Now that’s just impressive to tell you the truth!! Walked to and from work, at lunchtime, and generally moved more. Yay and well done. 12 months ago

Momentous decision this week – because I’ve managed to walk to and from work so many times, I’m going to give up my bus pass and become a pedestrian only. Bit of a challenge, but for the last four weeks I’ve really increased the amount I walk and I’m comfortable with this. Huge progress on this goal! 12 months ago
And I want to remember that it’s not JUST about the exercise and the weight loss. Walking helps me to remember that this is my most important goal. It calms and soothes me. It gets me out in the fresh air. It gets me tired and helps me sleep well. Walking through the day gives my body a physical reminder that I want to be active and light. It’s also about giving me a sense of triumph – that I can do this, that I am not lazy, that I will stick at things, that I am fitter and stronger and more confident. I love it! 13 months ago
That’s been key for me with weight loss and walking. It’s not about being ‘perfect’ or not. Yesterday, I thought I hadn’t done that well. But it turned out it was one of my highest walking days of the year. And it was because I did it through the day. Walked ten minutes here, twenty minutes there – nothing too exhausting, but just good steady exercise built in to get it done. And it was a good day.
So that’s my reminder – step by step, because each one counts. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other. 13 months ago
Using a pedometer – simple and effective, and a really good way to see how much activity I’m getting in each day. Definitely going to prioritise this again. 13 months ago
I just feel I’ve slipped with the two weeks out for interviews, and it hurts again. Sigh. But I did my lunchtime walk and my evening walk yesterday, which felt good. It’s such a key goal for me, and I know I can do it. 14 months ago
I do it all the time, and it’s so good to feel fit and healthy. I have no problems with walking, my hip has stopped hurting, I barely take painkillers any more. 15 months ago
I’m well over target on this goal, and am walking usually about 90 minutes a day, but always more than 60 minutes. Which is a lot! My fitness has increased, and I skip along merrily (well, kind of!). The pain in my leg comes and goes, and I think I’ve got more used to it these days.
Good progress on this though. 15 months ago
I relish it with every fibre of my being. Walking in minus 5 this morning, I felt alive. I felt so cold, but the smells were so sharp, i could smell the frost. I felt cold and alive and purely happy to be walking to work. I felt the strength in my legs, the increased capacity in my lungs, the joy of smiling at my flirty guy in the park. It’s all so sweet. I love walking. I need to buy new shoes, but I love walking. 16 months ago
I’ve had two pairs of these for a year, and need to replace them with a slightly smaller size. 16 months ago
Blech. I have been really really pushing myself this week, and have been walking all the way to work every morning (40 minutes!!) and then at lunchtime, and a night time walk. So averaging 90 minutes of solid walking each day, and I feel terrific. I can feel myself getting fitter, and it’s fabulous.
But tonight, it was like walking on a knife, and when I got home I saw that I had a huge blister under my big toe which had burst when I was out. Blood and pus everywhere, lovely!!!
But I have very little feeling from my ankles down, so should be a-okay tomorrow.
Well on target on this one – I love walking so much. I had my hip x-rayed on Tuesday, so will get the results from that shortly. 16 months ago
It felt good. Not just good, it felt amazing. In the dark and the wind and the rain, I felt strong, energised and powerful. I think I could have pushed on and walked the entire distance, so I’m going to try doing that tomorrow. 16 months ago
Police warning all morning. I went out at lunchtime, and it was almost impossible to walk for longer than about 10 minutes, gale force winds. So I only managed about 20 minutes walking today, and I do feel kind of cooped up and cross now at night, lol. 16 months ago
Vigorously, I mean, for a total of 67 minutes. I was so struck by how weight has fallen off me again since I started walking again. It’s definitely a combination of eating well and exercise, and I feel inspired to do this all year. To be fair, it took the visit to the doctor to talk about my hip pain. Interestingly, although I haven’t taken pain killers for the last two days, the pain is constant. It doesn’t get worse whether I walk or not, so I’m quite relaxed about it now. And the buzz I get from walking is amazing. I love it, it makes me feel alive and happy and healthy, really gets the blood pumping. I feel a little bit daunted by the time set on this goal, but then I guess 2 million steps last year was a lot too, but I got that done and lost a load of weight in the process! 16 months ago
Having brand new resolutions/goals. I’m missing last year’s!! I guess it’s familiarity and all that. Anyway, I have a time goal rather than a step goal for this year. I was so pleased to get over 2 million steps last year, but this year I’m aiming to walk in time – just in case my hip plays up too badly
So, I’ve done my first 21 minute walk of the day. The sun is shining, it’s quite mild, and it’s blown my cobwebs and hangover away. Step one on this goal, and I am just going to break it down into chunks. This goal is so closely related to my weight loss goal, and overall health. It’s very important to me. 16 months ago
