    Hi everyone! I would like to join this discussion as well.

    I am a soon to be 70 yr old treadmill walker. I try to get in at least 10,000 steps per day, much of which is done on the TM. Because I am a fair-weather walker, I do like to walk outside when the weather cooperates.

    Two years ago, I lost 13 lbs by walking. The weight has crept back on since my walking slowed down, but I am back at it again to help lessen the effects of the holiday eating that will happen.

    I am excited to be a part of this group!

    Nicuqueen...welcome to our walking group!
    So glad to have you!

    I'd love to join the 2019 Walking Challenge. Walking is my favorite activity along with Yin yoga. I'm in Florida so I get to walk outside most days, I especially enjoy beach walking.

    I LOVE Leslie and walk at home! It helped me lose a lot of weight about 4 yrs ago. Unfortunately it found me again so now it's back to walking it off again. 😁

    I super love Leslie Sansone's walks too!

    This was a fun combo of 70’s and 80’s music. Happy Friday walking friends!

    I've made it 4 days in a row now. I'm liking Leslie's walking videos. They move enough that I get a little sweat going but gentile enough I don't start contracting. I have been adding weights too and enjoying it a lot.

    Way to go, Crying Blue! Don’t overdo it. <3

    I would also like to join the walking challenge. Just wondering what everyone wears for outside walking when it’s cold out. I do have a TM but prefer outside walking!!

    I wear as many layers as I can. You can always take stuff off if you get too hot. Fleece is my friend! ☺

    Yes, layers are the key for cold weather walks. It’s easier for me to bundle up in the winter than trying not to melt in 90+ degrees in the summer.

    Do you usually just wear your running shoes or do you wear boots

    Hi! I'm in. 2019 Walk it off Challenge. Lets go!
  • wtbarunnerwtbarunner Posts: 51Member Member Posts: 51Member Member
    So I am going to start my challenge with 11000 steps a day 7 days a week and for distance I am going to do 10miles a week to start and then hopefully increase monthly as I have not been walking to much distance.

    I bundle up and walk outside. I work from home and either walk out back or drive to a state park at lunchtime.

    I'm Walking to Mordor and have Met the Elves:

    I hope you’re enjoying the holiday break!
    My husband brought home a standing rib roast, a ham, and a turkey as his Christmas bonus... sorry to offend any vegetarians!
    It was delicious... but I’m done with large meals for a long time!

    Time to stretch it out this morning and get moving again!

    I had to start doing something the day after Christmas or it was only going to get worse!

    Have gotten over 10000 steps each day and making that my goal.
