Lets Take an Old Fashion Walk

Alright everyone who is dying to start the competition again here it goes. I am going to try something new and see if you all like it. It only has to do with exercising. Next week I'll start something having to do with eating healthy.

This week everyone needs to walk/run/jog at least 5 miles. I know that 5 miles isn't a lot but keep on reading. Every week we are going to add on a mile until we are all walking/running/jogging around 15 miles a week. I figure if we just add it slowly it won't be as hard. If anyone has a better idea let me know. Once we get into the higher amount of miles you can count walking around the store or your house, as long as you have a pedometer to keep track of how far you have actually walked.

Good luck to everyone who is going to participate. We will come up with some sort of competition with a reward soon.

Oh boy, I'm in Memphis and walking down the street is enough to make you faint! I can't believe how hot it is here. But I'm in!

Will someone please figure out how many steps (pedometer wise) equals a mile? I have such a hard time knowing how far anything is as it feels much farther than it actually is! One thing I do know, I walk in a 5K most every labor day and we walk as fast as I can possibly walk. The 5K takes just about 45 minutes. That means that 5 miles should definitely take at least an hour, probably more.

Natalie here-I am ready to go again. I like this idea. I have been in Memphis and haven't taken any time to do my walking so I am doing it all today. I am having Matt take me five miles away from our house and drop me off. Silly-I know, but I can't loose the first week. Plus, I have to get home somehow. So, I will let you know how that goes! Best of Luck everyone!!!

Does walking at work count? I don't have a pedometer, but I've been forcing myself to use the stairs and I do at least a cumulative hour of walking each day.

Are we supposed to report by Monday how we did? If so I did my walking. Thanks Kels!

When I was looking for help with dual disorder I didn’t know where to turn. I finally went with this center and they helped me save my life.

We all need help sometimes and when I needed marijuana addiction help. I knew there was somewhere I could turn.

Thanks for the info. It can be really hard getting help for addiction. I was looking for eating disorder rehab and found many useful resources on the web.
