I posted that it was time for a change and I started. Some of you know and some don't, about us. Our world to a dramatic change and came to a screeching stop. As a result, I have spent the last 10 mo either sitting or working. Until recently, I've been ok with myself. My weight only fluctuated +/- 2 pounds for the last 10+years. Doctor said that was better than yo-yo dieting. Over weight, but not unhealthy. Now, just unhappy. Hubs is on a high protein, high calorie diet, and guess what I eat, on top of no physical activity.
So to keep myself accountable to myself, I walked 4 miles yesterday, and today. I'm going to walk this 4 days a week (I work the other 3), in the evenings. I am also going to start walking 4 days a week with my neighbor in the mornings when she takes her son to school.
Good for you and your walking!... - Twinklelashes

Thank you. I found a pedometer app for my iPhone, and it was free. The walk to the school is 1.6 miles round trip. Adding in the evening walk, it is 5.6 miles for the day. Not bad to start, I think. Muscles a little tight, but not painful. Not sure about weigh in days. I've never owned a scale, and always have gone by how I feel. I guess I could weigh myself at work on Sundays. - Sugarbuzz

Weighing in isn't required here. Whatever works for you is fine. We're all just here to support each other - vernswifevickie 374.1 #378 6:54PM
Thanks for the heads up about the weigh in. I appreciate the encouragement. It has been such a hard year, and I need to get in a habit. I need to do this for the mental health as well. - Sugarbuzz 55.5 #3699 8:33PM
Which app do you use? - JediKitty 300.9 #620 8:59PM
Pedometer free by arawella corp. It does gps, so it mapped me on my walk. I was able to get a real distance not just steps. I had it in my pocket, so I didn't trust the count. It kept track of my speed, distance, figured calories burned. Worth the price (free). - Sugarbuzz 55.5 #3699 9:46AM
Welcome and excellent job! - NingyMouse
