    Sun 1/3: my husband and I walked a nature trail in the Sierra Foothills near Nevada City CA. The 2-mile walk took us about an hour, we did a lot of sightseeing :)

    Mon 1/4: The rain has arrived! I headed out while it was sprinkling. I really enjoyed it, and it was chilly enough so I didn't overheat in my hooded rain parka. The rain picked up a lot as I was heading back towards home so I cut my planned 5-ish miles to 3.5 mi, in 1 hour.

    I am in! I think I will aim for 100 miles too this month. I need to get caught up with that since I have just started this challenge. I will log in my miles on my journal and come back here for results.

    I don't have a step tracker or anything like that. But I usually walk the dog for 20 mins or so a day
    so I'd like to step it up a bit as I'm not losing any weight at all.

    Walk with Leslie Sansone 7,081 steps 3.04 miles 1:02:02 406 cals

    I decided I needed a bit more steps in so I walked with the video in the basement. At least, I was nice and warm!

    Now, if only MFP will fix the sync issues they are having with fitbit and all will be well.

    I have a fairly active job, so i'll try and put down total steps, and estimated steps outside of work hours too.
    Also takes about 3300 steps to walk to work, and walk home too. So that's 6600 steps for nothing more than commuting, if the weather is at least not raining (cold and wind is fine with me to walk to work lol)

    Lastly. Using phone pedometer, possibly over-estimated up to 3k steps by the end of each day.
    Steps taken outside of work (including commute to/from work), + distance, are estimates. But shouldn't be too far off.
    1 mile for me is roughly 2200 steps.

    04/Jan: Total Steps: 32,400....Non-Work Steps: 15-17,000+....Total Distance: 14.7 Miles.
    06/Jan: Total Steps: ....Non-Work Steps: ....Total Distance:
    07/Jan: Total Steps: ....Non-Work Steps: ....Total Distance:
    08/Jan: Total Steps: ....Non-Work Steps: ....Total Distance:
    09/Jan: Total Steps: ....Non-Work Steps: ....Total Distance:
    10/Jan: Total Steps: ....Non-Work Steps: ....Total Distance:

    My name is Vani. I want to join the group and go for the walking challenge.

    My job is desk job, so not many steps to count from there. I come home and walk on the treadmill. My personal goal is to log 10mi per week. I do not run only speed walk or some days just finish the distance and don't look at the time. This approach worked for me I am going for it again.

    Jan 4rth - 2 mi went for a walk with kids

    Totally awesome walking going on here today! This is groovy!

    It is really cold here today and the temperatures are really dropping. Rain is supposed to be showing up later as well as some snow! Looks like I may be walking indoors the rest of the week!
