Hi Val and Heather. Let's make 2014 a great year!

My January goal is 100 miles. I did 3 this morning.

Heheher 01-01-2014 10:51 AM

Welcome val!

I did 3 miles today. STill coughing. :(

ValR 01-01-2014 02:09 PM

I was able to get six miles in today.

I'm going to bump my goal up to 150 miles because I need to be more active.

Heheher 01-02-2014 08:36 AM

1.5 miles this morning. Planning to do more later.

January miles walked. 4.5

+4 today. Got it in before the snowstorm hits this afternoon. Very cold but OK once I got moving!

ValR 01-02-2014 02:04 PM

Two miles done this morning and a few more planned for this evening.

Five more miles done. I'm an avid reader and like to read while I walk. It's easy to get a lot of steps in when you are caught up in a good book.

Heheher 01-03-2014 10:40 AM

Good idea on the reading Val. I don't think I'm coordinated enough for that lol but do really well with music playing.
Great job Heather!
We are doing good establishing a nice, regular pattern!

Freezing here and 5 inches of snow so I did 3 miles indoors today.

+3 indoors. The streets in my development are too icy to walk on.

ValR 01-04-2014 04:58 PM

6 miles today

shunsweets 01-05-2014 05:20 AM

+3 this morning. Hope to take the dogs out after work if the roads are clear to add another mile. We will see. Right now they are still a sheet of ice.

ValR 01-05-2014 08:21 AM

4 miles completed this am. It's ridiculously cold in the Midwest and I'm craving sunshine and warm temps.

Nelle Belle 01-05-2014 11:59 AM

Found you!
2 miles on TM

Heheher 01-05-2014 06:29 PM

Welcome, Nelle Belle!

Sunday is rest day for me.

Melodye 01-06-2014 04:22 AM

I started walking Saturday and decided I will walk everyday. I am starting for 30 minutes everyday and will add more minutes as my body adjust to walking. I did mile and half in 30 minutes both saturday and Sunday on the treadmill at the YMCA.

shunsweets 01-06-2014 05:09 AM

Hi Nelle Belle. Welcome Melodye!

+3 indoors for me this morning. Pouring rain here and those crazy below zero temps come in tonight!

ValR 01-06-2014 05:39 AM

Nice to have you join in, Melodye.

Three miles done this morning with Leslie Sansone. Normally I love her videos but this one doesn't do anything for me and I couldn't finish it. I just bought it and hope that maybe the dislike will pass if I try it a few more times.

Heheher 01-06-2014 09:16 AM

5 miles inside with Leslie. -4 here when I woke up.
Welcome, Melodye!

EmmTee 01-06-2014 12:06 PM

Hope it's okay to jump in here. Today is day one of starting over again on low carb. Strayed a lot over the holidays. Not sure if I should start exercising right away or let myself get used to low carb food again first. Too late to change my mind as I did 3 miles on the TM today. Hope to get in 70 miles by the end of January. Looking forward to getting to know you all :)

shunsweets 01-06-2014 12:43 PM

Welcome Emmtee! I think it is great to start walking right away. Good job on the 3 miles on the TM.
Val and Heather - I have several of Leslie's videos. I seem to go in spurts with her then need a break but I'm sure I will be breaking them out before this long winter is over. I really prefer to walk outside but mother nature sure makes that a challenge many days.

Everything that keeps us walking is good!

ValR 01-06-2014 07:01 PM

Nice to meet you, Emmtee.

I'm already bored with walking videos and there are months of winter left. It was -19 this morning when I let for work and it felt like a heat wave when it got to -14 this afternoon.

Heheher 01-06-2014 09:11 PM

Welcome EmmTee. The more the merrier.

Heheher 01-07-2014 09:14 AM

plus 3

shunsweets 01-07-2014 10:18 AM

Did 1 mile (actually it's about 1 1/4 around the block but with the dogs I count it as only 1) with the 2 dogs after work last night. Quite a challenge with the wind but it was still above freezing at that time.

+3 indoors this morning. Now it is below zero so no outdoor walking today! The dogs are curled up in their heated beds and won't want to move I'm sure lol.

Wonder if we burn more calories in this cold weather? My weight and bgs are holding stable right now.

EmmTee 01-07-2014 10:22 AM

Thank you all for the warm welcome :)

It's freezing here too (MA) - about -10 F with the wind chill. No outdoor walking for me for a while.

Did manage to do 3 1/2 miles on the TM this morning.

Happy Walking Everyone!

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 12:57 AM.
