It’s been a while since we have tracked our daily, weekly and monthly miles.  Each of us have a reason to keep going.  Whether it is chasing kids, keeping our hearts healthy or just staying fit and limber to keep going.  Mine, is because I have a messed up back.  
 

Recently, spasms have put me on the ground, wondering if I could get up and walk again. Not fun, when the dog is standing over me, breathing in my face.  Lol.

 

So, this year, I am trying to walk more. Walking the dog, thankfully, he is a slack leash heeler.  We walked 1.5 blocks and turned around, on 1-2. .46mi.  The next day, I took a break because I was sore, only walked .07 mi.  Sat.1-4, I pulled weeds, mowed, etc. and walked 2.2 mi. Mon. 1-6, walked the dog 1 square block, totaling the day at 1.4 mi.  Tue. 1-7, not much, then, I didn’t have my phone on me. Then, Wed., paying bills, running errands and such,I managed another mile. Today, 1-9, going to the store, errands, and canning, 1.1 mi.  It doesn’t sound like a lot, but my muscles are sore and I feel like I have been rung through a ringer.  Proves to me, I really need to get back in shape.  I let myself go and am determined to try to get back my strength.

Wow! That’s awesome Snapshot. I’m impressed.

 

 I am looking forward to seeing how you do, Ambergris.  
 

Friday, the 10th, It said, 2,367 steps, .67 mi.

Saturday, Jan 11, 2,249 steps, .63 mi.

Sunday, I finished reading a book and didn’t pick my phone up.  Seems close to 4 miles for the week. Better than I expected, but my hip is screaming at me any time I try to lift my right leg.  (I soooo need Mt_Rider’s chiro, tho, he wouldn’t touch my back either.  My chiro X-rayed me and said, no, no, absolutely not.  :sSig_help2:)

 

Today, is house cleaning day.  We shall see how many miles I can get.

One week in Nov. was 35.52.  I have to do something intentional every day (since I seem to eat every day)  LOL

 

I seem to skip walking about once a month on average.  Otherwise walk or do video every day--usually first thing.

Wow. I never posted in this forum for some reason???

 

Walk a lot of uncounted "concrete" miles weekly for work.

 

For last seven years, I walk for one hour three days per week as fast as I can, usually about 4.5 MPH which is as fast as my hips will let me go. So, 13-14 counted miles or thereabouts. Getting old sucks. :darthduck:

I agree wholeheartedly!   And 13-14 miles!  That’s impressive also, way to go!

1/21....  It gave me my steps... :ashamed0002:  34.  Could be I didn’t have my phone on me?  Good enough excuse.  Lol

1/22.... .44 mile

1/23....  .03 mile

1/24.... .55 mile

I didn’t have my phone on me, the 25-26th.  The 25th I had worked hard the day before & woke up gimping.

1/28....  1.5 miles. :icon19:

I know it's a good part of the reason I lost over 80 pounds!

Week ending 2/1  -- 36.22 miles.  This exercising with "intent" instead of just doing it, is paying off!

Had not seen this. I have a fitbit tracker that I haven't used in a long while. Haven't been able to get out and go walking like I used to with DH being sick. I don't like leaving him for very long. He is not that steady on his feet yet. Though he is doing much better than 3 months ago.

Shoot, I was going to pick up a pedometer at Walmart...  :(   I have not yet restarted my walking-the-dog habit.  

 

MtRider  :sigh:   I have been chucking ice and slinging sandy dirt across icy driveway.  That's CARDIO!  {and it's beginning to snow....AGAIN}

Guess we were lucky on the snow so far. I still haven't been able to get out and walk like I want. Hoping now that I don't have to even look at a grocery store or going to doctors 3 or 4 times a week, I can get out and walk the neighborhood again. My neighborhood from the entrance to the very back is 1 mile. So hoping to get back into walking that again and meeting all the new neighbors we now have as well. Used to walk the neighborhood almost daily about 2 to 4 times. It will be slow going trying to get back into that again. But going to give it a try. 

You guys are doing great so far. Keep up the good work.

While cooking collards, I did walk around the market several times while they were cooking. But don't know how many miles that would have been.  It is a small market about the size of walking around a 7-11.

I joined the health club last week and have been going 3-4 times a week. Discouraging how much muscle mass I've lost in 3 years after our move. Was told about the Indian Reservation health club. Military veterans get a big discount. Visited, got a 7-day free pass, and then joined. What a HUGE place. It's considered govt owned. This particular Indian nation is very wealthy due to the casino nearby. First class in everything.  Haven't tracked my miles yet, though.  B)

Missed yet ANOTHER opportunity to get a pedometer yesterday.  We'd gotten nearly everything on the list when DH went to grocery and I went to thrift store.  So......we went home. 

 

MtRider  :shrug:  ....not doing much today but have done the 15 stairs couple times.  Does it count double at 9,000' elevation?  ;)

Homesteader, I think I need to join a fitness place. I have been looking at planet fitness.  I don't even want to know how much muscle mass I have lost since my neck surgery.  Lost a great deal of upper body strength with my neck.
