    Checking in for today - 3.06 miles in 1 hour 1 minute. Much better walk than yesterday's, despite it being just as cold and the terrain being much hillier than it was yesterday. Dressing appropriately is definitely the trick! :smile:

    Check ins so far
    2/1/16 - 13759

    Will aim for daily posts all hopefully over 12000 steps.
    Good luck for you in the cold. Much easier to head outside for a walk in Australian summer.

    Love this! Getting back into exercising slowly after a long history of knee injuries. Very excited.

    Checking in for today!

    1/1/15 - not much (4321 total steps for the day)
    1/2/15 - 40 minute walk with the dogs (6786 total steps for the day)
    1/3/15 - 4 hours at the Zoo (9590 total steps for the day)

    We spent 4 hours at the Zoo today and it was chilly, but they have enough indoor stuff to keep you from getting too cold. We found we actually like it when it's winter time, because not many people go out in this kind of weather.

    Hello Hope you don't mind me joining late. I need to get my steps up after a knee injury so starting slow and just want to work up to a decent amount per day. Using a Fitbit. Goal is at least 6,000 and 10,000+ on days I don't do other exercise.

    1/1: 4249
    1/2: 4888
    1/3 not much yet but the day is not over and I have been resting today with a bit of congestion

    I'm in. I have a 12 week old baby, so walking is how I'm getting back into exercise slowly. I've started wearing my Garmin Vivofit again, so my aim is to reach my steps goal every day :)

    My check in for today. Below my calorie limit and at 3K steps for the day even though I battled with weakness and fatigue. I also met my protein goal for the day! My first official weigh in was today too and I am now down 2 pounds from a week ago. :)

    Throughout my day today I managed to get in my 3 miles and nearly 7,000 steps, which is great compared to my usual day. I sit at a desk all day typing, so there's not a lot of opportunity for walking around. My main goal is to simply increase that any way I can.
