My pedometer works great, has different pace settings that can be changed to the kind of walk you're doing. It even keeps track of the past 7 days worth of steps. Wonderful when you can't remember things!

I can just imagine the core work you're doing. No longer sitting in front of the computer. Now it's exercising in front of the computer.

Bizi good that you're walking and then drinking low carb drinks!

Finally remembered to weigh before breakfast. Holding steady at 135. Tonight was the first time in over a week I've eaten after 10pm. And it was out of pure boredom.

I'm still using the ball as a computer chair, and walking/jogging as much as half a mile almost every day.

Holding steady is good!

I've been so busy with rearranging furniture in the house and cleaning rooms and moving things I haven't had time to "exercise". But I have lost 4 pounds. I just hope they don't find me again.

Eating out of boredom is one of my huge problems. I'm looking forward to the cooler weather so I can have hot tea at night instead of food!

Cool weather's coming, Karousel! We're expecting 450 tonight in east central Iowa.

Yes, boredom eating is a problem with me also. All afternoon. I wonder if a cup of hot tea with fiber powder in it might help? I have the fiber powder; now to develop a taste for the tea!

Hot tea with lemon works wonderfully. So I'll be enjoying my tea while DH is eating ice cream. I've loved tea since I was young. People either love it or hate it. Or what if you try flavored teas?

School started so this week I've been doing to the gym. The two days I went I had so many problems and didn't last very long. It wasn't until the second day that I realized the gym had shut off it's A/C and had the door open letting all the humidity in. This did this in Spring as well.

This week I'll try going in the afternoon because usually by then the A/C is back on. I won't have as much energy as I do in the mornings but I'll figure something out!

My walking companion, Rosie, tore a ligament in her rear leg (the vet believes). I haven't been walking for a week! We're expecting she'll need surgery but has an appointment Wednesday with a vet able to do it if need be. $$

How sad that Rosie is hurt. I hope she heals quickly so you can get back to walking! It's so hard when our babies get hurt.

Tomorrow I'm going on a hike with my hiking group and I'm excited. The leader was away for a few months so we haven't done any hiking. Plus it was summer vacation for my DD so I wouldn't have been able to go anyway. I'm looking forward to getting out tomorrow. The temp will be in the 60's most of the day. Perfect weather for hiking!

Yep, Rosie won't be walking with me anytime soon. Surgery in a couple weeks, at least 8 weeks rehab. I need to get back to walking but those sad brown eyes...hard to disappoint the old girl.

And either my exercise ball has developed a small leak or has stretched out irreparably. Guess they aren't meant for constant use.

Uh oh, your exercise ball has a leak. Not good.

Today I went garage saling with some friends. We ended up at a town garage sale and walked quite a bit. I kept track of my steps and racked up over 14,500!
