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.

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.

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.

+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.

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

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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!
