Ok..I'm ready. Just finished my coffee and breakfast and I'm off for at least 15 min. If I'm smart I'll walk 10 min in one direction and I'll have to do 20 min just to get home. smile

Did about 17 min this morning. When the heat and humidity are gone I'm sure I'll be able to do more. I was drenched when I got home this morning and had to take a shower so I could do some housework..imagine that!

Yep, take that shower = we don't want you smelling up the neighborhood (lol).

Does walking (with a purpose) thorugh Walmart count? I took the day off work to get some recall work done on my car, then went to Walmart. It was getting so hot out I decided Walmart was as good as the mall. I clocked myself and walked a full 20 min with my cart through the store using the wide aisles. I made may way through all the departments a couple times,[no shower needed smile ] then picked up the things I went there for and came home. Now it's time for a salad for lunch, and clean the walls in the dining room sick

I'm wondering the same thing myself. When I take my MIL shopping we spend 3 HOURS in Walmart alone. That's gotta count for something...lol...

In my opinion, ANY walking you do counts! The fact that you are walking is important and from my reading and talking to others, the health experts are agreeing. Gone are those days when you HAD to be in full walking gear and on a mission to be considered a walker. Way to go guys. I did my "do not take the elevator" to all 4 floors at work today. But I will admit, my KNEES are trying to rebel(lol). I am looking forward to hearing about TOMORROW!

Today I walked around the bus yard 2 times before I went home. Took me 22 min. It's a big place with over 100 buses and parking for about 150 people plus all the administrative offices and of course the 6 bay garage and 2 bay body shop. But it was cooler at 8:30 than it would have been at 10.

Also, I've started parking my car farther away from the door I go in to sign up for my work, at least in the morning. In the afternoon I park where I can find a spot. Either way, I'm getting in more walking than just my "dedicated" time.

Way to go Angela on walking up 4 flights. I get winded just thinking about it! smile

Hi WalkingGranny!

I am IMPRESSED. At your age doing MORE than my "lazy" self is doing!

I find that with working I am not doing as much walking as I need to be doing for my BIG hips and butt (lol). But I do make sure I exercise inside no matter how I am feeling or what excuse I can think off. It is working - just my stomach is not moving.

Thanks for sharing!
