking and finds it excellent stress relief.

I'm pretty good with diet too but I have no choice as I am diabetic.
